Are the books we love being done justice with the films that proceed them ?

With our ever growing population, modern day society lusts for entertainment and everyday takes steps to destroy more of our greatest paper bound stories and traps an echo of their brilliance in a hollow cinematic shell.

Are books and by extension their authors being treated unjust with video representation of their work?
Is there any great films that come from books? and do they live up to the standards set by the book? Oppositely is their any books that come from films and do they set a standard?
how well is the film industry doing converting these stories into picture and is their any book you would never want to see as a film , where would you draw the line?
