What book should I read?
We have an assignment at school where we have to read a book and watch a movie, before writing an essay on how they have similar themes. What would be a good book to do for this that has a very obvious theme? A book preferably for older readers.

"The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boone might make for an interesting essay. It is a book related to the Jewish Holocaust.

"The Princess Bride," the movie of which is rated the 50th-funniest of all time.

Any book translated into a movie will demonstrate clear differences, based on reader and viewer initial impression. The Bridges of Madison County is a good example
