Changes From Book to Show
I've been watching the show and reading the book at the same time, and I've noticed some changes.
Some- like Jonathan's sand horses actually being dramatic and impressive, or Segundus not forgetting who Childermass is- I don't mind, but others I don't like as much. Like Norrell stealing Strange and Arabella's letters, for example- I'm almost offended on his behalf. It's so evil! Even if he
going to intercept their post, why not reseal it and send it on? Stopping them from having any contact at all just seems so mean-spirited!
And then there are ones that I'm not entirely sure about, like Jonathan talking to the trees in ep 3. It's interesting that they're trying to lay down the Raven King's alliances thing early, but at the same time it's such a fundamental change in the limits of magic compared to the book- he can't even move a forest, but in the book he moves an entire city (people and all) to America! And it's mostly treated as a sort of joke.
What do you think, meme? Do you like the changes? What else have you noticed?
