Film to Paper?

Even though it’s usually a mistake (grin) … do movies made out of books make you want to read the original?

  2. There is a famous Hollywood story about two goats at the MGM backlot. One is eating a script and one is eating a book.
    Goat 1: This script is really good.
    Goat 2: You should try the book.

    I like to read the book before hand, if the book is an adaptation of the movie, I rarely bother to read it.

  3. I owe him the platform for my writing, and to me there is one film/book pairing and one only in which each partner is equally luminous: Harper Lee’s, and Horton Foote’s, To Kill A Mockingbird.

  4. If a book looks good and I haven’t read or bought it yet, and there is a moving coming out, usually get the book and read it faster than I would have. I want to have the book read before I go see the movie.
    Like Beastly, I’m also gonna read the book before the movie. 🙂

  9. The short answer is yes. The long answer is… not much longer.

  10. It depends. I usually try to read the book first so I can create my own pictures in my head. But for some books written several centuries ago like Dickens or Austen, I think that viewing the film actually enhances the reading experience for me.
    I will rarely read a book after seeing the film with current material. For example, I wasn’t finished with the 2nd book in the Millennium series, The Girl Who Played With Fire, when we went to the movie. I didn’t go back and finish the book even though I was well into it prior to viewing.
