June 6 Discussion Question

Today, The Fault in our Stars hits theaters nationwide.  Think about other books that have been adapted to film.  Why is it important to read the book, in addition to seeing the movie?  Why is film not a replacement for reading the book?  Is the book usually better?

    Love the book so far. We loved the hunger games books but were disapointed by the movies. Way to many things were changed, understandably. I guess that’s why I love to read. A lot of little details

      Thanks, Sandy! The details are important, for sure. And there’s just no way to pack them all into a two hour movie, right?

    Books spark the imagination. We inevitably conjure mental images, consciously and unconsciously overlaying interpretations. Sometimes, drawing parallels to our own experiences. Always, creating a richness even the most eloquent movies seem unable to match. Often movies don’t coincide with our imaginings or feel able to capture the complexities and nuances of a book.
