Book Blog Hop (2)

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jenn at Crazy for Books and it's a way to for book bloggers to connect and check out other blogs.

This week's question is:  What book-to-movie adaptation have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?

I thought that Shutter Island was one of the best book-to-movie adaptations I have ever seen.  I was so surprised by how closely the movie followed the book.  I also really like A Time to Kill; this is one of my favorite movies and even though it is different from the book, I think that they did great job of staying true to the story and the book's main points.

I absolutely hated movie adaptation of The Horse Whisperer.  I read this book in high school and my mom and I loved it.  We were so excited for the movie but were so very disappointed in it.  It was almost 3 hours and they completely changed the whole end of the story.

  2. Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

    I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.

  4. Oooh, I loved A TIME TO KILL. I think it's the only movie where Matthew McConaugh (however you spell it) has had to stretch himself as an actor. He did an amazing job, too.

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!
