Good list. I really like "the Godfather" films but have not read the Puzo novel. "The Lord of the Rings" are great just like the books.
The next part of the list has to include "Gone with the Wind."

I don't think you'll be disappointed with the next list. The fact is, there are so many great book movies out there! Seriously, some of the best and most acclaimed all came from books.

Chalk me up as another that didn't know Fight Club was a book first.

But yea. To say there haven't ever been any good ones is almost asinine. In fact, right now I can think of so many that I don't think your Top 10 will be able to fit them all.

Gone With the Wind (as mentioned)
To Kill a Mockingbird better be in there.
The Shining better be in there too.
Apocalypse Now
Schindler's List
The 39 Steps
Into the Wild
No Country for Old Men
Bourne Trilogy
Willy Wonka
A Clockwork Orange
The Outsiders
Lord of the Flies
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
The Prestige

Ok. I'll stop now. Clearly more than 10. Some of these may not deserve to be in the top 10, but all good book-to-movie films.

You have seen a lot of movies. I have seen only 3 or so films from your list.

You have got to The Prestige 'If You Haven't Already", its worthy of a Blu-Ray Purchase.

Wow, i never knew these movies were based on Book & yet are my all time favorites.

The Prestige
Bourne Trilogy
Apocalypse Now
Gone With the Wind
Fight Club
Lord Of The Rings.

Lord of the Rings books are some of the most famous books ever for movies.
