What book do you think should be made into a movie? And do you have any suggestions for the producers?

Or, What book do you think should NEVER be made into a movie?

Books and movies are very different. Books that rely on character’s internal musings are going to have to be made very differently as a movie. Also, I tend to think that books that are centered around an idea instead of the characters and settings would be difficult to translate into a movie.

But in the end, everything depends on the people who shape the movie. I tend to think that these people are the director and writer but I know so little about movie industry that I could be wrong. I would think that a person or people who are passionate about the book might be the best ones to make it into a movie.

Then again…. can you imagine an interminably long Lord of the Rings where every single thing in the book was included? The songs, hobbits bathing, Tom Bombadil…

(I am both waiting and dreading the John Carter of Barsoom movie if it’s ever going to be made. John was my childhood hero.)
