About the book
Nolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don't let the bastards grind you down.
So I started it, and the beginning was really freaking drawn out and dull. Halfway debated marking this a DNF because of that. But my interest as to why this was getting its own series was higher than my willingness to quit reading this book.
After finishing it, I have to say... I don't see it. I don't get why people like this so much or what it deserves a show. There were some interesting bits and it does make me compare mini things with today's government. Which is actually kind of scary because it was written a couple years before I was born. I'm not saying that it was not thought provoking, I'm saying it was boring AF.
I do suggest reading it before watching the series though, so any thoughts and it will be good are crushed. Seriously though, I probably won't watch it. Especially if it's anything like the book.
