I think a lot of readers have the same reaction process when they find out that one of their favorite books will be turned into a movie. First there is the joy and then comes the “I wonder how they’re going to change it” worries. After all there are so many ways an adaptation can go wrong.
Whether it’s cutting out your favorite scenes, veering away from the original plot, unconventional casting choices, leaving out minor characters, or a terrible combination of all of those things, some of the changes made during the book-to-movie process are just unforgivable.
So, this is the post where I want to hear everybody share their “the book was better” rants. What changes really bothered you? Was the movie on the whole bad or did it just leave you wanting more? Let me know in the comments!
