5 OF OUR FAVOURITE BOOK-TOSCREEN ADAPATIONS – on Net­flix right now

Fairlady - - GREEN FINGERS -

1. DIRK GEN­TLY’S HOLIS­TIC DE­TEC­TIVE AGENCY

BY DOU­GLAS ADAMS – to­tally quirky, an­ar­chic and fas­ci­nat­ing. Can’t wait for the next se­ries.

2. THE HAND­MAID’S TALE

BY MAR­GARET AT­WOOD – it’s won about a gazil­lion awards and stars the amaz­ing El­iz­a­beth Moss. Fu­tur­is­tic, dystopian… un­com­fort­ably close to the bone.

3. HOLES

BY LOUIS SACHAR – one of the best books ever, and this is a great – and oddly mov­ing – adap­ta­tion. It’s a kids’ movie, but don’t let that put you off for a se­cond.

4. THE BIG SHORT

BY MICHAEL LEWIS – a funny, smart and very en­ter­tain­ing look at the sub-prime crash. Look out for Mar­got Rob­bie in a bub­ble bath ex­plain­ing how it all works…

5. GONE GIRL

BY GIL­LIAN FLYNN – Rosamund Pike be­ing very bril­liant and very con­vinc­ingly creepy; Ben Af­fleck just be­ing his some­what creepy self.
