    1. I agree Martha, there are definitely a handful where the movies eclipse the books. I really enjoyed Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? but Blade Runner is usually classed as the greater work. The other one that stands out to me (again though I enjoyed the book plenty) is Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk.

      1. I agree with you on Fight Club, too. Some books seem to want badly to be moving pictures, not static words. The Man in the High Castle, though, was NOT improved by the Netfllix “version.” 😦

      2. For sure, it’s as if some works get trapped in the wrong form of media. Have to say I really enjoyed Man in the High Castle adaption (think I watched it on Amazon) – I read the book years ago and enjoyed it, but I’d need to read it again to give a fair comparison.

  1. The movie was … fine, in my opinion. I re-read the book the week before I saw it, and the book is far more charming. The movie lacked a lot of the details that I loved about the book.

    1. That reduced detail and narrative, essential to the time limits of a movie, are often one of the hard things for me. I lent my copy of Wrinkle to a friend, but I’ll probably give it a read before I watch the movie.


  2. There is always a risk. The reviewer I listen to on CBC every Friday, didn’t feel it did the story justice, but I always believe you have to watch it for yourself to know for sure!

  3. oh wow, didn’t realize they made a movie out of Wrinkles. I loved that book when I was a kid. I’d read the book after I see the movie though. Books can have more. I’ve noticed most of the time 80%? that if I watch the movie first then read the book right after, I can enjoy the movie and the book. The other way around, I don’t enjoy the movie as much because my imagination is pretty vivid..

    1. interesting observation on the order. I hadn’t thought about it that way, and I’ve noticed the same thing. If the book is an old friend, the movie is rarely as enjoyable, Harry Potter I is an exception. but I often will enjoy a book following the movie. Hidden Figures being the most recent for me of that order.
