Have you ever read a book and really liked it? Then a movie was made from that book, but the movie wasn't as good as the book because the parts with the most detail weren't put on the movie? Personally, I hate when I enjoy a book, or the book is very good, but the movie sucks because they took out favorite parts! I would like to know others opinions on this subject, so please post a comment.

I think this is a great discussion and I completely agree with you. I like that with books you can imagine the characters coming to life and you can create how you read the story. In movies they leave out good parts, don't go in to detail, and sometimes get the wrong actors to play certain characters!
I'm do glad I'm not the only one who has a problem with the screenwriters' version of some movies that were books first. I agree with you 100%. What are some examples of movies that are like that? The last three Harry Potter movies, Twilight, Eclispe, and Thier Eyes Were Watching God are, in my opinion, some good examples.

This has happened to me a couple of times!  The worst was with the Notebook! The movie is great, but the book is waaay better! So now I have decided to watch movies first, and then read the books.
Yes, I have to agree as well! Well it is not always the case but sure happens more than not. For me personally, Wuthering Heights, a classic novel written by Emily Bronte has had more than one film adaptation and I can't say they both beat the novel.
I havent read or seen the Notebook or Wuthering Heights, but that wasn't willingly. I'll check those out and have an opinion. :D

 i feel the same way! i especially hate it when they add new parts that change the whole plot.

I had this huge problem with Harry Potter when I was younger with the movies leaving out pretty important detail from the book in the movies but I kind of understand why they did it now it's pretty expensive to produce a movie. Although some of the detail would have added some more depth to the story the movies did well with out it. I haven't been able to force myself to watch the last movie since it signals the end of my childhood. ^_^ I've heard of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies I admit though that I'm not sure I would like it. I love all of Jane Austen's books but Pride and Prejudice was the first one I fell in love with I was never inclined to read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies because it's an adaption. Perhaps I could give it try but I would have to convice myself to do it.
