The age-old debate continues to rage whether the book always better than the film?

Curious to find an answer, researchers at OnBuy.com have delved into the numbers to discover which book-to-film adaptations have left fans most disappointed.

By combining the reviews of best-selling books on Goodreads with the reviews of its movie counterpart on IMDb, they revealed the popular novels that failed to set the world of cinema alight.

Here are their findings:

  • Fifty Shades of Grey – released in 2015 – is the worst book-to-film adaptation, with fans saying it is 44 per cent worse than the novel
  • Mockingjay, the final film The Hunger Games series, comes in second place with a 19 per cent differential
  • The Girl on the Train and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are in joint third with a 17 per cent deficit
  • Me Before You, The Da Vinci Code and The Fault in Our Stars are also revealed to be among the worst book-to-film adaptations

On the plus side, Gone Girl is deemed to be the most accurate – with only one per cent of fans think it is worse than the original book.
