- Books Versus Their Movie Versions
One one Book and Movie were equals...
I might have said that the book is ALWAYS better but my book club just read To Kill a Mockingbird. I have never seen a movie that was truer to a book than that one!
They are so close that they are equally spectacular and their meaning is identical.
Gregory Peck will always be Atticus Finch. A better casting choice I have never witnessed.
A real bomb of an expectation came after I read Michael Crighton's "Congo" then saw the movie...that movie was the most terrible experience.
I recommend the books over movies 99 times out of 100.
