10 Movies That Are Better Than Their Respective Books


10 Movies That Are Better Than Their Respective Books

Not everyone is a book person. And I respect that, but me? I would always prefer a book over their movie. There is something about smelling a new book, with its fresh pages and actually drawing a mental picture of the story. But this patience does not come to all. Besides I think we can have a 3 hour affair with the movie than 1 week long process of reading. I enjoy both. But it is a common affair that sometimes the movie is not as upto to the mark as the book, but here are some movies that actually over-shadowed the book.
