Summer (blockbuster) reading

5 examples of The book was better'

However, there are plenty of books out there that may never catch your attention because you think you already know the story.

You saw the movie, you see.

But sometimes, seeing the movie is no indication of the quality of the book. Sometimes, the story gets altered or rewritten or occasionally outright ignored. Occasionally, the only resemblance between the two will be a title.

Here are five books that warrant your attention this summer, along with the five movie versions of said books that are for whatever reason inferior. This is not to say that these films are all bad though many of them certainly are that so much as that the books that inspired them are so very much better.
