What was the first book that made you feel like you really identified with the protagonist?
Don’t know if it was the first, but it was definitely the book that made me identify with the protagonist the most of all books, and it’s the Emily of New Moon series. Which I actually wrote about on here before quite often, for example in the context of my name change, as I changed my name to Emilia at least partly because of Emily of New Moon. We aren’t totally alike of course – that would be scary – and also have a lot of differences, but still it’s such an unbelievably relatable character to me – and the whole series really, not just Emily herself – and has been over the years, it’s crazy!
What was such a book for you? Do you still identify equally strongly with the protagonist, or has it changed over the years? 🙂
What’s your favourite book?
It’s hard to say because I like a lot of books, but I suppose my all time favourite is “Emily Of New Moon” by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the whole series. I identified myself a lot with Emily when I was a teen and there is still so much in this series that I can relate to and so many quotes I love, and it has helped me to look in a different way at so many things.
What is the worst book to movie adaptation you’ve ever seen and which movie was much better than the book?
Don’t have much to say here really, at least not about movie to book adaptations. But as for book to movie, I’ll pick “Emily From New Moon”, because the movie is gross. There are some weird sexual scenes or allusions, which you WON’t find in the book at all, and generally, being a huge fan of both “Emily…” and Lucy Maud Montgomery’s other works, I felt like this movie was pretty much ripped of that moving beauty the book has. Just very crappy.
Which book and movie would you pick?
