Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. It is a great way of discovering new blogs and meeting fellow book bloggers, talking about books and authors, and sharing our love for literature.
This week’s question is: “What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?”
Usually, I like books better than their film adaptations. However, I really liked Charlotte Gray (2001). This was the one film I can think of I liked better than the book. Sebastian Faulks’ writing is wonderful but I liked the film better. The film is consistent with the book, apart from the ending, which is on my opinion more realistic in the film as far as Charlotte is concerned (it helps that it is happier in a way, too). I saw the film before reading the book, so maybe this is why I liked it better.
As far as the book-to-movie adaptation I disliked, well, as I said, as a rule I like books better. To give an example, and a notorious one recently, the Twilight films are horrible, and progressively so. The first one was all right, but than each got worse. I think it is because they are too teenage audience oriented.
