And they lived disappointedly ever after

Last week I went to the cinema to watch “Inferno“, a film adaptation from one of Dan Brown’s books, and while I did enjoy the film I have to say I was disappointed with the ending. dan brown.jpg

Now, I won’t go into too much detail (Nobody likes spoilers, am I right?) but if you’ve read the book already then beware, the film was only loosely based on the book. So be ready for quite a few changes.

The director of the film even tried to explain why he decided to make those changes (here), but Dan Brown’s fans are NOT a happy bunch after reading his interview. Some people got rather upset actually. You can see some fan reactions here.

Personally, if I hadn’t read the book before watching the film I’d probably enjoy the film a lot more. But being the bookworm that I am, I knew what was supposed to happen in the story, and that kind of spoiled it for me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such major changes in a book-to-film adaptation. Like, ever!

So my question for you today is: What has been your biggest book-to-film adaptation disappointment so far?

    That’s such a disappointment. I have read all four books from The Robert Langdon Series but guess what I still haven’t seen any of its movie adaptations and I don’t think I’ll be seeing them soon. It’s really sad when the movie goes the different direction from the book. 😓😄

    As a massive Dan Brown fan, I was extremely disappointed with the change of ending. To people who haven’t read Inferno, they would have just thought there was a plague, then they managed to contain it. You’d have thought Dan would have tried to keep the true message in the movie.
