I think a lot of movie adaptations of books would be better if they copied the books scene-for-scene as well.
No. But I have seen movies that are equally compelling as their literary counterparts.
Length and inner monologue are preventative to doing that.
I probably enjoyed Lord of the Rings better as a movie.
Someone could make a great Frankenstein by just filming the book.

I find Stanley Kubrick's "Clockwork Orange" to be much better than the book. However I read the German version.
However I read the German version.More proof that translations always suck compared to the original. Hence why I absolutely refuse to read ANY text that has been translated to Dutch when I can just as well read and understand the original (English) version.
