Stephen I'd like to see the converse of this list. Great books that have never been made into a movie.
My first nominee would be The Front Runner


message 3: by Stephen (new)

Stephen After I made the comment above I found that there was a list like that. It included a lot of newer, sometimes less than great books. I think that the real interesting list would be those books that are generally considered great but have gone 10 years without a movie being made. I'll review my bookshelves and if I can find more than two or three I'll create a list.
