Chick Lit Flicks: Fave Big-Screen Adaptations

The Notebook

I don’t know what’s more beloved when it comes to The Notebook—the book or the movie? Nicholas Spark’s ’96 bestselling novel lent itself well to the uber romantic, rain-soaked ’04 film adaptation starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. As soul mates Noah Calhoun and Allie Nelson, the duo had a believable passion between them—hmm, wonder if it had anything to do with the fact that they were totally shacking up off set? Sure, at times both book and film veered into overly schmaltzy territories, but sometimes us ladies just need that kind of thing!

    Nice. The book is usually better.

    I usually prefer action movies to chick flicks– and a good horror novel or mystery to chick lit– but I have to admit, a couple of these are on my ‘must watch’ list even so… (I don’t think I could sit through The Notebook, though)

    I have read four of these books but that was many years ago. These days time to just lounge and read a good book seems like a vague memory. I also agree with Oohlalovie the Notebook was better in the movie form then the book. But Gone with the Wind and Pride and Prejudice were better in written form for me.

    I have seen all the movies but I have only read about 2 books. I like that the movie adaptation stays somewhat with the story line

    The movie The Notebook was better than the book. The book was written like it was for a 5th grader. Sparks is a great romance writer, but the movies always turn out better than his books.
