Books to Movies

Every time someone reads a book then watches the movie, they say that the book was better. For one thing, I don’t understand why the movie people feel the need to change a story, like in the ending of My Sister’s Keeper. Why? Really, that books ending was amazing and you guys just slaughtered it. Even for the movies that are fairly close to the story line, people still prefer the books. I can’t quite put my finger on why though. I also like books better than the movies but I can place why into my head. Why is it that you guys like the book better than the movie?


  1. But, Mrs Andersen!
    Then Abigail Breslin would not have had more screen time! She needs that so Steven Spielberg will notice her and make another robot movie where a little girl saves the world with a special, secret paperclip*!!!!

    Also, they could not have done the AAAAAAAmazing shot at the end with the mountains and the lake with Cameron Diaz and family all running around having a good time.

    *Folks, I totally made that up.

  2. The books have more detail, and more story. Even movies that stay close to the book are still sometimes missing small details. Plus, sometimes you are reading directly from a characters thoughts, you know what they are thinking and feeling like you never could by watching the movie.

I love comments!
