Feature and Follow Friday
As you all know, Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, and is all about spreading some blogosphere love.
Question of the Week: What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?
My Answer: There are a few, so I'm breaking the "one book" rule. Damn it, who needs rules. Okay, so first off- Angela Carter's "The Magic Toyshop". It's such a great book, a true classic. It has me quaking in terror for its female protagonist and loving the male protagonist for his defiance and helplessness and gazing into the air and feeling lobotomized because I can never, ever, ever write like Angela Carter, nobody can. My love for the English language is multiplied twelve-fold just because of the existence of this book. Enough said why I wouldn't want to see a movie adaptation of it. This book is so cosmically brilliant that it would make the screens explode if they ever did an actual movie on it. It would be like looking at an angel in their full glory as on Supernatural. It would be devastating.
(Sorry for the fangirl-ism.)
And then the Night Circus. It took me ages to form an opinion on this book and in the end I decided that I loved it with all my heart and soul, just for the magic of it. A movie adaptation is on the works- I hear Summit has the rights. All that magic, captured properly on the screen? Seriously?
