For this week’s book club, I’d like to talk a little bit about the Hulu adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere versus the book.
Has anyone watched it? What did you think? I’m sure a lot of us (including myself, of course) have been spending a lot of time watching TV and reading, so let’s chat!
- First, the casting: did you think that the casting director did well? Does Reese Witherspoon fit Mrs. Richardson? In looks, demeanor, acting? Is Kerry Washington a good Mia Warren?
- As for the show itself, do you think that it is a good adaptation of the book so far? Do you like or dislike the changes that the show has made to the story?
- This one isn’t book-related, but I’m curious: what do you think of how Hulu is releasing this show: in the old-style episodic format, where they release an episode a week? Would you rather binge the whole thing at once?
As always, keep comments courteous and civil. We can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
Check back next Sunday for more discussion questions!
