    Movies from Books

    So many movies are made from books, and most of the time the movie doesn''t compare to the original book.

    I enjoyed to movie "Circle of Friends" (with Minnie Driver), and then I read the book and was BLOWN away! The book was wonderful! Ever since then, I''ve been on the prowl for books that were made into movies (because I love to compare stuff - lol).

    Most recently, I found a slightly used copy of "The Devil Wears Prada" from my local Goodwill. I had seen the movie, which I felt was okay (not fantastic), but still fun. As I started to read, I became hooked from the second page! It was funny, creative, and well written... much more interesting than the movie. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good story.

    So.. anyone else have a book/movie they can recommend?
    Thanks... ENJOY!

    johnny got his gun by dalton trumbo, also directed by him. this is a rare occurrence - but done really well. most of the book takes place inside the main character's head so it would seem hard to translate that to the screen. he pulled it off though.

    The coolest movie based on a book is Godfather. Mario Puzo's book is very awesome too
