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?

Oh, I Capture the Castle was the best I've ever seen. The book captures so well that turmoil of learning about your body and feelings, adolescence in all its mistakes and fear and unexpected joys; the movie is an excellent adaptation.
