Hollywood has gotten lazy, so these days, movie studios either remake movies, produce sequels to blockbusters, or adapt popular books into movies. Of the latter, many of these films don’t do justice to the original material, but a special, rare few actually improve upon the book and the story translates better to the screen. (There is a whole other category of books that were terrible and should not have been turned into movies, but that’s another subject and chart entirely.) So, should you see the movie or read the book? Here’s a short, fairly random list to refer to.
