I am a librarian with a hunger only books can satisfy. There is nothing quite like a book when you need something to inspire, to assist, to ponder, to laugh, and to cry. Tell me what you think about new titles and old, and I'll give you my dish (and share recipes too).
TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that recaps the week's posts and has a different question each week.
This Friday's Question:
Book to Movie: Which book to movie do you feel did the best adaptation? What about the worst?
My Answer: Going with books that I've read and the films based on them that I have seen, I would have to say Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden is one of my favorite and well-done books into film. The story was condensed fairly well and the setting was absolutely beautiful and breath-taking. It is one film I could watch over and again and a book I could read over and again as well.
I can't really think of a bad book turned into film because usually I don't see those that look to be disappointing and cannot measure up to the book (at least in my own opinion). While I could name several that looked as though they couldn't measure up to the story created by the author, I would rather not raise the ire of my readers.
What book to movie is your favorite? How about least favorite?
