Which big screen versions of our favourite books have managed to preserve their essence, even introducing the original text to new audiences? Alexander Armstrong, presenter of Classic FM's Summer Book Club, has a good idea of the ones that work for him.
A Pulitzer Prize-winning book and an Oscar-winning movie. The film won three Oscars, including Best Screenplay and Best Actor for Gregory Peck’s brilliant portrayal of Atticus Finch. Alexander Armstrong says: "Harper Lee’s debut – and so far only published - novel has sold over 30 million copies and the film is a faithful adaptation of her story. If you’ve not read it before – or if you only have a hazy memory of studying it at school – I’d highly recommend you get yourself a copy or download it to your Kindle as one of your holiday reads."
