  1. I think that, at best, you could say that there are rare exceptions to this rule. Virtually all books are better than their movie counterparts (unless it's a book that was based on a movie).

    The Green Mile has been about the only movie i have seen that has followed the book and included most of the book. A very good read.

    Field of Dreams was a much better movie than the book - "Shoeless Joe" on which it was based.

    Is it true to the book though?

    The Bourne Identity is probably better as a movie then a book but the The Bourne Identity and Supremacy are nothing like the books.

    Gunny I think it means that we're seeing more classes of people based on how they can cope with the evolving information age. Er something like that :lol:

    And if you end up reading the Potter books, you'll find lots of stuff different than the movies (assuming you've seen them).

    Anyone read the "Wheel of Time" series? A friend gave me the 1st book a few years ago, The Eye of the World. It's a long book, and I think it's a very long series (10-15 books?). I guess it's LOTR type fantasy, and he said it was his favorite of that genre.

    Yeah there are a few Wheel of Time books, are they by George R. R. Martin?

    Never read them though.
