The novel The Lone Ranger and the Fistfight in Tonto and the film Smoke Signals are very similar in many aspects but have some key difference as well. The main differences occur in the situation where the characters had a choice. The first situation is where Victor and Thomas is the book decided to abruptly leave the Trailer in which they were staying while in the film Alexie chose to stay there. This lead to some character development where Alexie shared some of his stories such as the one about the basketball game. Another difference is throughout the film it is shown that Victor and Thomas have a more strained and aggressive relationship this can be seen in the scene when they're in the truck and Thomas yelled at Victor and showed aggression that wasn't seen in the novel; in the novel Thomas and Victor have a more respectful relationship with one another. Since Thomas is a lot more passive in the novel his stories are more easily understood. The biggest similarity in the book had to be the plot line where Victor's father dies in Arizona and he needed the help of Thomas to pick up his ashes. The difference is how they traveled to Arizona, in the film it was by bus in the novel it was by plane. Another difference in the amount of money Victor was given in the film he says his mother gave him fourth dollars in the novel he was given one hundred by the tribe. All in all the largest difference would be the origination
In A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’engle, there are many differences between the novel and the movie version. Even though there are many differences, there are also many similarities from the two. However, in the movie there are many more differences in characters and relationships, plot sequencing, and details compared to the book version.

So she has to downstairs and that’s when Charles Wallace is already down there knowings she would come and prepares her a sandwich. However, in the movie it begins with Meg outside wishing for her father to come back and when she walks inside her Mother and Charles Wallace are there preparing sandwiches.

The Grinch who stole Christmas is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I found 3 things similar to one another in the book and the movie which had the Grinch who hated Christmas, the Who’s who loved Christmas, and the Grinch stole all of the presents and food. One identical thing I found in the movie and book was that the Grinch hated Christmas. If they didn’t put the Grinch’s hate for Christmas in both the book and, he would have no reason to steal Christmas and it wouldn’t have been a very good movie. The second comparison between the book and the movie was Who’s love for Christmas. This is very important because the it is the Who’s love for Christmas that causes the Grinch's hate for

The Jeannette role that was played by Brie Larson did a good job of showing how Jeannette is as a person. Her personality was changed slightly in the book I saw her as still loving but in the movie she seemed more annoyed with her parents than embarrassed and guilty. I believe Naomi Watts who play Rose Mary or Jeanette's mother couldn’t have been more perfect. Those were the only two main characters in the book in that section. Added in the movie were Jeannette’s father and her husband. The father was also perfect but the husband seemed very involved with her life which in the book it does not seem that way. The plot from book to movie was changed and but mostly the same
