I am an avid reader, as you well know. And, I am a film-aholic. Books have often been made into films. Some (not all) of my favorite books that were adapted for film are:
The Life of Pi, by Yann Martel. I read the book when it was first published, years ago, and enjoyed it. I enjoyed the film, as well.
Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo.
The Age of Innocence, by Edith Wharton
Bridges of Madison County, by Robert James Waller
Sophie’s Choice, by William Styron
Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte
My Sister’s Keeper, by Jodi Picoult
Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy
These are just a few, and there are so many more I could name, hundreds for sure.
When viewing a film adapted from a book I have read, I try to see the film for what it is, and not compare it to the book. I have found it works best for me that way. If I try to compare, I usually end up not enjoying the movie. I do not see a film first. Any film transitioned from a book, is one I see only if I have read the book.
