Writer's Block: Book based

Is there a book you really loved that was subsequently turned into a movie? Did it live up to your expectations? Why or why not?

I was very disappointed in the movie adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. A lot of the subtlety and intellectual nuance were lost, not to mention the feminist political subtext. It was watered down into a run-of-the-mill sci-fi dystopia.
