7 Books That Are Way Better than Their Movie ...


Confession: I’m a purist when it comes to books and am very picky when it comes to on-screen adaptations of popular and well-loved works of fiction. I watch these films with the critical eye of a book lover and am constantly comparing details from the book to those on the big screen. And these are 7 books that I feel have not been done justice with. They’re so much better than their movies!

1. Pride & Prejudice

One of my favorite books of all time, the 2005 movie of the same name does NO justice to it at all. None. Sure, it may be a watchable movie and if you’ve not read the book you would even enjoy it. However, if you get a chance, read the original novel by Jane Austen and you’ll find so much more depth to the characters and story.

[Note: I’m not including the 1994 TV mini-series here because that wouldn’t technically qualify as a movie. But that is one awesome adaptation of the book.]
