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!
There are so many films out there based on books, sometimes we don’t even realise it! I’ve noticed recently that publishers are much more likely to release a film tie-in edition which can only be good for the authors.
I’ll start with the one I dislike the most. I’m generally quite accepting that films and books are completley different media and need to be tackled differently. I never expect a film to be like the book… However, I hated the Keira Knightley Pride & Prejudice! Whoever thought she’d be a good Lizzie?! Mr Darcy was useless and to top it all off the script was a hack job. Bleurgh. I will add that I love, love, love the BBC adaptation. I think TV adaptations are better for books on a whole.
One of my favourite films is based on a novella that I have yet to read and I know perfectly well they are very different. That would be Breakfast at Tiffanys.
Onto the book/film combo I liked best. I think I’ll have to go with Stardust. The book itself is a short children’s story so the film actually manages to flesh out the original rather that strip aspects away.
I thought I’d blog before work today…though now I’m going to be singing Rule The World to myself all day! I’ll be back later to do the hopping.
