Hi... I am a complete bookworm... I have read thousands and thousands of books. As Busby says , imagination is a wonderful thing as in we visualise the setting, the characters... And can grow fond of the what we bring to "life" in our minds eye, especially if it was an "epic"..... Many times , I have then seen that there is a film, of a particular book that I loved... And that's where it falls flat for me .. because usually, it is nothing like how I "portrayed" in my mind.. the characters are all wrong LOL... And if I see a really good film, I cannot then read the book of the film, as that has ruined the story !!.. But maybe I'm a bit odd !!

No, Elfin, you are not odd, it's just that you don't need the input of imbeciles to get or keep your brain moving.

...And on the flip of the coin , of my opinion , I know full well how Game of thrones had such a huge following. I have not seen it myself. But all of my children could not stop talking about it. They watched the series of it on TV first.. which then prompted them all to buy the compete boxed set of books to read as and when they got chance. I have not heard of Dragonlance chronicles ( I'm an old fuddy duddy !)...
