Here’s this week’s question

Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?

This is a tough one. I can’t really think of a lot at the moment, but the first ones that came into my mind were:

1. Warm Bodies (novel by Isaac Marion)
 

The movie was romantic and utterly adorable! The book, though, had a lot of odd elements in it. Although I really enjoyed both, I thought that the movie made some really good changes to the book.

2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower (novel by Stephen Chbosky)
 

I might be judged for this, but I have to say it. I didn’t like the novel at all. In fact, I marked it as DNF on Goodreads. In the movie, I felt so sympathetic for all the characters. In the book, I felt like they were all much too problematic and helpless, to the point that I couldn’t relate to any of them.

3. I Am Number Four (novel by Pittacus Lore)
 

In contrast to the movie being badass, the book was a little bit bland. Four annoyed me to no end, and I didn’t like Sam as much as I did in the movie. The movie made the characters more likable.

    1. A lot of people seemed tho think so. I guess I just wasn’t into Chbosky’s writing style. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I really liked Perks of Being a Wallflower in both formats. I’ve read I am Number Four, but I wasn’t a huge fan of it. I haven’t seen the movie yet. Thanks for following, new follower!

  2. I had to add Perks to my list as I forgot it when I did the post last night, then when I was at work I thought of loads I had forgotten. Sad I didn’t think of Warm Bodies, I did enjoy both movie and book and agree with you, glad the movie left off some of the odder elements of the books – like the zombie wife and kids. My F&FF.
