books to filmsWe’ve all heard it before: “Books are always better than the films they’re based on.” The book vs film debate is likely never to be resolved.

But sometimes, every once in awhile, Hollywood gets it right. Today we’re chatting about the best film adaptations based on some of our favorite books.

What do you think, LitStackers? Did we get it right? We want to hear from you.

      Had I had even the smallest amount of free time this week, I would have participated in this post with "Deathly Hallows Part2." Perhaps it's geeky and a bit dorky to say, but I consider that movie to the one of the best I've ever seen and certainly the best movie I've seen in ten years. It was very true to the novel.
