It was a novelization in which Orson Scott Card was given the treatment notes and allowed to embellish upon Cameron's ideas.

The only movie to ever make me go read the book afterwards was "Jurassic Park".

I saw "The Time Machine" (the orginal movie) years before actually reading the book....But I read the book more because i wanted to read another book by H.G. Wells than because of the movie.

Read book after seeing movie:

A Clockwork Orange
The Shining
Eyes Wide Shut (Traumnovelle)
a part of Naked Lunch (besides being difficult to get through I also realized that the movie is more of an adaptation of Burroughs than his book)


Wanted to see movie, knew there was a book, and then read book before seeing the adaptation:

Lolita
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
In Cold Blood

Seeing "The Lost World" inspired me to read the book again....

and i still think the book is 100 million times better.

Jurassic Park. I loved Dinosaurs, so, since the film wouldn't be out for a while, I read the book.

I was disappointed with the changes and omissions, but I enjoy both. I fondly remember telling other kids (the loudmouth ones who bragged about seeing it before ANYONE else, or the most times) all the best bits from the book.

"Yes, TWO Tyrranosaurs! And John Hammond meets one!"
