What are books which are made into movies or a TV series that are close to the REAL story?
I've noticed a lot of book buffs who, after watching the movie of the book they've read and liked, claim it to be a "failure" What do you think makes it such?
It is like that because once Hollywood gets hold of stories, horns start sprouting from the directors's heads and they start to fall prey to their aspiring author feelings. The overall effect is inferior stage plays.
To be fair, stories have to be condensed, but not too much, the narritive description in books is visual in films, it is fooling around with dialogue and story that causes the problem.
Yes the corruption of the entertainment industry does destroy the story of many great books turned cinema... but some good ones that didn't murder the book include Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Stand By Me and the Outsiders. All of which are great books and movies.
The movie "Breakfast at Tiffinys" is almost word for word the book. Even the dyalogue it the same

Why are all books being changed into movies? Is this ruining the book or popularizing them?Some movies do justice to the book like "The Lovely Bones," but I feel like EVERY book is being made into a movie these days.

Would you rather read the book, see the movie, or do both? And which would you do first?With so many books made into movies, it seems that people either read the book or go see the movie. Some also do both. I would prefer to read the book first and then see the movie.
