12 Brilliant Novels That Were Adapted Into Great Films

Read the book, watch the movie, then read the book again.

We recently asked members of the BookishBuzz Community to tell us their favorite books that had been adapted into films. Here are some of their suggestions:

1.The Princess Bride by William Goldman

“The fact that the author then wrote the screenplay is probably why both are so good. You don’t miss anything important from the swap, but when you do read the book, the insight you get into the characters and their backstories is amazing and really completes the whole picture.”

2. Room by Emma Donoghue

“I remember thinking the movie was not going to do the book justice, but honestly the movie was done so well. Everything I pictured as I read Room was how it appeared in the movie.”

3.Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

“I was pleased with how relatively faithful Hitchcock was to the book (especially considering the liberties he took with The Birds).”

4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Steven Chbosky

“Steven Chbosky, the author of the book, also wrote the screenplay and directed the film, so it’s no surprise that the film gets the book’s tone perfectly. It’s somehow really sincere and honest with teenage life’s real issues while also being nostalgic, inviting, and somewhat escapist as well. Aside from Harry Potter, this single novel has probably influenced me the most.”

5. Life of Pi by Yann Martel

“The book was amazing, and I thought the movie was so visually stunning! I loved watching people who hadn’t seen the movie react to the shocking twists.”

6. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

“The film represented the book so well, paired with beautiful music and scenery! Also I thought Keira Knightly was a brilliant Anna Karenina. Truly great book and movie.”
