Sometimes we forget that our favourite films (think Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Jaws) are based on books, simply because the films are so good.

As good as film adaptations can be, nothing beats what your imagination can do with the characters and plot-line of a wonderful novel.

The coming few months will see the release of some big budget book to film re-workings of some exceptional literature.

Before you head to the cinema, we recommend you read this list, fast, before they make their way onto the screen.
