Which Fictional Books Should Be Adapted For The Screen?

Is there any fictional books which would be perfect for adaption? If so, then why?

  • I think with the popularity of biopics like "The Imitation Game," and "The Theory of Everything," I think an adaptation of "The Cryptonomicon" would do really well. – G Anderson Lake 7 years ago
  • I think "Middlesex" by Jeffery Eugenides would be a great choice. Especially considering the upcoming adaptation of "The Danish Girl." Both stories deal with the transgender identity. – Cagney 7 years ago
  • The Tamil epic "Ponniyin Selvan" is widely considered to be one of the most exciting stories every told, and this is the reason it has been left untouched for more than 60 years. It is just too perfect to be translated to any other medium. – Akilan 7 years ago
  • I'd like to see an adaptation of Darren Shan's City trilogy. It has the prefect balance of mystery, fantasy, grittiness and intricate stories. The first two books run parallel to each other so it would be interesting to see this (although I think this would be better for a tv show). The variety of interesting characters (Paucar Wami, Al Jeery, the Cardinal) is just brilliant. – Jamie 7 years ago
