For this round, Michelle picked the topic:
What is your favorite book-to-movie adaptation? Why? What's your least favorite and why?
I've mentioned before on this blog that I don't watch movies much any more; there are so many other things I need to do. The last time I saw a movie in the theater was before I became pregnant, and even at home I don't watch movies. (Usually my husband and son do most of the TV watching in our house.) My memory for the relative few book-to-movie adaptations I have seen is therefore a bit rusty. For favorite, I would put The Lord of the Rings for the scenery. Least favorite--I really don't have one. While I'm sure there are movies out there that differ significantly from the book, I can't recall one that I've seen and disliked. Maybe I'm just repressing the memory. ;)
Readers, could you please help me out by telling us your favorite and least favorite book-to-movie adaptations? And please check out Kate's post before mine and Christine's tomorrow. I'm sure both of them will have more to say on this topic.
