Happy Friday! (29)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read.

Q: What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?

I have heard rumblings about movies being made of Outlander and The Bronze Horseman. I absolutely loved these books but I don't think I could handle either as a movie.  I can't think of a single actor/actress who could do any of the characters justice nor do I think it possible for a moviemaker to show the kinds of emotions that were portrayed in the book.  If a movie was made of either of these books, I would probably see it but I have a feeling I would be disappointed.  That being said when I heard they were making a movie of The Hunger Games I was really on the fence about it and look how awesome that movie turned out.  So I guess it really depend on how true to the story the movie stays and how good the actors are.

What book do you have reservations about being made into a movie?


  1. I agree about Outlander. Whoever they cast would also have to commit to it for a long time and age well, since the books span such a long period of time. I think by Voyager they'd look like the cast of Harry Potter during the epilogue scene.

  3. Outlander would either be really good or horrible. I'm not sure which.

  4. Hopping through. I wonder how an Outlander movie would be. I've been meaning to read those books for years.
