What is the difference between the book alive and the movie?
In the book, it is clearly explained that how Canessa and Parrado find help when they reach the green valleys (they see men on the horses on the other side of river). But in the movie, this scene is not shown.

They are a lot, i'll do everything i can think Book: In general things are a lot less friendly Movie: In general things are neutered. Book: Susie is raped and murdered. …We are told and have it described to us by Susie, it's not pleasant. Movie: Susie only killed, it's a lot more tame. Book: Heaven is depicted as a place where you get what you want. However you can't get everything until you "give up desiring certain things". You don't exactly give up the ability to see Earth since Susie can still do it but she still had to move on. However Heaven as a whole is like a town Movie: That period is depicted as an inbetween field with huge fake-looking CGI items based on what you desire. Heaven itself is apparently another place not connected to to the in-between Book: The book covers a lot of time Movie: the movie covers much little time in comparison Book: Mr Harvey dumbs Susie body from the safe very early in the sink hole Movie: He doesn't do it to much later Book: Abigail (Susie's mother) is depicted as being at odds with her life as being a mother limiting her. She eventually has an affair with len Fenerman and then she up and leaves for Vermont and then goes to California to run away and doesn't return until Jack has a heart attack. Movie: Abigail is less open. There is no affair and she just leaves for grief and comes back when Jack is in the hospital, not much depth at all. Book: It is a heart attack Jack has after Buckley lays into him about not moving on that leads his wife back Movie: It's just the cornfield attack that does it Book: Sex is highly present Movie: It's not. Book: Susie experiences lot of sex scenes from her Heaven view. She sees her parents twice within the narration and remembers back to when they would have it on special days he would come home from work. She also witnesses her mother's two flings with Len Fenerman She witnesses her sister lose her virginity at summer camp to her boyfriend and then later in life just before the marriage proposal they have sex in a house. Her best friend Clarissa's sex life is also known to her. Movie: All that is not existence. Book: Mr Harvey leaves town earlier Movie: Mr Harvey leaves town later Book: When Mr Harvey drives back into town the souls of his victims seem to follow (human and animal) from his old house into his car, this is what makes Ruth faint near the end of the story Movie: None of those elements are every expressed Book: Susie uses Ruth's body to have sex with Ray Movie: It's a kiss Book: Ray kissed Susie before she died Movie: Ray didn't ever kiss Susie Book: Ray is a chief suspect at first Movie: Ray is not a suspect. Book: Ray's mother plays an important part, she talks to Jack and gives him the words if she were him she would kill Harvey, she talks to Abigail over things they can relate, she also serves as a character with issues with her husband who has a major disconnect Movie: She passes by in the mall....that's it. Book: Death by icicle is the idea Lindsey, her boyfriend Samuel, Artie and Ruth use to win the perfect murder contest at gifted camp, Susie says it's her choice too, and then Mr Harvey dies from one. Movie: No gifted camp, no Susie ever mentioning an icicle. Book: Mr Harvey kills animals to feed his appetite. Movie: None Book: We learn about Harvey's childhood Movie: Guess what we don't Book: Lindsey gets the evidence form a pad in Harvey's bedroom Movie: It's hidden to make it more dramatic Book: Holiday the dog has a bigger role. He howls at Harvey's house and frequently is seen as a sign of comfort, and reunites with Susie in heaven Movie: Holiwho? Book: Holly is a girl who becomes Susie's roomate in Heaven Movie: Holly is a victim of Mr Harvey Book: Hal Heckler, Samuel's brother exists and becomes a semi important character in the family Movie: Hal isn't shown Book: Buckley shows development and grows angry for his mother leaving Movie: Buckley is less relevant. Book: We grow with Lindsey a lot and so does Susie. She's a lot more relate able character in the book Movie: Same as her brother Lindsey is less relevant Book: Susie seems more carefree Movie: Susie is more emotional Book: Heaven lets you watch on Earth as in be physically in a position and be seen in the form like what most think of as ghost. Jack sees Susie once in the reflection, Lindsey sees her running in front of her at Mr Harvey's house, Buckley spots her under a clock, etc Movie: Susie's in some other dimension apparently where none of that would be possible as she just sees things and everything is reflected in CGI Book: Ruth is explored more, we see her develop her complex feelings. She is considered to be more of a lesbian, her attempts to experiment with Ray don't lead anywhere but this adds to her character Movie: Ruth is limited a lot Book: It's about growing as time goes on and developing the lovely bones that restrengthen the lives of her loved ones so she can move on. Movie: Seriously if i didn't read the book i'd have no clue what the hell the lovely bones are. There's probably more points i can make but i feel i gave enough
In the movie, there is much less narration, and you hear Melinda's thoughts less than you do in the book. At the end of the book, Melinda speaks to Mr. Freeman about her bei…ng raped. In the movie, she tells her mother. In the book, Andy Evans tries to rape Melinda a second time, whereas in the movie he physically assaults her instead. In the book, Melinda hears about Rachel and Andy's breakup happening at prom, whereas in the movie, Rachel breaks up with Andy outside of his car. The film mentions the story taking place somewhere in the Midwest. The novel takes place in Syracuse, Anderson's hometown. In the book, the high school's mascot changes frequently (from Trojans to Blue Devils to Tigers to Wombats to Hornets), whereas in the film, it changes from Trojans to Hornets to Falcons and later to Wombats. In the book she is raped outside on the farmland at the party, in the film she is raped in Andy's car. In the book, when Andy tries to rape Melinda for the second time, she holds a shard of broken glass up to his neck and says "I said no.", but never actually hurt him. In the movie, she uses the glass shard, and throws bleach (or some chemical of that sort) in his eyes. In the book, once Nicole and her friends save her from Andy, Melinda simply leaves. In the movie, after she is hurt by Andy, she is sent to the hospital. In the book, Merryweather High School's colors are gray and purple. In the film, they are blue and red. In the movie, Melinda meets Heather on the bus to school, whereas in the book she meets her in the auditorium.

Well, some scenes were taken out, and some things from scenes in the book, were made into a different scene The book is amazing,More spectacular than the movie..There is a lot… of differences.mainly more added things to the book.Like for example rosalie was meant to be with edward that why propably she is acting jelous of Bella,Alice also has another story Where James told Bella when he attacked her.Also the relationship between edward and Bella is much more fun and intensed than the movie. Another funny thing is that mike newton,Eric and tailer asked Bella to the dance. she refused and told them she cant,but tyler said replied to her saying ok there is still the prom,Where he kept telling all the people he is gonna take Bella to the prom,Edward was jelous then and he told Bella later he was listening to the conversation and he was jelous though Bella and edward wasnt talking right then.And then at the end when Bella was in the car was edward charlie called edward to tell him that tyler is waiting at the house for Bella, he told him ok put him in, he talked to him ironically and told him she is occupied. and she is only for me. :D.....You ought to read the book its really funny and very romantic.Hope i was useful
Sabina is in the film, not the book. In the book series she is introduced in the third book Skeleton Key. Sabina also doesn't go to school with Alex. The character Mr. Crawl…ey had to have a name change to Mr. Crawford, after the real MI6 didn't want the name used. Additionally, Herod Sayle's name is changed to Darrius, and his nationality changed from Lebanese to American. And Alex's fake name is changed from Felix Lester to Kevin Blake. In the scene that takes place at the garbage dump (in the movie, at the beginning), Alex takes out multiple guards with a rope. In the book there is only one guard and Alex kicks him, knocking him out, then leaves. Also, in the movie, Alex escapes the car by ejecting the seat, whereas in the book he escapes through the smashed rear windscreen. The scene when Jack gets attacked by Nadia Vole isn't in the book In the film, Alex has a Nintendo DS as a handheld gadget, but in the book, it is a Game Boy Color In the book, Alex uses the smoke bomb in the Nintendo DS/gameboy to escape the plane controlled by Mr.Grin down to the science museum. In the movie, he uses it to escape the Dozmary Mine. Gadgets including the mind control pen and the parachute backpack were not mentioned in the book In the book, Mr Grin dies because the plane he was controlling crashed into a building site. In the movie, he doesn't die at all, however, rumors say that he was either arrested or killed by Yassen G. offscreen. In the book, Sayle doesn't find out that Kevin Blake (or in the book, Felix Lester) was really Alex Rider until Alex is captured. In the movie, Nadia tells Sayle that Kevin is a spy, whose instructions to Nadia was to kill Alex in his room, which caused Alex to head to the Dozmary Mine. In the book when Alex parachutes through the Glass Roof of the StormBreaker Launch, he already has a weapon, which he uses to shoot the Prime Minister in the Hand. In the film, he is handed it by the Soldiers he trained with Earlier to shoot the Button apart. In the book Alex earns respect from Wolf by pushing him off the plane, but in the film he earns it by freeing them from a guarded locked house The film features an extra chase scene where Sabina helps Alex get to Sayle's building and features a more dramatic fight scene at the end when Sayle corners Alex. Alex (as well as Sabina) are hanging off the edge of the building before Yassen arrives to assassinate Sayle.
Differences between the book "Atonement" and the movie vary from the more in-depth understanding of the characters and point of views in the book that aren't in the movie …to the wry sense of humor that the book possesses and the movie does not. The film deals with emotions of the characters where the book is more internal. Also, the book is wordy and lengthy whereas the movie seems to oppose this in a rebellious sort of way by going in a different type of direction.
To truly answer this question would take more time than anyone should bother with, but I can give the overall differences: Missing from the movie was the character of Patrick… Hockstetter, as well as a few more minor characters, and the history of the monster in the town of Derry. In the movie, Beverly didn't have sex with the boys in the tunnels on their way out after they believed they killed the monster when they were 12 (early). The character of Beverly Marsh in the book was a very tough tomboyish girl who didn't take crap from anyone (except her father). In the movie, she was played by actresses who portrayed her as very meek, both in her 12 year old and adult years.The movie left out the entire part of the book when they were in the "macrospace" and mentally fighting the monster. In the movie this was simply portrayed as them being hypnotized by the monster. In the movie, the 12 year old group never made it to the "lair of it". They met up with Pennywise in the cellars in some random place.No mention of the Turtle in the movie.Many interactions with Henry were left out of the movie. There are so many more differences, but I think I hit on most of the ones that really took away important context from the movie version.
It, of course, depends on which movie you mean, but I'm assuming you mean the 1931 classic. In the movie the monster never speaks. In the book he has a lot to say…. In the movie the monster is burned to death. In the book he leaves 'for the farthest shore.' In the movie Frankenstein's assistant, Fritz (aka Igor), gets an abnormal brian. In the book there is no Igor and no problem with the brain. In the book the doctor's younger brother is killed. In the movie there is no younger brother, only Frankenstein's father the Baron. In the book, Frankenstein's first name was Victor and his friend's name was Henry. In the movie their names are reversed.
The Jungle Book movie was much longer than the book. The movie also had a lot of added details not found in the book.
Movie/Book1. Stanley is skinny/Stanley is overweight 2. Dr. Pendenski/Mr. Pendenski 3. Stanley's father wanted to take the foot odor away/Stanley's father wanted to recycle sn…eakers 4. warden didn't stab armpit with pitchfork/stabbed armpit with pitchfork 5.

No wild dogs attacking Francois and Perrault's camp No Dolly No mountain sled team that join Buck's team in catching the rabbit No Scottish ha…lf-breed No primal dreams No Skeet or Nig No fight in bar between John Thornton and Black Burton For the bet that John Thornton accepted: the money and distance were wrong and it was on mud instead of ice and snow. Buck's fight with moose was not included Quick ending No fight between Buck and wolf pack
father is not in the movie
The most striking difference is the Native Dancer Story. In the play, Drummond tells the story to Cates while they are waiting for the verdict to come in. [In my opinion t…he proper place for it.] In the movie, Drummond tells it to Brady on the porch of the hotel after the first day of testimony. It takes some of he edge off the story and its purpose in the movie is somewhat blunted.
well in the novel Will is illustrated in a dispicable way. Hornby actually makes the reader hate him at the start but in the movie, because of his good looks and humour, we ac…tually like him. Also in the book we think of Fiona as being pretty but in the movie she is actually very ugly and unpresentable.
In the book, Shelly and Miranda have a fight at the basket boys auction. In the movie some names changed like Matt and Mike was Matt and Mark, uncle David was uncle Daniel, Sh…elly Stalls was Sherry stalls. ETC......
The movie had a couple differences than the book. Some of the characters did not appear in the movie as much as they did in the book. In the Movie the Socs were from the South… instead of the West. Ponyboy doesn't smoke as much in the movie as they said so in the book. In the movie, Dallys and Sodapop's hair were brown instead of blonde. During the movies, they sat on chairs and walked home. In the book, they sat on blankets and drove home in a car. In the book, Ponyboy and Johnny sleep in the lot looking at the stars. In the movie, they slept in the woods looking at the stars. When Ponyboy comes home around 2:00am, Darry slaps him across the face. In the movie, Darry pushes Ponyboy and he falls over a chair. When Dally takes them out to eat, Johnny and Ponyboy gobble their food down. In the movie, Johnny drops his burger. In the movie, When Johnny and Darry are in the hospital, Ponyboy doesn't feel very well.
Yes, there are some differences For example, in the book Hooper has an affair with Chief Brody's wife, and he is killed by the shark. Quint's story about the USS Indianapolis …is not in the book. In the book, the shark was not killed by an exploding air tank. In the book, Quint is killed when his foot gets caught on some rope and he is dragged into the water and drowns. He is eaten by the shark in the movie. In the book, the mayor is being blackmailed by he mob to keep the beaches open.
