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.
The book differs starting just by the tone. The book is told by the narrator to make us imagine the character. Bilbo Baggins and the other various pictures that are mind blowing to the imagination. The movie however Tolkien’s voice was not told through narration, but Bilbo Baggins now plays as a character himself (main character in book). How both stories are told is great, but the movie itself really brings to life all character and possible book images too.
And there's no way you're gonna make me” so she grabs him, takes him to the surface forcing him to give in so he doesn’t get eaten by the birds, this shows Dory cutting egos down to size.

This all changed after she met Eric, and her curiosity became nothing else but to seek a kiss from the
One of the advantages of films is the communication of people and places that written descriptions cannot. The book does not contain much dialog which makes it more difficult for the audience to be captivated by the story. The audience uses the actors and their reactions and facial expressions as a way to connect with the narrative. Being able to visually see the story acted out on film makes the events of Martin Guerre feel substantially more real.

In the movie version of Orson Scott Card's, Ender's Game, many differences compared to the content of the book were presented. Overall, it could be observed that the differences and additions to the book were a bad choice for such a great book because it was incompetent to match the theme, make character relationships well and developed, and its inability to correctly convey the main character, Ender Wiggins feeling as he moves up rank in the International Fleet. The movie presented various pieces of rising action which cheapened the thrill of the climax, and in ways when compared to the book, was somewhat ironic. In the book, there are three main characters: Ender, Valentine, and Peter. However, in the movie the crucial characters were Ender, Valentine, and Petra.

One of these times was in was in the rumble when it started raining, even though it didn’t in the movie.

In “You Can’t Just Walk On By” the boy learns his lesson about respecting all living creatures. Once he knew he was safe from the snake he began to think about how he had almost died and saying, “Not ever again would I take life for granted” (Deal 152). Everyone in each story realizes how vulnerable they are to these small, but deadly
“Princess Kachina we gave them a surprise and attacked in the cover of dark, not one man was hurt.” He looked at Kachina with great pride and puffed his chest. “We will reclaim that land soon princess you need not to worry.” Kachina looked at him wanting to know more of what happened but knew he was tired and left him to sleep more. She skipped on over to the river where she heard yelling and dogs barking. “I just found two more dead captain.” The voices of the men sounded bitter and mournful. “That’s 40 bodies in all, have you gone mad!” “No sir
