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.

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.
As I watched The Outsiders movie I realized that there were many differences and similarities to the book. Overall, me being picky, personally thought that the movie was different from the book. I liked the movie, however, I think that I would probably like the movie better if I hadn’t had read the book, that way I would feel so strongly about the who I think the characters are.

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

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

The short story The pedestrian by Ray Bradbury and the film adaptation by Alan Bollinger had a change in theme. The (PBS) article on film adaptation discusses the difference between written text and film and the struggle of adapting a book into a movie.

During this conversion of book to film, there were some things the creators kept the same and did differently, such as the telepathy, the grievers, and the maze exit.
