    I'm all about making the adaptation the best it can be. For the most part, what you like about a book won't be the same about what you like about a filmed version of the book: film allows for a much more visual approach to storytelling, whereas novels allow you to really get inside the characters' heads and really know what they're thinking. Because of that, I'm much more amenable to film-makers changing things up. If they treat the source material like it's a Bible or something, you might get a nice adaptation of a book, but it probably won't be appropriately cinematic in the same way that non-adaptation films often are.
