Drawn That Way

- It's difficult to get some of my friends to read--Not that I force or badger them or anything. Although largely out of print and really only available via online (or public library, if you happen to be that fortunate), I've strongly recommended that my friends (or anyone, for that matter) read, 'Who Censored Roger Rabbit?'
Because it's the entire reason for the film existing, albeit known under a different title, and because the plot from the film greatly differs from the book. Exponentially, even. Granted, it's much more dark than the film and actually a bit heartbreaking.. It's a great read and I'm trying not to spoil anything for anyone, but I strongly feel as though they would enjoy it. I feel that most anyone would.
The problem that I frequently run into is that my friends (and most people I meet) are stuck on the film. So stuck, in fact, that they had not only never known about the book, but they were completely against the idea of reading it.
Have you ever had to deal with people not giving a good book a chance, due to their blind devotion to a film adaptation?
