    Not sure if it was covered here or not, but speaking of book covers, look what they did to Anne of Green Gables.

    Disgusting and sad. Not to mention they picked a blond. What is the world coming to?

      “Not to mention they picked a blond. What is the world coming to?”

      That was also one of the things that really confused me too Nina. Not only is she in such a disgustingly sexualized position (seriously what the heck?!) But why in the world would they pick someone who looks absolutely NOTHING like how Anne is suppose to look? Especially since there is such a big emphasis in the books that she has red hair. That would be like randomly having all of the Weasley’s from Harry Potter in the films become all brunettes instead of all red-heads. It would be just as ridiculous! This is very bizarre (and sad) indeed.

      Although I will say and I hope you didn’t make it seem the way you did. You seem more upset with her hair color than anything else. Especially that she has blonde hair. Would you be just as upset if they picked a brunette?
