Between the book and movie

I have read a few books which in turn become mega blockbuster. Sometimes the book is so much more fantastic than the movie. Sometimes, the movie is better.

For example, in Memoirs of a Geisha, I couldn't put down the book because it really tugs your heart, make you hold your breath when you are thrown in the life of this little Japanese girl. But the movie is sort of anti-climax.

Then, there is the My Sister's Keeper which are equally good in the book and the show. In fact, I love the stunning cinematography of Sister's Keeper. I cried more in the movie than the book, maybe because the whole emotions was compacted into less than 2 hours while I took a while to finish the book.
