Have you ever seen a really great movie and had someone snidely remark that "the book was better"? What about when it's the author of the actual book itself?

Sometimes, the authors aren't too happy with how this transformation occurs, and so we bring you 13 Times Authors Hated the Movie Adaptation of Their Book.
