Crazy-For-Books. This will be my first time participating!
This week's question is: What book to movie adaptation have you most liked? Which have you most disliked?
The book to movie adaptation I have most enjoyed would have to be Pride & Prejudice with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth. I think this adaptation best captured the spirit of the novel and the characters. I also really enjoyed Peter Jackson's adaptation of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. The movies were simply fabulous.
The book to movie adaptation I most disliked is probably The Other Boleyn Girl. While I thought the costuming was incredible, I thought the movie itself was pretty boring in comparison to the novel. I also have to add The Bourne Identity to my dislike list. While I thought the movie was fantastic, just about the only thing it shared in common with the book was the title. For this reason I think it was a poor adaptation.
