Of course many bookworms will bristle at the thought of a beloved book becoming a movie.
And they won't be shy about sharing their opinions, either.
The recent release of a trailer for the Netflix adaptation of Persuasion by Jane Austen has proved to be no exception.
If you haven't watched it, well, Twitter users suggest that you just don't — BuzzFeed shared a number of examples of viewers tearing down the July 15 release.
What really took off, though, was one particular fan's disdain for the film.
One tweet of note: "Sorry this has proven America to be an unsafe place and i simply cannot return and shall be applying for asylum in France."
We've embedded the trailer below for those who want to see just what the fuss is about.
