Have you ever wondered what the book authors might think of their books’ movie adaptations? Let’s find out who these four book authors are who loved their movie adaptations.


1. Blade Runner is adapted from Philip Dick’s novel, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? But he died tragically before the film’s release. However, a letter on his website talked greatly about the graphical representation of artistic expression, saying, “What I am saying is that all of you collectively may have created a unique new form of graphic, artistic expression, never before seen. And, I think, Blade Runner is going to revolutionize our conceptions of what science fiction is and, more can be.”
