Today’s BTT question is:
If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?
Off the top of my head, I would say it’s Jostein Gaarder’s “The Solitaire Mystery”. I think it’s got the right amount of adventure and whimsey that would appeal to a lot of people. Plus, it’s a story within a story (which is something we’ve seen in recent movies like Inception and Sucker Punch).
Personally, I think it would look great as an animated film, a la Hayao Miyazaki. Then again, if it were something like Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland it would also work.
