We live in a world full of video streaming services where "Netflix and chill" is a universal pass-time. These services keep pushing out movies and TV shows upon movies and TV shows. It is an era where books have become an afterthought, relics of the past. Books will always have a loyal group of readers to serve and cater to. There's just no going around the fact that books are not as popular and widespread as they were before. Books have always been an integral part of history since its early days. They contribute to entertain people way before the advent of music and moving pictures. They are also essential in the recording, preservation, and spread of information and knowledge across generations. If books were not the great medium that they were, who knows how much of history would have been lost and not written down.
Academics through various ages have used books to teach and spread their knowledge to the masses. Artists have taken advantage of books to be able to express and showcase their creative works. In fact, going back to the idea of videos, people tend to forget just how much of an impact that books have had on this popular medium of entertainment. There have been many TV shows based on books that have released over the years. Just to give you a refresher, we've made a list of some of the best TV adaptations of books today. Check it out below and tell us what you thought in the comments section.
With how novels set the bar high, it's kinda hard for adaptations to keep up. But Hulu did it well with its adaptation of Margaret Atwood's novel. It is set in the future where America is under a theocratic rule that forces fertile women to be impregnated by men from wealthy families. If you're curious about what it has in store for you, check it out The Handmaid's Tale on the websites below!
