Booking Through Thursday: Not in Theaters

Question May 5, 2011: And–the reverse of last week’s question. Name one book that you hope never, ever, ever gets made into a movie (no matter how good that movie might be).

My answer: Easy: I hope Freedom by Jonathan Franzen never makes it to the big screen!! Oh man that book was so boring I couldn't finish it. One movie that shouldn't have been made into a movie but was is Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates. I read it in 2009 but apparently didn't review it. I found it to be incredibly pretentious and even though Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are in it, I can't make myself watch it!!

What do you think?


  1. Haven't read Freedom but any boring book should not be adapted. Haven't read Revolutionary Road or seen the film. My mom watched it, told me the plot and it sounded so depressing I decided to pass on it despite the excellent lead actors.

  2. Neither of these books appeal to me and I really don't like the look of the movie Revolutionary Road.

  3. I had to laugh cause before I saw your answer the first thing that popped into my min was Freedom. I don't think I have ever disliked a book like this one!
