Books Where the Film Was as Good or Better

This is a list of books that I have read and I think that the film is as good or dare I say it better than the original book. Some of these were so true to the book I love the film and the book. Some, I didn't like the book but I have enjoyed the film. The book/film comparison is always contentious.
