Goodreads 2019 Update: The Book Was Better Than the Movie

"When these books were adapted for the screen, [the movies] didn't live up to expectations." (Goodreads). I can't say I agree in all cases. How about you?
These are the top 200 books as at 9th November, 2019 (?presumably the voters thought these top-ranking books showed the greatest disparity between the book and the movie).
