Books vs Movies
Are there any movies based on books that you like better than the book?
I just read a book by Alice Sebold called The Lovely Bones. It’s about a 14 year old girl who is murdered, and the story is told from her point of view, as a dead person. Usually when I read I don’t see the story like a movie in my head. But this book I did. And I kept wondering if it was made into a movie what sort of feel it’d have. There are so many directions you could take it—creepy/scary, fanciful/dreamy.
I enjoyed the book—it really drew me in. But I thought the ending was sort of lame.
I just found out it’s been made into a movie, coming out in December. Directed by Peter Jackson, it looks pretty dang awesome.
I’m hoping they change the ending a bit, but I’m guessing they probably won’t. But this might be a case where I like the movie better than the book.
