Of course this book would work as a film of action.Because there are many actions at the beginning of the story .

I don’t know if there is enough action in the beginning of the story, but it could definitely be expanded for film.

I’d have to agree with you on this. It kind of took a backseat in the book.

This plot definitely needs work before it can succeed as a film.

I agree. It might be more feasible to consider a movie once the series is complete, and the plot concluded.

If this book will be made into a film, the resulting product would be interesting. But this will be a high-budget film due to the props. The scene will use specialized backdrops, ideal for the episode at hand. Not much expense for the sex scenes because you needed only bedroom items, but for most of the action, special gadgets will have to be devised. And maybe, the production team of the film outfit may have to resort to excessive animation.

It has promise with the exotic world and everything, but like others have noted, explicit scenes would need to be reworked to reach the maximum audience.

Film will be made on this but the problem is that no one is going to watch it. It is not going to be a family film.
