Are the Films as Good as the Books Many books have been adapted into films throughout the years Lately though most of the films have not been just adaptations but exact replications of the novel they are being based upon Movies such as the Harry Potter series and the Lord of the Rings trilogy are the two that are getting the most criticism and attention Bringing films like Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone to the big screen present the problem of condensing the novel into a two and a half hour film without losing any elements of the book Although Chris Columbus the producer of Harry Potter does a good job for the most part in doing this he fails the develop the characters the way JR Rowling the author of Harry Potter does in her novel The zoo scene character development and interaction especially between Ron and Harry and Dumbledore and Harry need to be analyzed in order to fairly compare the film to the book This scene and these characters are the ones that differ the most from the novel to the film making the movie not enough like the book but at the same time very much like the book Columbus concentrates too much on the visual effects of the film and did not spend nearly enough time developing the characters that Rowling made readers of all ages identify with and love Many people who read the book before they saw the film would agree with the fact that the films lavish attention to the visual leaves little time for the characters to interact with one another Nel 2 Rowling when she writes her book focuses more on her characters and their interactive dialogue which give the reader insight into their lives allowing the reader to find a character to easily identify with Columbus also elaborates on little details and then leaves many out although this seems like a minor problem
