I read the book

I’ll start with saying I read the book and I understand that books are almost always better than their movie/tv show adaptations so my review will have some bias. They did change the show into a race and class thing, which I didn’t mind and I understand why they made that choice. What bothered me was how sexual they made it because it didn’t enhance the story in any way. It just made for uncomfortable viewing. Maybe I’m just tired of entertainment writers leaning on sex to sell a story. It’s lazy and not creative.
