They say that a movie can’t be better than the book – but these 10 adaptations prove otherwise. These 10 movies prove that it is possible to be better than the book. It’s all a matter of opinion, of course. Unless you didn’t like Mean Girls as much as the book, in which case, we have nothing to say to you.

Unable to convey the depth and emotional strength of Noah and Allie’s relationship, the story remains the same, but has far less impact than the movie. There was no way of knowing what amazing chemistry Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams would have together — but (unfortunately for Sparks), they completely showed up the book. Plus, Ryan Gosling wasn’t in the book, so it automatically loses.
