I just recently read "Heart-Shaped Box" by Joe Hill, who is Stephen Kings son. I think this was a really good and very visual book and I think it would make a great movie. I also think Jodi Picoult writes very well written and visual books that I think could be turned into great movies.

That is interesting to know, I was not aware that stephen King had a son. Does his son write horror also, as you did not say.

Stephen King has 3 children. One daughter. his two sons are both authors. Joe Hill (whose name is Joseph Hillstrom King) didn't want to be known as being Stephen Kings son because he didn't want people to compare them or like him just cause of his father. He's only written one Novel so far. the one I mentioned. He's written short stories prior to the novel. He writes Fantasy/Ghostly/Horror type stuff. Not completely like his fathers though. Heart-Shaped box is Really good. I'd suggest it for sure.

If I were given a chance to choose I would like to pick the long story of Sherlock Holmes, “The Hound of The Baskervilles” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is a really a fascinated and attractive detective story. It is not merely a book of detective stories but also a book of literature and science.

Actually, "The Hound of the Baskervilles" has been adapted to film at least twice, once in 1983 and once in 2000. However, these were smaller productions, and even though I haven't seem them myself, I'll make an educated guess and say they probably aren't amazing films ;) It might be interesting if someone did a big budget adaptation these days. I'm thinking maybe Tim Burton could do something interesting with that story!

"The Dice Man" by Luke Rhinehart. They would probably have to cut some of it, being that the book is more than 500 pages, but it is full of so much insanity and suspense (at least in the first part of the book). I think the main word here is insanity. There are some really extreme and intense things going on in this book, which was written way back in 1971. I think some would find this book shocking even today.

Darwin's Radio and Darwin's Children by Greg Bear. Awesome novels about a rapid evolution process that occurs to some people, would be an awesome, though long movie. I guess it could be done as 2 movies like they are 2 books.

I would surly like to see The Dark Elf Trilogy as a movie soon. I believe these are the best books I've read (and I've read lots of great books). It would be a childhood dream come true for me... Besides the advanture and excitment, the story has many moral messeges that come with it - I recommend to read it.

If I could have my favourite book turned into a movie, I would choose The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop. It's dark enough so that it will keep it interesting yet has all the elements that make a good fantasy. Trouble with it is, to do the book justice they would have to have a massive budget and be on the same scale as the Lord of The Rings films. Still its nice to think it may happen at some point

Angels and Demons author Dan brown, have you read it, he wrote The Da Vinci Code also. I am not sure which you are supposed to read first of the two as they have the same character, Robert Langdon. Angels and demons is about the illuminati. It is a fantastic read and would make and excellent film.
