Although the movie is based off the book, Call of the Wild as a book is very different from the movie. There are multiple reasons for this to occur, but it happens all the time with book/movie crossovers. In the following paragraphs we will be discussing just some of the differences between the call of the wild book and the call of the wild movie. Not to mention it was published in 1903 so there were multiple things that the movie couldn’t have or express. John Thornton may have been important to the book, but he was the nearly movie’s main focus.
Both the film and the novel incorporate Holmes as the judgemental, observational, and intelligent detective, while Stapleton is the cunning, evil villain. the novel, there are more main characters, such as Laura Lyons, who plays an important role in the case. It states, "Mrs. Laura Lyons of Coombe Tracey had written to Sir Charles Baskerville and made an appointment with him at that very place and hour he met to his death.” In contrast, the film has less main characters. Therefore, both have a suspenseful mood, but the novel has a more suspicious mood while the film has a more dramatic mood. The director chooses to remove some characters to dramatically focus on less suspects of the case.

So, characters in the book greatly contrast from the movie adaptation. In conclusion, there are many dissimilarities between “The Monkey’s Paw,” by WW Jacobs and the movie adaption. For one, the setting was unalike because it took place in the UK and in the past. Another way the movie contrast to the book is characters’ actions because Herbert is more careful,, and Mrs. White was able to reach the lock.
