30 Day Challenge #16 : Favourite book turned movie

16 Sep

I am one of those annoying people who always watched a movie, and then says, “The book was better.”  So I don’t know that I really have a favourite book turned movie.  Some adaptations are better than others.

cnlgOne movie that really did not disappoint though was The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.  I have mentioned before (repeatedly) what a fan I am of C.S. Lewis, and his Chronicles of Narnia were quite formative for me; both in my early faith and my writing.

Altogether, a movie I would recommend as a companion to the book.
