It’s Oscar Time! Among all the gold and glitter are statuettes in various categories whose films were created from books. Some examples: THE HELP (Stockett); WAR HORSE (Monpurgo); EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE (Safran Foer); TINKER, TAILOR, SOLIDER, SPY (Le Carre); MONEYBALL (Lewis); and THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATOO (Larsson) – English version. I always prefer reading the book before seeing the movie. Try it!
