Book over Movie Adaption

Is there a book that you prefer over its movie adaption?

I do think there are books out there that are better than their movie productions. One of these is Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand, a true story regarding a prisoner of war.

Re: Favourite Characters

I couldn't agree with you more Marie :) I've always looked up to Hermione as a child and I still do, for her craziness about academics and just being brave. I always enjoy books of female protagonists who are represented with strong character. One series that I always look back on is Vampire Academy...

I have lived in many places, in the USA, regarding my education. I began living in Nebraska, and then began living in Wyoming and/or Colorado for several years. As odd as this may be, I have jumped between Wyoming and Colorado because of my folks' jobs. Now, I am working my way in being a permanent ...

Re: Favourite Characters in Fiction

I guess you can say that this is along the lines of a dystopia genre, in which the author, Richelle Mead , takes her new the YA series, The Glittering Court , and brings in some actual history as a base in creating the storyline. This is a trilogy of the same story, but of each book taking a differe...

I may have been a while since I've read this book, but I remember it like night and day.

Re: What Do Books Mean to You?

As a child, I used to hate reading and it has always been a problem for me to read. I thought of it as a waste of time and I always wanted to focus on my math skills instead. I saw it as hopeless, because of a learning disability I have towards reading comprehension. Now, I read like none other! I p...
