Enjoyable Book to Film/TV Adaptations


A while ago, I wrote a post about some disappointing film/TV adaptations of good books. But because I have often enjoyed an adaption, too, and because I am not of the school who claims the book is ALWAYS better than the film/TV series, I thought it only fair to compile a little list where I thought the TV series or film lived up to the book. I won't go so far as to say the former is better than the latter, but you can make up your own mind on that score. Happy reading and watching!
