Best Book to Film Adaptations

Books. Generally filled with pages that were in turn filled with words arranged in the rough approximation of ideas, these creations were highly regarded by early societies. But after the advent of cinema and television, books were largely regarded as ancient relics with little practical value beyond propping up table legs.

In certain cases, filmmakers could use what is technically referred to as 'movie magic' to convert these dusty tomes into enjoyable cinematic experiences. The 50 most notable results of this occult process are hereafter detailed.
