Actual Book vs Movie Version

I like lists. What overly organized person doesn't like lists? When I don't have a list of chores to do or a shopping list to make, I like to think up informative lists to share. Here's probably one of many that will sit on this site.
Book vs Movie - which is better?
(in no particular order)
  1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (J. R. R. Tolkien) - BOOKS
  2. The Shipping News (Annie Proulx) - BOOK
  3. Catch - 22 (Joseph Heller) - MOVIE
  4. The Lost World (Michael Crichton) - BOOK
  5. A Prayer for Owen Meany (John Irving,) movie title: Simon Birch - BOOK
  6. In Her Shoes (Jennifer Weiner) - MOVIE
  7. Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (Tom Robbins) - BOOK
  8. Practical Magic (Alice Hoffman) - MOVIE
  9. Vanity Fair (William Thackery,) 2004 movie version - BOOK
  10. Dracula (Bram Stoker,) 1992 movie version - BOOK
  11. Running with Scissors (Augusten Burroughs) - MOVIE


  1. I propose The Running Man (Richard Kimball aka Steven King) - MOVIE

  2. I never read that book, but the movie is a must-see.
