Day 19 – Favorite book turned into a movie

I'm not picking Harry Potter, are you surprised?  Probably not.  The movies on their own have been fine, definitely not perfect.  Given the time and imagination constraints, I prefer to just consider the movie and books independently.  

That being said, my favorite book turned into a movie is North & South.  The British-non-civil-war version, there is some confusion there (my own included, when my sis-in-law first loaned us the movie and promised it was great I thought she might be crazy.  I was happily surprised.)  I watched the mini-series-movie a few times in the last year, high praise coming from me since I rarely watch a movie more than once in a short time span (Disney movies excepted).  My second favorite would be Pride and Prejudice (Kiera Knightly edition, I adore the music absolutely), followed by Anne of Green Gables (which I actually enjoy in movie form more than in book form).

I LOVE this movie. We had a marathon movie night at Kelli Jacobsons one night a couple years ago. Sooo good!

Honestly, I usually don't watch movies that have been made from books. They rarely measure up, and I'm usually disappointed! Of the few that I've seen, I have to agree with Anne of Green Gables - I too actually enjoy the movie more than the book!
