Do you Think this Book Should be made into a Movie?

I was just wondering if anyone thinks this book should be made into a movie. I think it would be cool if the movie had a historical setting. Just want to know other peoples' opinions.

Sometimes when books are made into movies, it loses the essence of the book. If the director is able to do justice to the book, it would make a good movie.

I think it would make a good movie, but it depends on the chosen direction and how closely they want to follow the book...

Yeah it would make it more accessible...it would be found in a theater as a movie and in a book shelve!

Yeah, I think it's alright to make it into a movie. It would be great to see on the big screen that what we have read and imagined put into life.

I personally think books are ruined when they are made into movies. They lose some of their best parts.

I think it would be nice to visualize it but they should pick a good director and effects

True but my issue is that even with a good director and effects a lot of the story is left out. Sometimes even the best parts.

I personally think a movie will not be able to convey and depict the feeling that the book is able to convey. Some of the best books have been made into movies that crop a lot of the good parts and ruin the story. For example, Twilight and Harry Potter series.

This book would make a great movie only if closely followed. Mostly, movies are unable to feature all the aspects of a book which decreases the essence of the book.

I think that while converting a book into screenplay, realistically, there are certain things that will need to be omitted. They always just happen to be the good parts, so no, I feel like it will take away from the book if made into a movie.
