The topic of books to film has been a long time debate. I am an advocate of adapting books to screenplays. I have watched many books come to life on the screen that I enjoyed immensely. That being said, there are also books that should be left on the page. I’m not talking about books that have been adapted and botched by the screenwriter and director…though I will get to some of those too. I’m referring to books that would not translate well onto the screen, and should be left for our individual imaginations. Let’s discuss, shall we?
Warning: There will be spoilers for both the books and movies so if you haven’t seen them and want to…look away!
