I'm a big fan of many of the Apple TV+ shows, and I like Larson, but the trailer is not compelling.
Not sure where you're getting any of that information from. It's a well-loved book, by any measure (4.4/5 on Apple Books, 4.6/5.0 on Amazon). It's a NYTimes Best seller. The only substantively negative reviews are from people who seem to be significantly religious and take offense at it, or those who think it's "man-hating" for showing women being empowered without the help of men.
That said, my mom loved the book and says she likes the show so far.

Kierkegaarden said:Looks great! BoB is a favorite of mine, and it probably was in some part due to the actors — so I hope they found comparable actors for this series.
I don’t understand why Apple doesn’t go more into dramatizations of historic events. So much has happened in history, and picking any singular event would be more entertaining than most of the fiction that they churn out (and more educational).
