"Lopez compiles the best film adaptations in a sweet, compact volume . . . Lopez's writing is lively . . . A good resource for book clubs and movie buffs alike."
--Booklist
"An impressively entertaining and erudite collection of essays . . . 'But Have You Read The Book?' does its job well: it's the kind of read that'll leave you running to both your reading list and your watchlist to add several titles to the top."--Valerie Ettenhofer, Slash Film
"A compendium of 52 stories taken from print to screen [that] parses differences between the versions of each story, pointing out actor credits and box office facts for the movies and themes explored in the books. So is But Have You Read the Book? for film buffs or book nerds? I say both."--Susannah Felts, BookPage
"If you're a big reader who also loves movies, you'll get a kick out of [this] cleverly designed anthology . . . Irresistible."--Ron Charles, The Washington Post
"A fun and handy guide for book lovers who wonder if they should watch the film adaptation, and for movie lovers who wonder if they should read the source material for a favorite flick." --Shelf Awareness
"With [this] lovely book readers and cinephiles will now have a wonderful guide to assist with finding their next favorite read or watch."--MovieJawn
