8. The Grapes of Wrath.

The book was well written, an American classic. The subject matter, however, was not movie conducive. Wanna know what life was like during the Great Depression? Watch a documentary. Ken Burns does an amazing series on it.

9. 50 Shades of Gray.

Turns out really bad books make really bad movies. And there’s still 2 more books to go. Yippee!

10. The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.

Great books turned into a not so great movie. This one definitely needed to be left to the imagination.

This is simply my opinion, and not everyone will agree. Let us know which books you think should have stayed on the pages instead of making their way to the big screen!
