I dont want it to follow the novel...love stories shouldnt be tragic but magical.
Realistically, it will be 90% of the novel so will be a painful journey to watch but as long as in the end they do come together.
SLB is able to show divine and infinite love...so intense...it will totally ruin it if it has a sad ending...too much bad happening in the world so you need some sort of hope when getting lost in the fictional world!
I hope this show doesnt go the novel way. I will be devastated!
