Hello, Tiss. Yes, certainly, you shouldn't see the new film - don't worry - it's permitted not to! I agree 100% about what the genius of AR is, and you'll see my extremely similar thoughts (which I do believe that you'll like) about this on So some people might say, given my credentials just above, 'Well, why is she enthusing about the film, then?' as in major ways it diverges from what I mark as special and brilliant about AR's books. I think I've answered this in other posts about the aim of TARS and about children nearly 100 years on, so I won't expand on it again here. It fulfils a role, and I believe a useful one, for the next-but-one generation, within the limited budget that was inevitably available and with attention inevitably to getting young audiences in. We continue of course to hope earnestly for a benevolent TARS millionaire one day to leave his fortune to the creation of a beautiful representation of our beloved books on-screen, including WH which always hovers near the top of my favourite-AR list. What a gift that would be.....
