Do you mean a movie about books, or adapted from a book?
I would assume adapted
The Harry Potter Series
The Book Thief and The Hunger Games
Oh yeah, the Hunger Games translated to film in every spectacular way.
Ready player one
The Help or Where The Heart Is
The great gatsby
The Help. The Green Mile.
I read Cloud Atlas but never did see the movie. Thanks for the reminder.
I thought they’d done a really good job of such an intricately plotted story and visually it’s amazing. Well worth checking out
@Pete, I’ll do that. I read the book years ago so the movie can surprise me now. I hate reading a book and seeing the film too soon. I only make comparisons then and the book always wins.
The book is so multi -layered and complex I’m really impressed with how they translated it, with total respect for the text, funny, exciting and poignant. I think the film and book are both masterpieces myself
@Pete, have you read any of his other books? I have a copy of Slade House but have yet to read it.
I’ve read everything he’s published. Eagerly awaiting his next novel planned for release next year. Slade House is a good little creepy novella. My favourites are The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks
@Pete, I might also have the bone clocks. I’ll have to check.
It almost should t work but I really enjoyed it, great fun, and without giving too much away, batshit crazy!
@Pete, now my curiosity is piqued. I want to go downstairs and check my bookcases right now — if only I wasn’t stung by a bee three times on the top of my foot today. I need to rest it — lol.
Ouch, that’s bad luck
@Pete you forget how bad it hurts until you’re stung again. Oh my gawd, it’s awful.
That’ll teach you to be stealing honey!
@Pete, Lol. I was only letting the dog out. Not my best morning.
Good excuse to put your feet up though. Hope you’ve got a good book close to hand!
@Pete, 20 Pages from finishing one and I definitely have my excuse to finish now. lol.
@Pete, I do have bone clocks. It’s a thick one. You think I should read that one before Slade House?
Actually I would probably recommend reading The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet first, then Bone Clocks, then Slade House. Not essential, a not strictly sequels but tgere are some themes and common characters that run through them
@Pete, good to know. Thank you
There are unifying themes running through all his books in fact and we see characters and events cropping up again and again, like a characterin Black Swan Green listening to the Cloud Atlas Sextet. If interconnections and the way our acts impact on eachother and across time is one of the central themes of Cloud Atlas then that’s probably also true of all of his books together, he’s described his collected work as an Uber-book before. I really think he’s one of our most fascinating contemporary authors
@Pete, that is pretty fascinating. Of course, Stephen King does the same thing but he’s much more prolific.
Yes, that’s true. I love Somni’s quote from Cloud Atlas “Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others. Past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
@Pete, agreed. That’s very beautiful.

i liked the Odd Thomas movie better then the book but the series is overall very good. Harry Potter is always a good choice. Zoo (tv series) is completely different from the book but excellent along with his Kiss the Girls movie/book.
I like Odd Thomas too! So sad about the main actor though.
