Why can’t these books be made into movies?


Why can’t these books be made into movies?

I really hope this is one of those blogs where you chime in, since I know for a fact that you get it.

You finish reading an outstanding book and want more. Then you start imagining what it would be like if it’s made into a movie. And then your thoughts turn to who would play the characters? I know I’m not alone in my musings.

Sure, I know that sometimes books are made into movies and it’s an epic fail. The author’s meaning and message are diluted or lost by the Hollywood touch. Then there are a few that didn’t quite have the zest until taken over by a producer.

I’m not saying that this would result in the most positive outcomes but there are a few I would very much like to see on the big screen. Here’s a start to my list. I plan to add more and I hope you will too.

Memory Man by David Baldacci

Irish Gold by Andrew Greeley

Origin by Dan Brown

Sycamore Row by John Grisham

    I love the book Irish Gold. I actually came across this post while searching if the movie had been made into a movie.

    David, I love that book and the series. I’m going to be doing a few reviews of some Andrew Greeley books this year. Glad you found Books Uplift. Keep stopping by for interesting articles about books and how they positively impact our lives.
