Last week I skipped the BTT question because I didn't have time to blog that day. Now I see that this week's question is kind of the reverse of last week's so I may as well jam them both together in one post.
1. If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie ... what book would you choose?
I hope they'll make a good job of The Hobbit. I have also been wondering if they'll go on to make the rest of the Narnia series (I have not yet seen the The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - I'm waiting for the DVD to be released here at the end of May). Snooping around the internet now I find that it seems they're planning to do The Magician's Nephew next. I will certainly be interested to see that, and I hope that with modern special effects technology they'll be able to do it justice.
2. Name one book that you hope never, ever, ever gets made into a movie (no matter how good that movie might be).
What pops up is my struggle a couple of years back to get through The Mysteries of Udulpho (written by Anne Radcliffe, 1794). I actually blogged my way through that book :) It is a very long-winded book and yet the long-windedness (interwoven with very drawn-out suspense) is somehow its essence. I don't think it would be possible to get a good movie out of it. Just to make sure, I went on a search to see if maybe someone had already attempted it... but it doesn't seem like anyone has. Just as well!!!
