Top 5 Tuesday – Books I Liked Better Than the Adaptation

Happy Tuesday, Homo sapiens! Welcome to this week’s Top 5 Tuesday!

Top 5 Tuesday was originally hosted by Shanah at Bionic Bookworm and now found its home with Meeghan at Meeghan Reads.

Books I Liked Better Than the Adaptation

Personally, I always find the books far, far better than their movie or TV adaptations. There are only a very few adaptations that turned out better than the books, very few, like what I’ve included in last week’s Top 5 Tuesday post. Today, let me share with you the top 5 books (among the very many!) that I find far better than their adaptations.

The only thing I liked in the movie was the boy who played as Hassan.

The movie did well but the book was just so cleverly-written!

The movie was okay but really, the book is far better!

I didn’t love the Twilight series that much but I think, it was still better reading than watching the films.

It’s always a delight reading Neil Gaiman’s books so there’s no way I’ll be convinced that the adaptation was better. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Totally agree on The DaVinci Code! They did their best with the movie, but so many intricate bits of the investigation were lost in the translation to screen. It just felt too simplified for me.
