Book vs. Movie: Which Will Win?

3min read


很多今年夏天的预期大片也从桑代克出版社大字,包括预测真实是一个可用。下一个。大。事情。如果你还没有看过新该故障在我们的明星trailer, you have been missing out (and probably haven’t checked Facebook or Twitter in a few days). And if you don’t tear up even just a little bit at the trailer, you might not be human. Watch out for that.

Which brings me to the point of my post—not being human, of course, but all of the amazing (and potentially not so amazing) movies that are coming to theaters this year featuring the best of books from nonfiction (The Monuments Men)在反乌托邦幻想最新银纹(暗处,消失的爱人)以两算他们,两阿娇弗林经典。


February saw the release of what may be considered a complete flop of a movie,The Monuments Men(剧本由乔治·克鲁尼自编自导)。其实我读这本书最近在准备我的德国之行,这本书是迷人的,英雄的可能性不大队被控欧洲艺术和文化的二战期间保存的幕后故事。The movie, despite a star-studded cast including Matt Damon and Bill Murray, just couldn’t quite seem to get it off the ground—but this is one book you’ll want to have in multiple copies in your library, as the big budgets had this movie advertised everywhere. Plus the book (as is so often true) is so much better than the movie, and worth a read.

发散rocketed into theaters on March 21, and quite a few teenage girls of my acquaintance have already seen this hit several times. I can’t speak to the movie, since I haven’t seen it—although the reviews look largely positive—but in terms of reluctant readers, this is a fantastic opportunity to get out the large print, which has been shown in studies to specifically appeal to students that might otherwise be intimidated by a title of this length.发散is the first in the trilogy by Veronica Roth, and this is sure to be a hit for years to come—it’s the new饥饿游戏. In my opinion, it’s an even better trilogy.

最后一个书生气十足的释放,直到今天Heaven is For Real, which appeared in theatres April 16. Starring Greg Kinnear and Kelly Reilly, this movie is based on the book of the same name, which follows a a little boy with an extraordinary story to tell about a heavenly experience. This 2010 New York Times best-selling Christian book title is popular with readers of all ages, and it will be sure to experience a huge resurgence in popularity with this movie release.
