Terrible
19 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I read the book about 50 years ago and didn't remember too many details but I do remember being left with a good feeling from reading it. With the exception of most of Part 1 the adaptation of "Childhood's End" left me feeling depressed and unsatisfied. Seemed like I had to sit through hours of sad music and sorrowful scenes to get to the few 'nuggets' from the original story. That wasn't how the book 'felt'. I understand the need to update and modify stories for television but not to the point of changing the entire 'feel' of it. I now intend to re-read the novel so as to get the foul taste of this movie adaptation out of my head.
