Highly recommended

The book is excellent. The movie, while good on its own, does not do the book justice. If you want to both read the book and watch the movie, I recommend that you watch the movie before you read the book.

Thanks. I rented the movie recently but haven't read the book yet.

When does a movie ever do the book justice?

A book stimulates the imagination....we each have our own idea
of the scenery and what the characters look like....
It also gives a lot of detail about the characters' thoughts and emotions

Movies stimulate the visual representation of the characters and places.
And there is never enough time for all the details contained in a book.

I remember being SOOOO disappointed when colour TV came along.
Nothing was nearly as vivid and colourful as I had seen it - in my mind's eye

I think the movie "To kill a Mockingbird" was a very good representation of a very wonderful novel.

I thought the Color Purple was a great novel and the movie became one of my favorites. Excellent cast and music. Just loved it.

I think Peter Jackson did a great job with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but then I could be biased.

The Dead Zone by Stephen King translated well on film and I love the series - My favorite Stephen King novel, "The Stand" however was a travesty.

I'll watch a movie if I've read the book. I won't read the book if I've seen the movie, unless it's non-fiction.

Non-fiction movie or book?

The Devil Wears Prada was the funniest book I ever read and maybe the not-so-funniest movie, even with my favorite actress.
