8 movies that are better than their books

I have seen most of the films but I haven't read any of the corresponded books, apart from Stardust. As far as that book is concerned the movie was indeed better. (And the graphic novel)

 

The list:

-Room with a view

-Julie and Julia

-About a boy

-The painted veil

-Wicked

-Fight Club

-Stardust

-The Devil Wears Prada

 

Do you agree with the list? Do you have a book in mind that turned out to be better in film?
