    Holy crap, a Tom Sawyer film would be legendary.

    Nice list! Interesting ideas.

  2. The Brothers Karamazov

      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!

  3. What about The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger?

    • dbmoviesblog says:

      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!
