Day 15 – Least Favourite Book Adaptation

Insurgent

This was the film that made me give up on the whole Divergent movie series. Which really annoyed me as Insurgent was my favourite book out of the series.

I enjoyed reading Divergent, but Insurgent was by far my favourite. It ramped up the stakes, and I got completely lost and invested in the book. (I wasn’t a fan of the third book though). I was okay with the first Divergent film, and thought that Insurgent would be a fun watch. I was wrong. From Β the first time I saw the trailer, I was just confused. What the hell is that box with all the tubes and such? The whole time I was watching this movie I’m sure I had a perplexed look on my face. They veered miles from the original source material, and I didn’t get lost in the world like I did reading the story.

I mean, this whole series still feels like a copy of the Hunger Games a little, but at least the books were enjoyable and engaging. Can’t say the same about the movie versions.

What’s your least favourite book adaptation?

  1. I didn’t read the books, but I can imagine your disappointment. I hated the film version of The Giver. I told all my students that watching the movie didn’t count and we’ll be reading the book. They all agreed the movie sucks in comparison.
