Book Girls’ Guide

    I still want to watch the Swedish version, but I enjoyed the American version more than I expected. I think it helped that there were several years between reading and watching, so I wasn’t as attached to the details of the book. Additionally, I think I would have felt differently about some of the changes if I didn’t know Fredrick Backman’s wife was very involved and that he said he expected movie adaptations of his book to be adaptations of his story through someone else’s eyes and not an exact replica of the book.  – Melissa
