"How lovely, God, to waken all alone, and bath and dress alone, and eat alone. When we get married Candle, we must spend some time apart to stop us going stale."

Poor Things by Alasdair Gray


I am fortunate enough to have seen the film and read the book, pretty close together as well. I never expect films to perfectly resemble books, nor should they, but it is always interesting to see how they compare and contrast. I liked both, although they really are quite different beasts with different focuses. Neither were anywhere near as controversial as some reviews/opinions I read beforehand which can only have been made by people that had neither seen the film nor read the book.
