I don't think movies should "improve" on a book but they do need to do the book justice. In my mind, a few examples of this are the movies:

"The Lover" (1992, with Jane March as the young Marguerite Duras) "Jane Eyre" (2006, with Ruth Wilson as Jane), "Pride And Prejudice" (1995,A&E, with Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet).

Margo's Pick

  • Josh Bazell: Beat the Reaper: A Novel

    Josh Bazell: Beat the Reaper: A Novel
    Bazell worked in a hospital, which explains all his medical knowledge, but how does he know so much about the mob and how did he get so funny? This novel is hilarious.

Ellen's Pick

  • Jessica Francis Kane: THE REPORT
    Kudos to Kane for this novel based on a real tragedy, when 173 Brits were crushed to death while seeking shelter from an air raid during WWII. She reimagines the event through the investigation that followed and the man who handled it, offering food for thought on unintended consequences and how officials can and do recalibrate the evidence. The book is a Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers pick.
