Win one of four copies of Wild book

WildReese Witherspoon has another chance at Oscar glory, thanks to her riveting performance as Cheryl Strayed in the film Wild. The movie is based on the unbelievable true story of Cheryl Strayed, who told her story in the novel Wild. To celebrate the film we are giving Tribute fans an opportunity to win a copy of the novel the film is adapted from.

Cheryl’s life went into an emotional tailspin when her mother died and her marriage fell apart. After straying into a world of drugs and sex, she decided to clean herself and go on a difficult 1000-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail. Cheryl recounted her inspiring story in the novel Wild, where she gives intimate details about her life before, after and during the perilous trek along the Pacific Coast.

For a chance to win, leave a comment below to tell us what is your favorite book-to-film adaptation. ~Kelly Townsend

    Gone With The Wind was the best book to movie adaptation ever!! I had seen the movie many times before I bought the book and read it. The movie was absolutely true to the book and the characters were perfect. Nothing before or after has managed to portray the book in its entirety.

  17. Marlene C. • December 28, 2014 @ 1:36 PM

    Cold Mountain was my favorite adaption from book to screen! I found the book rather dry yet the movie was spectacular and moving! So glad I choose to watch the movie even though I found the book slow! Well worth the decision!

    Fried Green Tomatoes at The Whistle Stop Cafe by Fanny Flag is my favorite movie adaptation from a novel. We just watched this movie again and once again, loved it! The film producers did such an amazing job. The novel provides more details about the lives of the characters and the movie brings the characters to life! (:

    I read the Twilight books and really was impressed to watch the movies after reading. There is always things you read in the book that you don’t see in the movies that is why I still continue reading. I would love to read Wild before I watch the movie.

  111. Donna MacNeil • January 9, 2015 @ 6:28 PM

    I saw the movie “Twelve Years a Slave” and then read the book – both were great, but a lot more detail in the book of course. So I am anxious to see the movie “Wild” and also read the book.

  112. sandra leon • January 22, 2015 @ 12:38 PM

    Actually I try to read each book for each movie I see and enjoy! I like to see the differences between the two medians and doing both gives me a chance to see how much the movie impacts me personally. Sometimes I enjoy seeing a movie alone so that I can really focus. ….. thank you

  113. Jen L • February 5, 2015 @ 5:08 PM

    For me ‘Into the Wild’ for real-life story and ‘A Little Princess’, the B & W version, for Fiction.

  114. Andrea Beliveau • February 7, 2015 @ 11:37 AM

    Well, for me, Twilight was a very good movie brought to life from a book.
