Books I would like to see as movies

In Uncategorized on March 28, 2010 by Vikas

Almost every movie worth seeing is based on a book or a very good comic book. But there still remains large number of books that should be made into movies. Although some say that after reading a book it is not worth watching the movie but I beg to differ. So here is a list of books I want to see as movies.(some of them have been suggested by my friends and I have also not read them all)

On the Road by Jack Kerouac

Road trips, jazz, poetry, drugs and beat generation.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

In a future North America, where the rulers of Panem maintain control through an annual televised survival competition pitting young people from each of the twelve districts against one another, sixteen-year-old Katniss’s skills are put to the test when she voluntarily takes her younger sister’s place.

Pulp by Charles Bukowski

What can I say Pulp Fiction 2

Inferno by Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle

After being thrown out the window of his luxury apartment, science fiction writer Allen Carpentier wakes to find himself at the gates of hell. Feeling he’s landed in a great opportunity for a book, he attempts to follow Dante’s road map. Determined to meet Satan himself, Carpentier treks through the Nine Layers of Hell led by Benito Mussolini, and encounters countless mental and physical tortures. As he struggles to escape, he’s taken through new, puzzling, and outlandish versions of sin–recast for the present day.

Severance Package by Duane Swierczynski

Jamie DeBroux’s boss has called a special meeting for all “key personnel” at 9:00 a.m. on a hot Saturday in August.

When Jamie arrives, the conference room is stocked with cookies and champagne. His boss smiles and tells his employees, “We’re a cover for a branch of the intelligence community. And we’re being shut down.” Jamie’s boss then tells everyone to drink some champagne, and in a few seconds they’ll fall asleep—for good. If they refuse, they’ll be shot in the head.

Escape is not an option. Jamie’s boss has shut down the elevators and rigged the fire towers with chemical bombs. Panic sets in, chaos erupts, and no one is sure whom to trust. Jamie quickly realizes that there’s only one way he’s ever going to see his family again: the hard way.

P.S :

@Kush : The first entry is only because of you.

It would be even better if other people also provided there suggestions to such a list.
