Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading.
This week's 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?
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. This fantasy story has everything; charismatic main characters, fast-paced action, elaborate cons, treachery, breath-taking scenery, clever humour, thrilling suspense, and really nasty bad guys. I would love to see how (and if) all this translates to screen.
Lies is listed on IMDB as being under development, so maybe it will happen one day. If done right (preferally involving Lynch in the process) this movie could be epic – but it could also crash and burn. But I'm willing to take my chances just to see how the city of Camorr with the five elderglass towers would look in CGI.
BTW, check out my Top Ten Tuesday list of ten books I would like to see made into movies.
Which book would you choose?
