Books with Completely Different Movie Endings

Movies always differ greatly from books, but in some cases the differences are so huge they leave you scratching your head. Please add your own examples of things like dead characters living, living characters dying, breakups that should happen but don't, or murders being solved when the killer goes free on the page.

Crystal Land The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks was a good one too

message 4: by Scott (new)

Scott Watchmen doesn't have a different ending in the movie. Something about it is different, but it's essentially the same.


message 5: by Caz (new)

Caz Added .L.A. Confidential, as the movie, while good, had a different character killed off towards the end


message 6: by Hi (new)
