i feel confused by book trailers that are like “theatrical adaptions” of plots and characters from the book.
to me, they still feel like trailers for MOVIES, not trailers for BOOKS. after i watch one i like, i want to watch the MOVIE that the trailer refers to. i don’t really feel particularly interested in the BOOK.
but the movie doesn’t exist. it’s only a “virtual” or “imaginary” movie, or something.
book trailers like this seems sort of “unseemly” and “counter-productive” to me. (this maybe has to do with the idea of a trailer being directly imported from the context of a movie to the context of a book. it doesn’t seem like the “natural” way to “promote” or “showcase” a book.)
i really want to watch this movie about RICHARD MONOMIAN the DRUG DEALER played by that guy from girls, tho.
people (god especially elem. school teachers) always say stuff like that; i guess maybe i’m not very visual or something but reading never makes me feel like i’m watching a movie unless i am confused by something and try to visualize it; usually reading is a lot more like listening to an audiobook
