Not really sure how I feel about some of the changes made in the most recent episode, specifically Mia's relationship with Pauline (and Anita) and the circumstances of Izzy's birth.
I think there are a lot of ways to be intimate with someone, and I preferred the more maternal intimacy of Mia and Pauline from the book. I also think Mia and Anita's relationship made a lot more sense in the book. Pauline and Anita had really gone out of their way to take care of Mia, and so of course Anita would continue that after Pauline's death. As opposed to the show where they only seemed to know each other through Pauline.
And I thought it was much more interesting how in the book Izzy was wanted and planned for, but her premature birth and subsequent health concerns are what put such a strain on her relationship with Elena. I think the accidental pregnancy in the show felt much less complex and almost a little cheap. I know they touched upon Izzy being a difficult baby, but I don't think that had the same emotional reach.
