‘The Book Was Better’ Gets a T-Shirt

Do you think the book is always better than the movie? Over at Shirt.Woot, you can buy a $15 t-shirt that will show the world your literary pride: “The Book Was Better!”

The shirt (created by an Illinois artist named MJ) also inspired a passionate debate among readers, moviegoers and video game players. One reader explained:

As a rule, movies based on video games are almost universally terrible (although I enjoyed Mortal Kombat and a few others). When Halo eventually turns into a movie, I expect it to be in reverse order (Game>Movie>Books). I agree that Jurassic Park, Fight Club and A Clockwork Orange are definite possibilities for movie-better-than-book, they came to my mind too. I prefer Clockwork without the happy ending, regardless of the author’s opinion.
