Yes, it would be nice to see them brought to life on screen.

I just finished Strong Heart. I think it would make an awesome series or film! The entire book was cinematic in a lot of ways. As far at the characters go, I think India Eisley would be a good Sarah. I'm not sure about the others; I have to think about it more. :eusa-think:

Strong Heart would adapt very well to screen. I think it would make a great movie, or perhaps miniseries.

I think that this book would make a good movie. People would enjoy watching the wilderness depicted in the book. The early humans are going to draw the attention of the audience.

I have a very clear, I mean specific, idea of how this tale could be made into a film, and you're all right, the settings appear well suited to some dramatic scenes and events. Plus, with all the digital abilities today, the reality of the ancient animals, the ancient people, the great ice bear, the seagoing passage along the coast, seem to me to be something that would be fantastic to see in the big screen.....But who should play William? Myra? Sergei? Sarah is the key, you'd need a young actress, someone no older than 16-18 I think......

Personally I am a darling of movies. This would be no exception. Seeing the whole story into a screen is adorable. A story well written as this would have been one of the best movies that would glue huge audience into their seats.

I believe "Strong Heart" would make a very nice movie especially if it is filmed in a place with the right scenery and good actors to play the roles. The actors chosen for it could make it interesting or the opposite.

I think I might enjoy Sarah's story and the nautical journey more if it were in movie form.

I think it would be a great movie! However, the books are always better than the movies made from them.

It would be awesome, given it's adventure. I wonder who could take the role of Sarah, must be a very tough person. The setting will change from imaginary to visual. I look forward to something like this.

I think anything can be made into a film, with the right twist. For example, I remember reading the deathly hallows, (the last Harry Potter book) and thinking at the time, "How are they going to get enough material to make a film from this" To my surprise they not only had enough for one film but for two!

Do you have anyone in mind that you picture for any of the characters?
