      We don’t agree with her on everything though. For example, although there are examples of stories in which the movie is better than the book (ex. Silence of the Lambs, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), The Princess Bride is not one of them. It is true the movie is amazing, but the book is *even better*.

      • rented life Says:

        No but I agree with the idea. (I don’t think I’ve read Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I can’t imagine it without seeing and hearing it.) I know a few book purists who refuse to think that the movie version has any value. And sometimes the movie is different, but taken on it’s own, is still good, and not devaluing the book.

      • nicoleandmaggie Says:

        It’s not a very good book– Roger Rabbit in that book (technically, “Who censored Roger Rabbit”) is kind of a jerk. It does have some interesting science fiction/fantasy on doppelgangers, but is nowhere near as satisfying an experience.
