so I was reading an article today that tried to match the best (and worst) book to movie adaptations using statistics. I don’t hold with “mathematics”, but I wanted to throw my hat in the ring with five of my favourites.
In no particular order, wherein I have both read the book and seen the movies:
- Princess Bride
- The Secret Garden
- Silence of the Lambs
- bonus: Sherlock Holmes (Grenada/Jeremy Brett) (I know it’s TV but in this case it counts)
I would argue that the Twilight movies are objectively better entertainment than the books, but then I didn’t actually like either, so they’re off the list.
Anyway. What are your favourite book-to-movie adaptations?
