Some books are so brilliant I fear
they could never be made into good movies.
Here are some I wish could be made into movies:
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
has it all: mystery and murder.
The Gold Bug Variations is
music, math, and intelligence.
A tough book to make into a movie.
Have any Haruki Murakami books
been made into movies?
This one or 1Q84 would be expecially tricky.
Half of a Yellow Sun is another big book
that would be difficult to make into a
I can see Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
as a movie. Why hasn't it been undertaken?
With so many wonderful older actresses out there,
why not try to make a movie from Olive Kitteridge?
Meryl Streep, perhaps?
I'm amazed that no one has made Megan McCafferty's
Sloppy Firsts into a movie.
What could Hollywood do with
The Lover's Dictionary?
And who wouldn't love to see a movie
made from one of M.F.K. Fisher's books like
An Alphabet for Gourmets?
