I rarely find a movie I like better than the book it was based on – the movies always have changes I don’t agree with, character representations I don’t like, or parts left out that I felt were important to the point of the story.  That notwithstanding, there are some movies that are based on books, and both versions are good in their own right.

Here is a list of 12 movies that are as good as the books, according to the Huff Post.  After looking at the list, I challenge you to read the book and view the movie version, then decide for yourself: is the book always better?

Happy reading and viewing!
