A good book can ruin a decent movie

It’s really sad when you see a movie and truly enjoy it, only later to pick up the book the film was based on, love it, and begin despising the movie version you so recently loved.

There are a few exceptions, for example, Devil in a Blue Dress, Roots, and The Color Purple. Those movies translated well to film.

Can you think of any movie adaptations you loved before you read the written version? And, what was it that made you dislike the movie after reading the book?

Hey Mr. Gaston, as a man that likes horror I was curious have you read Charles Chestnutts The Conjure Woman? If you have not its on Manybooks for free. If you have do you consider the work horror? Do you consider yourself a writer in this particular genre?

Hello Mr. Gaston,

My name is Liz Lampkin and I am in the process of writing another self-help book for women regarding relationships, and I am conducting a small case study. I wanted to know if you could answer the following questions. All answers and information will be strictly confidential. The questions are regarding men and commitment:

1.) Why do you think men don't commit to relationships?
2.) Do you think men fear commitment? Why or why not?
3.) Do you think all men desire is sex?
4.) Please list 3-5 reasons why you believe men don't commit to relationships.

I thank you in advance for your assistance, and I look forward to reading your answers.
