Booking Through Thursday: Lights, Camera, Action!

Here's this week's BTT hosted by Deb. To read other answers or to participate, click through to the meme's blog (here).

What book do you think should be made into a movie? And do you have any suggestions for the producers?

Make This Movie

I'd like see to A Sudden Country by Karen Fisher made into a movie. I read the book before I started blogging, so I can't direct you to my review. It's about one of the first groups to travel the Oregon Trail and is based on the true story of the author's relatives. It is an insightful and frank look at how the journey affected the pioneers, especially the women. I loved the book.

I know nothing about producers and so on. But the people who produced and directed and filmed the Lonesome Dove mini-series would be my choice for this movie.

This sounds like an interesting book. I'm going to put it on my list (unless someone takes your suggestion and makes a movie first! :-)

Your post reminds me that I meant to read this book when it first came out and never got around to it. Thanks for reminding me that it needs to be on my tbr list.

That WOULD make a good movie! I'd buy a ticket. Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my response.

How have I not heard of this one? I have been drawn in the past to books about women on the Oregon Trail--they are true heroes in my mind and I often wonder if I could have done it?! I will be adding this to my never ending pile of tbr's. :-)

I have never heard of this one! It sounds like a really good choice though. I'll have to add it to my wishlist.

Sounds great! I'll have to add that to my do read list!

I've haven't heard of that book but it does sound interesting. Trouble is, they might romantisise or dramatise things but that's expected in movies I suppose.

Chris 3/12/09, 10:36 AM  

Haven't heard of it but it does sound good.

I read that book a while ago and had a hard time finishing it. It was a pretty slow read for me.

Not familiar with the title but it sounds like a good one for Hallmark.

I haven't read this one, but agree it would make an excellent movie. Good choice. My post is here

I love books about pioneers and think this would be a great movie.

bermudaonion 3/12/09, 1:21 PM  

That book sounds great!

JoAnn 3/12/09, 1:35 PM  

Sounds like a good one!

Matt 3/12/09, 2:07 PM  

I love my neighboring state so I'm game for this. :)

This sounds interesting. I love books set in that time frame. I might just have to check it out.

Thanks for recommending this book. This would be a good follow up to The Way West by A.B.Guthrie that I recently read. I love the pioneer/western genre. I haven't seen too many movies lately in this genre, so I'm voting with you on this one.

This sounds like a book I would love. I choose a series with Lonesome Dove in mind!

J. Kaye 3/12/09, 7:08 PM  

This is a neat question. My question would be who making the film? Some books would make great movies, but there are so many factors involved. You know?

booklineandsinker 3/12/09, 7:48 PM  

how about some of the kay scarpetta novels? or maybe the YA crossover series by megan mccafferty (sloppy firsts, second helpings, et al)?

Marie 3/12/09, 7:58 PM  

Sounds fun- lots of history and adventure. Perfect for the big screen! :-)

Yvonne 3/12/09, 9:34 PM  

I haven't read this one, but it does sound like it would be a good movie.

Amy 3/13/09, 1:20 AM  

Wow, I really want to read this book, now!

I hadn't heard of this before but it does sound like an interesting read!
