BOOKS THAT SHOULD NOT BECOME MOVIES
With the increasing number of Hollywood book adaptations I thought I'd include some novels that maybe we should leave alone
- •Catcher in the RyeFor starters the thought of making this classic into a film would be a bough to make Salinger roll over in his grave. Secondly, it would be two hours of a privileged white kid complaining about everything.
- •100 Years of SolitudeOne of my favorites, but it's a very character-centric novel. There's no a whole lot of a central plot, and I'm worried about the depth of the characters not being able to translate to the big screen.
- •House of LeavesAn interesting book with a good plot, but a complicated narrative. The only way it could be doable is if it was formatted as a documentary, and even that loses a lot.
