Great Books turned into bad movies [View all]

I know I was so looking forward to "Memoirs of a Geisha" when it came out as a movie and well, it was just awful. The actresses they used for the main 3 female roles were all very talented but none of them were Japanese and from what I read both the Japanese and Chinese were upset about that (Japanese - why couldn't they use Japanese actresses, Chinese- how could Chinese actresses be a part of a Japanese movie). And several of the key plotlines were just ruined. But I will say that the cinematography and costumes used were just amazing.

What favorite books of yours were ruined by the movie made.
