Books on Writing and Movies Related to Writing
The Preacher’s Wife was a popular movie in the 1980s and is a classic story of good and evil in the world of books and movies. This list includes the best book that inspired the movie. In a few cases, the movie is based on a book in the same genre as the movie. While I’m sure that many of the books mentioned are worthy additions to any library, this is just a simple list of three.
Good Old Boy is a novel by Bret Easton Ellis. It is a story about a poor boy in the streets of Chicago, who thinks he is the son of the original American gangster. The movie uses the first twenty pages or so of the novel. It’s not as interesting as the novel, but it’s entertaining. For those who want a taste of the book, I found the first twenty pages to be interesting. It’s a good place to start if you’re a fan of Ellis’ writing.
Was Six Degrees of Separation an excellent movie or good book? I’d say it is an excellent book with one big problem. It was adapted from a very famous short story written by a famous author. It didn’t work for me. The movie and book are related.
The film’s success is largely dependent on how well Jodie Foster has adapted her character. Although she’s a seasoned actress, the work she did in Silence of the Lambs and Moonstruck doesn’t translate. Even though the book is very famous, it lacks the star power of the film. It is a good movie, but I wish they had done it with more substance. The film is a solid adaptation of the book. It’s well acted and is better than the original story by Stephen King.
Any fiction book is worth reading. But is it worth watching? It depends on what you expect out of a movie. The list doesn’t include any novels that are on a different genre.
