Are the books better than the movie? Part One   1 comment

Anne of Green Gables, Little House on the Prairie, LOTR. These are just a few books that have been turned into motion pictures.  I watched the Anne of Green Gables films and while I enjoyed all 3 my sister was hated the third for it was nothing like the book. In fact it was a completely different story.  However she did like the previous two films over the books. 

LOTR: Probably going to get a lot of noise on this but after reading the books and watching the films I have to say that the films were tons better than the book series. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy LOTR very much. But as for being a favorite of mine they’re not. A couple of reasons: One was the singing. I don’t have a problem with poetry and riddles so long as they are like prophecies to something. I couldn’t stand all the singing! (Might also mention I don’t care for musicals) Second, maybe it was me but I felt something was lost after the first two books. I have to say that the first book of LOTR was my favorite of the series next to the Hobbit.

Little House on the Prairie:

Now with that one, while I’m okay with the books they are not my favorites. I probably would never have bothered with them if it wasn’t for my mother reading it to my sister and I before we went to sleep (at my sister’s insistence.) Now the tv series was good. I have to be honest and say that I really enjoyed them more than the books. 

So are books better than their film counterparts? Some I’d say yes others no. But I’ll have to talk more on this subject later!

Your grace is enough...

"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
