BTT: Coming Soon to a Theater Near You
Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?
I’m going with The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson (Book Review: The Warmth of Other Suns). This is an odd choice, since it’s nonfiction, but the three illustrative tales are movie-worthy. I think that a good screenplay writer could find a way to braid them into one compelling narrative that would impact our understanding of how America came to be the country it is today with our peculiar strengths and weaknesses.
Be sure to check today’s Booking Through Thursday post for other answers to this question.
And what about you? What have you read that you would like to see made into a movie?
Cool. It’d be interesting to see a nonfiction book as a movie.
Nice choice, I’d have a hard time choosing just one book I’d like to see become a movie. Of course, there are some books made into movies I wish never happened.
Oh, and thanks for the spell check on my list. I think I got them all fixed.
Come by and see mine and my giveaways:http://tributebooksmama.blogspot.com
My top choice is already done 2/3, Nightwatch by Sergei Lukyanenko (the films Nightwatch and Daywatch cover two of the three novellas in the Nightwatch book).
I would LOVE to see a Dresden Files movie.
