12 Book Adaptations Readers Love
Not all book adaptations are created equal. As readers, we've learned to deal with some seriously misguided disappointments, the kind of flops that give the books they're based on a bad name. ("Don't judge the book by its movie!" we beg our friends as we push our copy into their hesitant hands.)
But gems do exist, and the thrill of seeing a beloved book adapted faithfully is intoxicating. Every medium of storytelling brings something different to the table—and while we're obviously partial to books—we're also big fans of both the small screen and the big screen.
This month we asked you on Facebook and Twitter to tell us your absolute favorite book-to-film or book-to-TV adaptation. Your top answers are below!
