Booking Through Thursday (7)

This week's Booking Through Thursday question is...
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).
Oh. This is even harder than last week's question! I've honestly been racking my brain for an answer and I just can't think of a specific book that I don't want turned into a movie! If the movie didn't already exist (I hated the movie, by the way), I would have said The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold because I knew they would mess that up completely.

OH! I have one. I love the book A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. If you haven't read it, it's an emotionally exhausting book that is guaranteed to make you want to roll into a ball and cry your eyes out. It's wonderful though and a story well-told by Hosseini. I don't think I'd want to see this in a movie. I feel like it would just kind of ruin the book for me since I had such an intimate connection with it and I don't know how well the substance of that book could be portrayed - you know what I mean?

Other than that, there's nothing I'm really 'against' seeing as a movie. You should have asked me which existing adaptations I hate ;) I could have given you a decent list.

Final Verdict: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini and possibly others that I can't think of right now.
