Books That Were Made Into Movies

What do blockbuster films like Divergent, The Hunt for Red October, and The Godfather have in common? Before they were hit movies they were all bestselling novels. Popular works of fiction have long been one of Hollywood's go-to sources for new movie ideas. Additionally many critically acclaimed motion pictures were originally inspired by short stories and novellas. Great examples include The Shawshank Redemption (a wonderful adaptation of Stephen King's novella "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption"), A Christmas Story (adapted from Jean Shepherd's short story "Red Ryder Nails the Hammond Kid"), and Brokeback Mountain (from the short story of the same name by Annie Proulx). And while many books do indeed translate well to the big screen, most readers readily recognize that the books often allow for a greater level of detail and more nuanced storytelling than movies and television shows can convey. And audiobooks make experiencing these great titles exceedingly easy and convenient - especially for those who are constantly on the go or for those readers who struggle with learning disabilities. An additional strength offered by audiobooks is that a skilled narrator can truly bring a great story to life.

Our immense audiobook collection contains a wide variety of titles across all categories and genres that went on to become popular films and TV movies. Browse the selection on this page to see some great examples and find the perfect audio book to add to your library.
