We’ve watched as beloved books get made into not-so-beloved movies. We’ve wondered why more of our favorite books haven’t been scooped up to be made into film. When the books are set for production, we offer our suggestions for who should be cast as whom. We wait with breathless anticipation to see if the film’s reality will live up to our imagination.
But there are some books that just wouldn’t translate, no matter what a great director or toothsome cast are chosen. Maybe there’s too much internal dialogue; maybe the characters could never possibly live up to how they’re described; maybe there’s another reason.
Answer honestly: What romance novel should never be made into a film, and why?
