“I know that some of you are concerned that a TV show will be “untrue” to the books, due to the need to add content in order to flesh out the story to a full season. Never fear! Look, the books will always be the books. No adaptation, either for film or TV, will or can completely replicate and remain faithful to them—it’s a totally different art form!”
-Lauren Oliver, on Delirium becoming a TV series!
(I know she’s specifically talking about this project, but I love how well she’s articulated a point I’ve never quite been able to get across: A) The books will always be the books, and B) It’s a totally different art form))
