What Book Do You Love Too Much?
What book to you love too much to see made into a movie.
Laura Lippman and Megan talk about their problems with the the recent HBO Mildred Pierce mini-series here.
What book would you cringe at seeing turned into a movie? Of course, Gatsby comes right to mind and they are doing it again. But one I dreaded and it turned out well was WINTER'S BONE.
CATCHER IN THE RYE could never be done well though--too interior. What title would you hate to see on a marque? What could only do harm to the book?
