Top Least Faithful Book to Film Adaptations

"Adapting a hit novel into a motion picture is very dicey business. You don't have the same amount of freedom in the studios as you do in front of a computer, typewriter, or pen and paper. You have to take your budget and runtime into consideration and you also have to exclude certain points in the novels that might not be appropriate for the target audience. Now I'm not saying that these movies are necessarily bad. Some of them are good. "
