Hubby and I saw Star Wars and YES! We loved it!
Over the course of several weeks people would talk about the movie and how much it was like number 4 in the original series. I heard people say it was a rip off, it was the same story and why pay money to see the same move just a decade or more different.
First off J.J. Abrams did the same thing to Star Trek and everyone loved it. That man is brilliant he takes the basic story that has already been told and makes it better! Why reinvent the wheel just make it better. That is what J.J Abrams does he take the same story and recreates it making it better than the original. I cried and gasped even though I could see what was coming it still hit me hard and that is a good story teller does.
Isn't that what most authors do they recreate a story that has pretty much have been written only try and make it better.
Mystery Romance (Female tries to fix something that has wronged her. Alpha Male tries to keep her safe and evil guys always have monologues which good will defeated.) Same story over and over again but some are better written than other that will keep reads flocking to the same author time and time again. Its the same story as others have created but it is all about who can tell the story better.
Apple created the amazing Iphone which personal was amazing at first but they kept recreating the same items only improving on small things. While other companies like Nokia, Samsung ran with the idea making their phone better than Apples but still using the basic concepts people love. Texting, Camera and touch screen. Again I say why Create the Wheel when you can make it better than the original.
So when reading a novel I understand I will read the same story over and over again its the author who can recreate a story that pulls me in to the point everything around me fades away and I am walking the streets of a small town wondering if everyone around me could be friend or foe.
