Booking Through Conversions / From The Review Pile (17)

btt button

Do you find yourself thinking that the books you read would be good on film? Do you wish the things you watched on TV or in the movies were available as book?

I prefer books to movies, anytime. Movie adaptations of books somewhat disappoint me and vice versa. Give me a good old book any day and let me watch a movie unadulterated!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday. The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review. (or any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

The Affair by Lee Child:

Everything starts somewhere. . . .For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A cover up. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover—to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice—and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust one another, Reacher and Deveraux reluctantly join forces. Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission, and turn him into a man to be feared.

I do like reading more, but sometimes I just love to see my favourite heroes and heroines come to life. Thanks for sharing :)

While I love books, I also adore movies. In fact, I'm kind of a movie freak. So here's MY THURSDAY MEMES POST

I love going to the movies, but books into movies they tend to leave a lot out.

I'm pretty sure someone told me recently that the Jack Reacher series by Lee child was going to be adapted for a movie.

I prefer to read a book instead of watching the movie, too. Thanks for stopping by.

Yvonne said...

Books are definitely preferable.

If I love a book I usually like to check out the movie adaptation, just to see if the director or producer's vision is similar to my own.

Of course, sometimes I end up wanting to throw popcorn at the screen. ;)
