Do you like movies made from books? Which ones do you think have been done well — kept mostly to the plot of the book, etc?
Once upon a time I would have said No! Give me the book any day. There have been some truely awful movies made from books: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, My Sister's Keeper. But lately, I've had a good run of movies made from books. I was really impressed with the adaptation of "Water for Elephants" and "Snow Falling on Cedars" was an absolutely beautiful film (although without having read the book first I'm not sure I would have completely understood what was going on!"). And I'm now hanging out to see "The Help" after loving Kathryn Stockett's book, so all I can say is long may this good thing last!
