It's Thursday! Tami inspired this week’s question:
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?
The first thing that comes to mind is one of my all-time favorite books, Wallace Stegner's Crossing to Safety. The story centers around two couples that meet during the Depression and follows them through the course of a life-long friendship. It doesn't sound all that exciting, but it contains the most stunning character development I've ever read.
Another possibility is the Benjamin Black (John Banville's alter ego) crime thriller series featuring pathologist Garret Quirke. Christine Falls and The Silver Swan would make exciting films!
The second part of the question, which book should never be made into a movie, resulted in an "oh, wait a minute" moment. My answer is the same as part one! Movies made of books I love are often a disappointment and I'd rather not risk it with Crossing to Safety.
