The book is (almost) always better

So I wrote earlier how I read The Lathe of Heaven. And how it's amazing. And added to my list of utmost favorite books.

Now I've seen the made-for-TV movies. Both of them. One from 1980 and the other from 2002. The first one was better because it followed the book. However, it had awful acting, awful effects and awful music. And it was recorded onto DVD from something else... VHS? It was very poor quality. The second had decent acting, but they screwed up the storyline rather a lot. How can you leave the aliens out? How?

Anyhow, read the book. Don't see the movies.
