From page to screen

This year, thirteen book-to-movie titles received Oscar nominations. In my humble opinion, most often the book’s better–but an Oscar-worthy performance or production can bring a book to life in a wonderful way. So check out these titles, before you hit the theater. Or if you’ve already seen the movie, reading the book might just supply background information missing from the film adaptation.

The adventures of Tintin by Herge
Albert Nobbs by Geroge Moore
The descendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings (book coming soon) 
Extremely loud and incredibly close by Jonathan Safron Foer
The girl with the dragon tattoo by Stieg Larsson
Harry Potter and the deathly hallows by J.K. Rowling
The help by Kathryn Stockett
Hugo (The invention of Hugo Cabret) by Brian Selznick
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Moneyball by Michael Lewis
My week with Marilyn by Colin Clark
Tinker tailor soldier spy by John Le Carre 
War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

See the EarlyWord website for updates on upcoming, in-production, and in-development books-to-movies.
