This weeks question: Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?

When I first read this question, my initial reaction was no, of course not. But I wanted to think this answer through a little more before I wrote it. I spent a while thinking of books that I have at home that are also movies, and I can honestly say that I don't think the movies were better. For many of the books that I've seen where movies are better, I haven't actually read the book. So although I liked the movie, I can't really compare the two. I'm sure when I see other blogger's FFF posts, I realize that I missed some books/movies. But I'm actually quite happy that I can't recall many movies that were better than the books (: 



What about you? Any movies that were better than the books?!

  1. Hopping through. It is hard to think of movies that are better than books. I often find that I prefer the movie if I watch the movie before I read the book.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I think I prefer movies too if I haven't read the books. I already have characters in mind when I've seen the movie, I know how they act, etc. Then when I read the book, sometimes it just doesn't happen the way that I had seen in the movie. But, that being said, I'm still having a hard time thinking of a particular movie.

  5. I can't think of a single movie that was better than the book if I had read the book and watched the movie. Even in cases where I watched the movie before I read the book..

    Oh well - I guess my big love will continue to be books :) Thanks for stopping by earlier. Have a great weekend.

    1. haha me too! Books will always win with me. There are some movies that I love just as much as the books, but I wouldn't say they were better (:

  7. The book does tend to be better in most cases, books can give more detail and characters can have more depth.

    1. I agree. There's always so much more that can be said in a book. While I do love that movies help me picture the action, scenery, etc. I still think the books are much better.

  8. It took me a while to think of mine, but it is pretty rare for one to be better than the book. Thanks for stopping by mind and following. I'm following back on bloglovin. :)

    1. it's very rare. Many of the ones I saw while cruising through Google were older movies and books that I either haven't heard of, or haven't read/watched, so I can't say for sure if they were really better

  9. I'm glad that you always like the book better than the movie. For me that is not the case. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following you back :)
