7 Best Book to Movie Adaptations ...

Being a life-long lover of books, nothing bothers me more than seeing a terrible movie based on a book that I loved. It happens all the time, and I can’t stand it. For example, one of my favorite novels of all time is “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” and last year, a movie version was released. I thought it was well cast, and the trailers looked interesting… but the movie was awful, almost nothing like the book! Sometimes, though, the screenplay writers get it right, and the movie is just as marvelous, or nearly as marvelous, as the book. Here are 7 of the best book-to-movie adaptations…

1. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This was an incredible book, and a fantastic movie. It was shot in Sweden, so if you want to watch it in the U.S., you’ll have to deal with the minor inconvenience of subtitles. It follows the book pretty closely, and creates the same suspense as the book. Hollywood is making their own version, starring Daniel Craig, but the Swedish film is going to be very tough to match.
