Did you read "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett? Did you like it?
I know people who LOVED it and people who HATED it. Not very many people had a middle of the road attitude about the book (at least not that I know personally!).
Now the book is a series on television!
Today, when I was supposed to be revising my WIP, I accidentally watched the first episode:
Have you watched the series? What's your opinion? hahaha... (evil laugh, because I know what happens to the bad guy in the end...)
The book is always better than the movie/series/whatever.
