Everyone loves to dive into a good story full of amazing characters and unpredictable plotlines. To find a good story to get lost in, we usually turn to movies to watch them. However, to one’s surprise, not every good script is an original; some come from books.
When filmmakers and novel writers gather together the two different storytellers bond together to create a greater art- a visual form of the reader’s imagination to life. Readers can become enthralled in the books they are reading, loving every detail and character formation. It’s exciting to hear the book you visualized in your head will be brought to life, making novel-turned-films very popular today.
