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:

  1. Matilda
  2. Princess Bride
  3. The Secret Garden
  4. Silence of the Lambs
  5. 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?
