Feature and Follow (#1)




Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This is my first Follow Friday and I am looking forward to meeting great new blogger friends.

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?

A. I love books that are made into movies, but so many of them tend to not live up to the book itself.  I think my answer would be Divergent by Veronica Roth.  I really would love to see it as a movie, but I am nervous that they won't be able to capture the awesomeness of the book.



Thanks for stopping by.  Please follow me via GFC, Network Blogs, or RSS, and I look forward to following you back.

    I haven't read Divergent yet; it's on my 'tbr' pile. I would love to see the Vampire Academy series adapted into movies.

    Happy reading.

  5. Oh yeah, that one would make me nervous too. I just can't see how they'd get all the raw emotion to translate to film.

    Thanks for stopping in & following! Following back!

  6. I've heard Divergent is good - yet I haven't had a chance to read it. Several people loved it - so it would definitely be hard to translate to film.

    Happy Follow Friday!

  7. I'm a bit nervous about Divergent too but I hope if it's made into a film, it won't disappoint!

  8. I almost chose this book as my answer too. It's such a great read with a lot to make it exciting to watch, but the fear that it would get lost in translation is definitely there. Thanks for becoming a follower of mine, I'm now following you back via GFC.

  9. Divergent is such a good book! I probably would be worries like you, but at the same time I'd be sort of excited because it would be really awesome to see how it translates in somebody else's mind. :)

    Thanks so much for following me, I'm following back!

  10. Such a great book, but I'm afraid they'd edit too much in order to keep in a movie time fram. I guess that's the problem with most book/movies

  11. Divergent was my favourite book of 2011, and I'm nervous about the potential film-adaptation too. It's simply just too good to ever do the book justice, really. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following!

  14. I would love to see Divergent as a movie. It probably one day will be one but I agree that I would be worried. There is such an interesting concept in the dauntless compound that I don't know if a movie could capture it. Thanks for visiting My FF and I'm a new GFC follower.

  20. I agree, Divergent could make a phenomenal movie, but it worries me that Hollywood would completely ruin it for me. :(

  22. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a new follower of yours as well =) Divergent is a book that would be hard to translate onto the big screen. Are you as excited for Insurgent as I am?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I LOVED Divergent but I'm not sure how it would translate onto the screen... There's so much that happens in just that first book that they would have to either rush through the storyline or cut a whole bunch out to make it fit into a reasonable length movie, and I wouldn't want either. So, yeah, the thought does make me nervous. Great answer! Thanks for stopping by and for the follow! *Now following you via GFC*

  24. I can definitely see how 'Divergent' would be hard to make into a movie.
