[Solved] The difference between books and films

Hi all

I found out today that in the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang book (incidently written by Ian Fleming) there was no child catcher, or big castle where the Baron lived. When Roald Dahl wrote the screen play he introduced all of these things.

Got me thinking what other books have changed massively when they became films?

Maybe it was Ian Fleming's books inviting change - I'm pretty sure the James Bond books were nothing like the films.

Generally though, I tend not to see films of books I've read, or vice versa - that way I'm not making comparisons 🙂

Pretty good advice

I remember reading John Grisham's The Firm - thought it was one of the best books I have read yet was massively disappointed with the film

One of my favourite books is 'The Bone Collector' by Jeffrey Deaver. It's an excellent read and introduces the long-running character of Lincoln Rhyme, who is a ginger-haired, pasty white paraplegic detective. In the film of the same name he is played by Denzel Washington..... 😯
