TGIF is a feature at GReads which recaps the posts for the week and has a different question each week for bloggers to answer.
This Friday's Question:
Book to Movie: Which book turn movie do you feel did the best adaptation? What about the worst?
This is a tough question. I have a hard time with books being made into movies. Most of the time I'm disappointed with the way a book was made into a movie. They never seem to be much alike, and sometimes the differences are overwhelming. I always feel like the movie takes away from the value of the book. Anyway, since I don't really have a best that I can think of, I'm going to tell you a couple that I didn't like.
1. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I loved this book and felt like it had so much heart and soul. The movie, however, I felt didn't have the depth that I found in the book.
2. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I found this book so funny and entertaining, but the movie seemed to just drag on and was pretty boring.
So those are two that I can think of off hand. There are books that were made into movies that I can't wait to see! Those are:
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
