The Book Is Better

Willing Davidson, “Great Book, Bad Movie: How Hollywood Ruins Novels”:

This isn’t an original complaint: Liking the book better than the movie is a middlebrow rite of passage. And novels are a constant, renewable source of stories for Hollywood, with ready-built brand appeal

While you are right on the money I must disagree with you regarding Fight Club. While the movie is amazing the book was better on so many levels, although I will give you that the reading of the book after the movie probably changed my way of interpreting it.
