Writer's Block: Book based

Is there a book you really loved that was subsequently turned into a movie? Did it live up to your expectations? Why or why not?

Two of them come to mind....

1)  The Hitch-hiker's Guide To The Galaxy.  If it isn't my favorite book of all time, it's damn close.  I wasn't expecting much from the movie, because the book fundamentally has no plot.  Instead, there were inside jokes and such.  The movie seemed more like a convention than a movie, the affection for Adams' work came through, so I still had a good time.

2)  Demi Moore's The Scarlet Letter.  Another favorite book of mine, and I just about went nuts watching the movie.  Talk about missing the point....
