I remember reading a line like the title of this post in one of Terry Goodkind's books. A former boyfriend - more moons ago than I care to count and waaaaay before the chipmunk - knew I loved to read. I was new in my apartment, didn't like to do a whole bunch and hadn't wanted to spring for cable, so he bought me WIZARD'S FIRST RULE. Before long, I was grinning and asking for the next book. He bought, not just the second book, but the third and fourth books as well. I devoured each one like my life depended upon it. The last book I read in the series was SOUL OF THE FIRE. By that point, I think I'd gone on Goodkind overload and needed a break. But I can never deny I was enthralled with those books. So it was nice to find out they did a TV series based on the SWORD OF TRUTH books. The show, Legend of the Seeker, is said to be pretty good to watch, though I think 2010 was it's last year.
It goes to show how Goodkind's hard work booked it to Hollywood. You can check out episodes on Hulu. Here is a teaser:
What book, or book series, do you believe would make for great prime time TV? What famous actor or actress could you see playing the main character?
