Which book that you've read would make a great movie, and why? Who would you pick to play the main characters?

  • Ромен Гари "Обещание на рассвете".
  • "Симплициссимус"(ГГ, допустим, Илайджа Вуд)

  • It's a tie between:

    The Monstrumologist by Richard Yancey

    I don't want to spoil the book (in case you have yet to read it) but I found the plot very well thought through from start to finish.  I'm not entirely positive who I would pick to play the main protagonist--William James Henry--because he's twelve years-old.

    The Riddles of Epsilon by Christine Morton-Shaw

    I loved the characters in this book, especially Epsilon (my favorite character).  I loved the riddles he left behind for Jessica and how'd she solve them while learning past secrets.  It really was remarkable to see her character grow.

    As for the actors/actresses:  Emma Watson as Jessica and Tom Felton as Epsilon.  And yes, I know I'm picking two people from the Harry Potter movies, but what can I say?  I think they'd be good for playing those characters.


    Still Life with Crows by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child  (truthfully I'd like to see the series made into movies)

    Now, I'm usually good at solving murder/mystery cases before reaching the end, but this book took an unexpected turn.

    Agent Pendergast is one of the greatest puzzle/crime solvers ever to exist (besides the Riddler and Batman).  The culprit took me by surprise and caught me off guard; I hadn't even expected that!  It's an amazing novel--I had continued to read it even when I had gotten a cold and, although half of me wanted to sleep as one tends to when being sick, the other half refused because this book was too awesome to put down.  More so when reaching (about) the halfway point.

    It's hard to picture who best could represent Agent Pendergast; the guy is a unique character and it's hard to imagine an actor being able to stay in character.  But if I did have to choose I'd pick: Cillian Murphy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, or Garrett Hedlund.  I'm sure I've thought of other actors over the past years that would make a good Pendergast but at the moment these three are the only ones to come to mind.

  • Erm... "Twentie's Girl", by Sophie Kinsella. It's completely hilarious and has an awesome plot, too. Eh... For the main characters I guess I'd pick Anne Hathaway, Tom Hanks and... well, I can't really think of anyone to pull off Saddie's part. So, yeah, I guess that's it.

  • Lullabies for little criminals. It would so awesomely tragic and beautiful.

    The dad- Robert Pattionson - not because he's hot or famous, but if you actually read the book, he fits the character perfectly.

    Baby- Elle Fanning.
  • Wicca/Sweep series by Cate Tiernan. I have no idea who i would pick as the main charcters

  • Titanic. If you want to solve the problem of remote monitoring and Ip detecting, you may go to D CCTV Security's store. D CCTV Security is one of the leading CCTV Security System suppliers. They could offer remote video Surveillance System and ip Surveillance System with related products.
  • bill murray as plato

  • Little Sister - Japanese folklore based
    Chinese Folktales

    Creativity compared to the fairytales of the West. Pick people who can act and look the part.
  • Either Swan Song by R. R. McCammon, or A Canticle for Liebowitz by Walter M. Miller, Jr. I don't know about the rest of the characters, but I'd want Robin Williams to play the Man of Many Faces in the first case, or Henry "Freddy Krueger" Englund to play the Devil in the second case (even though the Devil never appears onstage at all in A Canticle for Liebowitz).
