Movies Based on Books
Autumn is fianlly here! Which means the book nerds are secretly happy, finally there is a reason to stay inside and read a good book!
But sometimes you just want to see a good movie. So what better way than to combine the love of books with the movie night?
Several books have become movies, some books more than once. And to be honest, many times you get disappointed by the movie. But that doesn't mean there aren't great movies out there.
These are some of the books that we have in the library that have become movies:
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
- Låt den rätte komma in by Johan Ajvide Lindquist
- Several books by Jane Austen
- A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
- The Great Gatsby (2013) and The Great Gatsby (1974) by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- Heart of Darkness (Apocalypse Now) by Joseph Conrad
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
- The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
- Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
- The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
- Mig äger ingen by Åsa Linderborg
- Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
- Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
And finally someone made a compilation of the 10 worst book-to-film adaptations. Do you agree?
