Do film and TV adaptations cut the juicy details from the book?

Readers are used to their favorite novels being adapted into motion pictures, but skeptical book fans fear that the movies cut too many details from their favorite books. "Crazy Rich Asians" is a highly-anticipated film adapted from the popular novel of the same name written by Kevin Kwan. It's the first Hollywood movie in 25 years to feature a predominantly Asian cast, so the pressure to get it right is on! But some acknowledge it's impossible for a film to include all the deets from a book in just two hours or less. Do adaptations do a bad job of including all the juice?

Skeptics say movies cut too many details, and this is always a fear when a book favorite is adapted into a movie or TV show.

But others are hopeful the book will come to life on the silver screen and be a cultural phenomenon. 

Plus, the book's writer Kevin Kwan told Signature Reads that the movie adaptation exceeds his expectations. 

SIGNATURE: Did the “Crazy Rich Asians” film meet your expectations? Did anything about the movie surprise you?
KEVIN KWAN: It didn’t just meet my expectations; it exceeded my expectations. So many things surprised me in the film. I love the way Jon Chu reimagined some of the scenes in my books and made them even more outrageous and spectacularly cinematic, like Colin Khoo’s bachelor party and Araminta’s big $50 million wedding.
