Hello and a happy Feature§&Follow friday everyone!
Today's question is:
What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?
I had to think about this for a while, because on the one hand I'd be nervous about most books as I am complaining about book-to-movie adaptions all the time. Then again I think it was Meg Cabot who said (in her books, on her blog... I don't remember) that you shouldn't compare the movies to the books but simply enjoy them for what they are and also judge them apart from the book. I think her reason for that was that books and movies are two completely different mediums that can't be compared. This did sound reasonable to me.
Anyway, it is especially the Meg Cabot books that I wouldn't want to see as movies. And that's despite the fact that I'm a huge Anne Hathaway fan since the movie version of "The Princess Diaries". I read Meg Cabot's books mostly for the witty humour and the sarcastic elements in them and that's my problem with the Princess Diaries movies and also with probably every movie based on the books Meg Cabot wrote - I would miss that voice just too much to enjoy the story without it...if that makes any sense :)
Hope you have a not-too-dangerous Friday 13th!
