Have your teens seen the Hunger Games and Divergent movies, read the books, and are clamoring for more? (Are YOU?) Good news! More movies based on great teen books are due out this summer!  Check out the books from our Central library, any CCLD branch library, or download the library’s ebooks from STARCat to read the books before the movies come out!

Upcoming books to movies this SUMMER:

Fault in our Stars (by John Green) Movie release: June 6, 2014

DJM, teen librarian, says: “I read this in one day, cried buckets, and could not shake off the book for several days. Worth every tear!”

STARCat summary: “Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.”

STARCat link for the book: http://starcat.stls.org/client/en_US/default/search/results/?ln=en_US&q=fault+in+our+stars&rw=0

Loved Fault in our Stars? Want more about teens facing life, death, loss and love? Try:

If I Stay by Gayle Forman (Movie release: August 22, 2014)

STARCat summary:

“While in a coma following an automobile accident that killed her parents and younger brother, seventeen-year-old Mia, a gifted cellist, weighs whether to live with her grief or join her family in death. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family.”

For Award winning, classic, dystopian fiction:

The Giver by Lois Lowry (movie release: August 15, 2014)

DJM, teen librarian: “..another book I could not put down and thus read in one day. Harrowing, and thought provoking. Would YOU choose to remember sorrow and pain? Life is easier without choice or decisions, but is that really living?”

STARCat summary: “Jonas’s world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.”

Which is better…the book or the movie? April 13, 2011

Posted by CCLD in Steele.

Eat, Pray, LoveRecently we created a display, at the Steele Memorial Library, of books that were subsequently made into movies.  Many examples come to mind, including older titles such as “The Maltese Falcon” by Dashiell Hammett (1930) and the film version of the same title which starred Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor (1941). Additionally, there are many contemporary titles such as the memoir “Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia” by Elizabeth Gilbert (2006), adapted to the screen starring Julia Roberts (2010).

In the process of making lists and gathering books and DVDs for this display, we became involved in that age old debate “which is better the book or the movie?”  The popular consensus seems to be that the book is usually better than the movie.  What I’m hearing from this discussion is that the reading process enables the reader to appreciate the written words and engages their imagination.  Greater depth may be created within the written story and the characters can be envisioned with much more detail.

I think everyone has to agree that sometimes a great book can become an even greater movie.  The first title that comes to mind is “Gone With the Wind” by Margaret Mitchell published in 1936.  The movie of 1939, featuring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, became a timeless classic.  There is also  “The Lord of the Rings” by J. R. R. Tolkien, a wonderful fantasy story written between 1937 and 1949, and published in 1954.  These books are the subject of various film versions, but the one that stands out, directed by Peter Jackson, was produced in three parts: “The Fellowship of the Ring (2001),” “The Two Towers (2002),” and “The Return of the King (2003).”  These films definitely bring the story and its intricate fantasy world to life!

Another part of this debate is stories that were better on the big screen than they were in print.  “The Godfather” by Mario Puzo (1969), was made into the film version in 1972, directed by Francis Coppola starring Marlon Brando and Al Pacino.  This film won many awards, including an Academy Award for Best Picture.  This film brought the book and its author greater popularity.

Meanwhile, the debate continues.  What are your thoughts, which do you think is better the book or the movie?

Connie Ogilvie, Librarian
Steele Memorial Library
