This week's Booking Through Thursday question.

1. In your opinion, what is the best translation of a book to a movie?
2. The worst?
3. Had you read the book before seeing the movie, and did that make a difference? (Personally, all other things being equal, I usually prefer whichever I was introduced to first.)

And, by all means, expand this to as long a list as you like. I’m notoriously awful myself at narrowing down to one favorite ANYTHING. So, feel free to list as many “good” or “bad” movie-from-books as you like. (Heaven knows that’s what I’ll be doing….)

To be honest, I am probably the worst person to try and answer these questions, because I watch movies so rarely these days!

I do, however, know that I prefer to read the book before I see the movie!


  1. I prefer books to movies usually, but I do really enjoy watching films and going to the cinema too.

  2. I just got home from seeing a movie made from a book: Harry Potter! So I'm fresh from noticing that some things actually work better on screen while others don't transfer well to a movie.
