Follow Friday - 13/04/2012



Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison can read. Each week participants are given a prompt. This week's is:  



Q: 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?


There are so many possible answers to this question! I think it's very hard to translate a good book well to the silver screen: there are so many things in a book that you can't have in a movie. I'm going to go with Warrior Daughter by Janet Paisley. 



It's not a very well known book, I know. It's about one of the Celtic Queens of Britannia who stood against the advancing Roman armies. There's so much nudity and sex in the book that I don't think they could ever make a good film of the story without changing its whole essence.

How about you? Leave a comment with a link to your blog and I'll be sure to pop over and leave a comment in return when I get home this evening!

Happy hopping and have a great weekend!

  3. LOL yeah it's annoying when they censor books to appeal to younger audiences- I like sex, nudity, violence, gore...especially when it is relevant to the story!

  5. Hi! I'm a new follower hopping by!

    Lovely answer! I think as long as the author has a voice and participates in the decisions needed for the movie, the movie will turn out fine.

  10. I haven't heard of this book, but honestly, if they could do the nudity and sex in Game of Thrones, I don't see anything stopping them with this one LOL

  11. Hey, I was upset about "One for the Money." No one asked me if I thought Sandra could pull it off. So sad, I haven't even watched it yet. Hey I don't even know if that is its name.
