Books Vs Adaptations

We were sent this wonderful infographic from Cartridge Discount comparing some of the most famous book series in the world versus their adaptions. It delves into the average ratings of each book in a series versus the show/film, the average reading time versus the average watching time and the total sales of each to crown one version the winner.

The image looks at such titles as Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey.

Some of the totals are truly staggering such as The Hunger Games book series selling 65 million copies around the world while the movie adaptions have so far grossed £1,436,538,246. Mind blown.
