We have all heard of famous books and their more famous movie adaptations like J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter, Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist or Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice. However, this list is about 5 of my favorite books whose movie adaptations you might not have come across.

  1. The Kite Runner- Khaled Hosseini

the-kite-runner-movie

First on my list is Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner that was first published in 2003. Set in Afghanistan, the book deals with the conflicts that marked the country the most, in a period fixed between the fall of the monarchy and the emergence of the Taliban regime. It tells a fictional story about family, friendship and exodus in a war torn Afghanistan. After its publication, the book became a New York Times Bestseller for two years.

In 2007, it was adapted to a movie of the same name. Directed by Marc Forster, the film received generally good reviews: it has a 66% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a 7.6 rating on IMDB and Roger Ebert from the Chicago Sun-Times gave it a 4 over 4 rating. However, even though I liked the casting, I thought that the film lacked a lot of important material that was in the book. I felt that the film failed to meet my expectations and I was somehow disappointed.

 

  1. Dangerous Liaisons-  Pierre Choderlos de Laclos

Dangerous-Liaisons-1988

The Second Book on my list is Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ Dangerous Liaisons (Or Les Liaisons Dangereuses) that was first published in 1782. This epistolary novel consists of a list of letter exchanged between the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, two French libertines who use seduction as a weapon to manipulate others. Set during the Ancien Régime, this book is believed to be the source of the saying “revenge is a dish best served cold”.

Although this novel was adapted into numerous films and plays, my favorite adaptation is the 1988 American film directed by Stephen Frears and starring John Malkovich, Michelle Pfeiffer and Glenn Close. This film was critically acclaimed and was nominated for seven academy awards of which it won three. This film is one of my favorite adaptations, as its screenplay is perfect and the acting especially Glenn Close’s is impeccable.

 

  1. To Kill a Mockingbird- Harper Lee

Third on my list is a classic of American literature. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird was published in 1960 and it won a Pulitzer Prize. This novel deals with racial discrimination and injustice. Set during the great depression in the USA, this book tells the story of Atticus Finch, a lawyer who accepts to defend a black man accused of raping a white woman, and his two kids.

In 1962, To Kill a Mockingbird was adapted into a film by the same name. Directed by Robert Mulligan, the film was released to impressively positive reviews and wide critical acclaim. It was nominated for eight Academy awards of which it won three and it is considered to be one of the greatest American films of all time. This one is definitely a must watch. The roles as well as the storyline are perfectly adapted and if you’re a fan of the book you won’t be disappointed.

 

  1. Fahrenheit 451- Ray Bradbury

The fourth book on my list is Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 first published in 1953. The plot is set in a futuristic American society where books are illegal and firemen serve to burn books. The title, Fahrenheit 451 refers to the temperature at which books catch fire.  The story is about a fireman, Guy Montag who starts to develop an interest for books after he meets a free-thinking girl named Clarisse who pushes him to question his life and actions.

In 1966, the book was adapted into a film by the same name. Directed by the famous French director Francois Truffaut, the film received mixed reviews upon its release but with time it gained more critical acclaim. Currently, it holds a rating of 81% on Rotting Tomatoes. Personally, the film was very disappointing for me. The acting was not flawless, the Art direction failed to create a credible futuristic aspect and the storyline adaptation could be better.

 

  1. Of Mice and Men- John Steinbeck

of_mice_and_men_ver2Another American literature classic, the last book on my list in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. First published in 1937, it is also set during the great depression period. It tells the story of George and his mentally retarded friend Lennie, two ranch workers with a dream of owning a piece of land, and are constantly moving to search for job opportunities.

In 1992, the book was adapted into an American film by the same name. Directed by Gary Sinise, the film received critical acclaim and competed at the Cannes film festival where it was nominated for the Palme d’Or. This adaptation is very impressive. The acting is perfect and the art direction is remarkable and I highly recommend it.

 

Finally, I am currently reading Daniel Keyes’ Flowers for Algernon which was also adapted in 1968 into an academy award winning movie named Charly. So if you read the book or watched the movie feel free to write your review. And also if you have any comments about the list or any requests don’t hesitate to write them down in the comments.

Nowadays, with the development of technology video games have also developed. Many kids enjoy playing video games while sitting on their couches. They spend their hole time playing, some kids said that its their way of having fun during their spare time. One of the most popular things with children when it comes to computers are video games or computer games. From puzzles to racing, action to sports, strategy to adventure, computer games are possibly the biggest addiction for most children. With companies such as Sony and Microsoft going all out to promote Xbox and Playstation to children worldwide, the allure to these games has only got better. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of video games.

The advantages of video games

These video games not only help in making a child’s brain sharper through mental stimulation, but it also helps relieve it of anxiety or pain. In some cases, games have proved to aid dyslexic kids read better. Since adults also love playing games, it can be a time of bonding between adults and children, increasing the amount of time spent together especially when time spent by parents and children is less nowadays. Since technology is developing, video gamers thought of something more clever to become less lazy, so they created more advanced Virtual Reality games that allow us control characters with our body. This will make gamers more active. So instead of sitting and doing nothing they could run, jump, crouch … and do several things depending on the game such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, Grand Theft Auto. With this new technology gamers won’t stay seated on their couches but they will do fitness exercises while enjoying their favorite game. Moreover they will learn how to survive in many situations due to the games that contain special missions. Omni is a new console engine created by Jan Goetgeluk. The purpose of this console is to let gamers who don’t go out much feel like they are in the game doing some exercises while enjoying gaming, which takes gaming to the next level.

The disadvantages of video games

Although playing video games is fun, we can’t forget that it has many disadvantages. many kids wear glasses because they are spending their free time on video game and sitting close to the TV which causes many eye problems. Moreover, with the variety of games in the store many kids spend their own money for a game that they will enjoy for a short period of time then won’t play it again. This will increase the percentage of consumers in society. Some researches proved that many kids became more aggressive and started bullying others due to the violence in the video games, this is caused by the lack of responsibility taken from their parents. Furthermore many kids are preferring to play war games instead of practicing sports such as soccer or basketball. This will let kids see many horrific scenes. Although creators put on the game some age restrictions, many governments don’t respect the rules and let kids buy games disregarding the age limit. Many games show uncensored scenes such as pornography, nudity, blood, violence and bad language. This will affect the new generation and their behavior.

The Pan European Game Information

The Pan-European Game Information (PEGI) age rating system was established to help European parents make informed decisions about buying computer games. It was launched in spring 2003. It replaced a number of national age rating systems and it is now used throughout most of Europe, in 30 countries (Austria Denmark, Hungary, Latvia, Norway, Slovenia, Belgium, Estonia, Iceland, Lithuania, Poland, Spain, Bulgaria, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Sweden, Cyprus, France, Israel, Malta, Romania, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovak Republic and the United Kingdom). Unfortunately many other countries don’t respect the information labels on the back of a game and therefore parents should be more aware of these informations to control their kids’ behavior.

To conclude, video games are fun to play with in our free time but we should go out more and socialize instead of sitting in front of a machine and talking with some gamers online. Also, it would be a good idea if we sacrificed some of  our time to do sports instead of playing video games. This will also help us avoid eyes problems.
