This may border on heresy for some, but in my opinion the book is not always better than the movie. Here is my list:
- The African Queen - My edition of this book ends poorly. The odd couple who fought together for something that mattered and found love in the film do not accomplish their goal in the book and simply...separate. What a downer. We need heroes and hope.

- Remains of the Day
- The Accidental Tourist
- Out of Africa
