Fantasy books that were _______ than the movies

fantasy books better than movies

The above linked article talks about fantasy books that were made into movies.  Some of the movies actually were better than the book, but some did the books a great disservice.  I loved the movie, The Princess Bride, for example.  The book was not as good.  The book seemed to drag along and never really get anywhere.

Some of these, I saw the movie, but didn’t read the book.  The Wizard of Oz.  The Lord of the Rings.

The article explains each of the movies vs books better, but I agree with the ones that I know.

10 BETTER: THE HOBBIT

WORSE: THE LORD OF THE RINGS

BETTER: ERAGON

WORSE: THE WIZARD OF OZ

BETTER: THE GOLDEN COMPASS

WORSE: THE PRINCESS BRIDE

BETTER: THE LIGHTNING THIEF

WORSE: STARDUST

BETTER: INKHEART

WORSE: FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM
