Quotes on Book to Movie Adaptions

Hello everyone! Today I thought that I would pick out some quotes to share with you.

This first quote is for those of you who enjoy both books and their movie adaptions.

“Books and movies are like apples and oranges. They both are fruit, but taste completely different.”

~ Stephen King

The movie adaption may be different from the book, and in some instances they are vastly different, but if taken as a separate entity, it can still be enjoyed.

However, some adaptions are appalling, and this is for those of you who generally do not like movie adaptions being made of your favorite books.

“Having your book turned into a movie is like seeing your oxen turned into bouillon cubes.”

~ John LeCarre

Sometimes, movies are just the watered down essence of a book’s story.

What do you think of book to movie adaptions?


I have a giveaway running! Its part of the Books to Movies Giveaway Hop, and I’m giving away a copy of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ by John Green (novel form!). Enter here!
