Every now and again, don't you watch a great film and then find out it was adapted from a book?
You immediately rush out and get a copy of the book to fill in the gaps, answer niggling questions or find out how much is the Hollywood factor. Sometimes it is the other way round, you read the book and then go and see the movie. Many people become polarised on one side of the Books vs Movies debate, other times you are able to appreciate both for what they are. Here are a few books that have been turned into movies, let us know what you think about them and other titles that might tickle your fancy.
The Color Purple
Imitation of Life
Romeo and Juliet
