Welcome to my monthly Book-to-Screen post. Due to the fact that theaters all around the world are closing their doors due to COVID-19, this post will be getting a temporary makeover. Don’t worry, this post will resume its regular scheduled programming in the near future!
This month I thought it would be fun to talk about the newly released series Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng now playing on Hulu. My daughter and I have watched the first two episodes and so far we are both really enjoying the adaptation. I love Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, so right away I knew this was a show I wanted to watch. I love how it takes on a number of issues such as – mother and daughter relationships, racial issues, social class, bullying, and more. I must admit that my memory of the book is a bit fuzzy, so I am not the best person to compare the book vs the movie. I would love to know what you think so far.
Are you watching this series? Are you enjoying it? How does it compare to the book?
Let’s get social…
