I literally started watching the show because of CC’s annoyance towards it. I am that level of petty lol
I literally started cackling to myself when I read that post.
Seriously though it’s been a really long time since I read the book but I definitely think they’ve done a better job in making the characters interesting and sympathetic because I remember barely liking anyone except Alec at the time. Plus keeping the story actually interesting because I remember being mostly bored… I so rarely abandon a book series, but it just wasn’t engaging me, and then I realised who wrote it and I didn’t touch the series again til now… and only because I’d heard she was not happy xD.
