    1. I knew someone would suggest something like that! 🙂 I contemplated putting Dostoevsky’s ‘Crime and Punishment’ too, but decided against it; if there is a film ‘The Brothers Karamazov’, it got to be in two parts or something, because the novel is so long. Very good suggestion, thanks!

    1. Great suggestion. I remember the book now and there is so much “background thinking” by the protagonist which may be tricky to transmit into a film if it is to be done right, but surely not impossible!
