Books as Movies
As I type this I am also watching The Tenth Circle which is a book by Jodi Picolt that I read a few years ago. So far it is sticking pretty well to the book. I have to admit that most times I think the book was much better than the movie. Part of the reason why I have yet to see The Time Traveler's Wife (which Audrey Niffennegger wrote) is that I loved the book and I can't see how it can be portrayed on the screen in quite the same way. It's funny because people always seem to talk about how great it would be if a movie were made of a certain book and then once it does happen it often falls short of our expectations.
