Here are the 10 worst book to movie adaptations of all time, that disappointed the readers, the movie-watchers, and sometimes the authors themselves.
One of the first young-adult vampire novel series, Twilight was published in 2005 and was written by Stephanie Meyer.
While the first book begins with Percy only being 12 years old, the movies aged him, and all the characters up to their late teens.
The Giver, written by Lois Lowry, is a dystopia book for middle school students that was adapted into a film.
The Mortal Instruments is a six-part young-adult fantasy series written by Cassandra Clare, with City of Bones being the first book in this series.
Paper Towns is a John Green coming-of-age novel published in 2008, which was then adapted into a movie in the year 2015.
The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth is practically The Hunger Games’s younger sister that is yet to grow up.
The Girl On The Train is a mystery/thriller novel by Paula Hawkins that was adapted into a movie starring Emily Blunt.
This was primarily the reason behind why the adaptations were so bad, as they stretched the plot, added unnecessary details, etc.
The Maze Runner movies were good if viewed as individual movies and not as a book adaptation. The movies took away a lot of the growth and development of the characters.
Another young-adult vampire book series, The Vampire Academy was written by Richelle Mead. The series was adapted into a movie in the year 2014.
