In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!
This week’s question is:
“What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?”
I generally avoid adaptations as most of them do a very good job of mangling my favourite books. Most of the time they change the plots and basically butcher the story.
The 1995 BBC production of Pride and Prejudice is one of the very few exceptions. It stayed true to one of my favourite reads of all time. Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth were perfect for their respective roles.
Dislike would include almost every adaptation I have ever had the misfortune of seeing. Most of the Agatha Christie mystery adaptations fall in to this category. Putting in characters form different books in to one book, adding altogether new characters, changing plot lines, completely changing the ending – you name it they’ve done it.
