Recommend A...... is sponsored by Chick Loves Lit . Every Monday, I just recommend one book that meets the weekly criteria! Hooray!
This week's prompt is recommend a:
Book that was better than the movie
Like this is hard! I have a lot to choose from since, most of the time, the book is better than the movie. However, there is one that I feel very strongly about and it’s because I love the book so, so much and the movie just didn’t evoke the feelings that the book did. So my choice for a book that was way, way better than the movie is…..
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
I love this book so much and the movie just didn't elicit the same feelings as the book. Now, I love Rob and I think he did a great job as Edward, but there were so many key scenes that were a disappointment to me. Meadow scene, anyone? Also, the special effects were just so campy. I would love to see a re-make of this one. But, then again, they might ruin it even more so maybe I'll just keep re-reading Chapter 13 instead.
What about you? Which movie did you think was a bad version of a book you loved? Did you feel the same way about Twilight?
