What’s your favorite Book to Movie adaptation?

One of my favorite books that’s now a successful TV series is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.  And of course, Jamie Fraser is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends!

I actually met Ms. Gabaldon in 1998 at the Scottish Highland Festival in San Diego where I was supposed to interview her for a Celtic website and I got lost along the way!  But I still made it to the festival and she graced me with a photo with her to prove that I was there though we weren’t able to do the interview because she had a long line of readers waiting to buy her books.

For this blog hop, I’m giving away an ebook copy of Outlander to one lucky winner!  Just follow the link to the Rafflecopter to enter, and good luck!

I’ll pick the winner 48 hours after the giveaway ends.

    1. I think I know what scene you’re talking about. I wiped it out of my memory it was so awful and kept on but finally stopped with the fourth book. What a way to destroy any idea of a hero… I’m still smh with that so many years later.

      1. I couldn’t get past the third book, either. I thought I was the only one.

        I have to ignore “that” scene, too. It’s why I haven’t watched the series. I could barely cope with it in book form much less onscreen.

        I will say that I absolutely LOVE books 1-3 minus “that” scene, though.

      2. Exactly! I practice selective amnesia when it comes to Jamie and Claire but I just can’t watch the series. I saw the first episode but prefer to keep it all in my imagination.

  1. For some weird reason, when you ask that I can only think of all the adaptations I’ve hated! Wait, I just thought of one! I love love love the movie Simon Birch. Years after I saw it I read the book it was based on A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. I hated the book like I’ve only hated one other book in my life, lol, wait for it….The Princess Bride. Yes, I hated that book but love the movie.

    1. I have the Princess Bride but haven’t read it. I’ll be seeing the characters throughout the book if I read it. Maybe one day I will! I’ve yet to watch Simon Birch though. How are you?????
