Bestselling Books Made Into Movies
I like how reading lets a person imagine the detail. Watching makes the viewer see someone else's interpretation of the story. Seeing another perspective can be interesting, but isn't nearly as entertaining as creating a world for yourself.
Was the novel The Help better than The Help movie (both available at the Al Harris Library)? Was seeing the dinosaurs brought to life on the screen better than imagining the per-cretaceous era in the book, Jurassic Park?
Are there ever movie adaptions that surpass the book? Come by the Al Harris Library and see my display.
Let me know what you think.
