“Books and movies are like apples and oranges. They both are fruit, but taste completely different.”
~ Stephen King 

"When books and plays are made into movies, they frequently want to cut out the valleys and just show the peaks."
~ Tracy Letts

"Watching an adaptation of your novel can be a violent experience: seeing your old jokes suddenly thrust at you can be alarming. But I started to enjoy 'Money' very quickly, and then I relaxed."
~ Martin Amis
