    An account of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman's attempt to adapt Susan Orlean's non-fiction book The Orchid Thief, which is the story of John Laroche, a plant dealer who clones rare orchids then sells them to collectors. We see the action of the book as we see Kaufman struggle to adapt it into a movie.   Book-To-Film Adaptation Tips Douglas Preston, who frequently collaborates with Lincoln Child (they've penned 11 novels together and are best known for their Agent Pendergast series), recently shared his thoughts on adaptations, specifically the movie adaptation of Author: John Folsom.

      There have been two adaptations of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies: a black-and-white British version made in and a second, American version made in The former remains the definitive adaptation of the book, and part of that is its relative adherence to Golding’s : Matt Kraus.   The first chapter of Jenny Han’s novel trilogy debuted on Netflix back in , and fans of the book adaptation are in luck, because the second in the series arrives on the streaming platform in Author: Sam Ramsden.

Which big screen versions of our favourite books have managed to preserve their essence, even introducing the original text to new audiences. Alexander Armstrong, presenter of Classic FM's Summer Book Club, has a good idea of the ones that work for him.

Sometimes the adaptations works best as a one-off miniseries, like "Brideshead Revisited" and "The Handmaid's Tale." And sometimes it works best as a long-running show, like "Sex and the City." We also omitted shows based on plays published as books — sorry, "Angels in America.".

Here are a few brilliant graphic novel adaptations of classic books. After all, there's a reason that these books became classics in the first place.

Something about the stories they tell Author: Charlotte Ahlin. Book adaptations to the big screen have always been some of the most interesting ways to make good films.

And probably the most rewarding as well. Though we believe that a book it’s always better than the movie, that doesn’t mean that book-to-film adaptations aren’t good. The first adaptation of Charles Portis’s novel starred John Wayne and while noted for its excellence as a film, it certainly toned down the violent imagery and brutality in the book.

The Coen brothers pay homage to the book by retaining much of the story; framing it squarely in the eyes of the original narrator Mattie Ross and ending the film like the book, 25 years after the events : Marc Chacksfield.

This has made many book lovers around the world very angry, almost to the point that they feel like the movie is an insult to the book and their love of the book.

With that in mind, many movie adaptations are well made and convey the same story as the book, with the added visual element to get a whole new experience from the story. It's accepted wisdom that, for the most part, the book is better than the movie—and that's even more true when said book is a minted literary classic.

Still, for every page-to-screen adaptation that falls flat (sorry, The Hobbit), there's one that elevates and transforms the beloved source material into a cinematic masterpiece (see: The Lord of the Rings trilogy).

Despite the near-constant adaptation of books made into movies, “the book was better” seems like a popular refrain among readers. And while some adaptations have actually been better than the books (Jaws, Die Hard), it’s a rare adaptation that can beat the source material.

A pretty incredible book-to-TV adaptation. Though this HBO series didn't follow Gillian Flynn's debut novel word-for-word, the adaptation had its own "elegant, devious design" and a "heroic" main character (Amy Adams) that kept the plot as thrilling, scarring, and jarring as it was originally, if not more so, The New Yorker : Morgan Greenwald.
