I have to say this storyline is a bit played out. But then again there was three Taken movies. Maybe it would be the type of popcorn average blockbuster that the crowd goes for because its easily digested and checks all of their clichéd movie expectations. I don't mean to sound condescending or bitter.
True, it has a good storyline. A book and a movie storyline differ slightly thus necessary to adjust to fit accordingly.

The book has a rich content and can be incorporated into a movie. The kidnappings and investigations herein can be reduced into a fantastic thriller movie.

I love crime, thriller books and movies and would consider watching this if it becomes a movie but just by reading the synopsis, it reminds me with the movie Taken or 3 Days to Kill.

I think it'll definitely make a good movie. There are movies out there similar to it and the author executes this story very well. So, it'll work as a movie.

Yes. Definitely would be a good movie, hoping that if it happens the interesting parts will not be left out.

Definitely yes. Actually I too thought about posting this topic, but you were ahead of me
I'm not really sure. It's easy for the movie to be stereotyped, except it's a solid and unique adaptation.

After reading only a few pages of this book, i can boldly say that this book will make a great action movie; it's thrilling.
