FF 2012 Feature & Follow #80

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?

Oh, that's a tough one, I usually love to see any book become a movie. Last year, i might have said The Hunger Games, just because of the pure infamy of it. There's high expectations, and if you got it wrong you would have millions of fans on your back. Thankfully, they got it right (i've seen it...twice!).
But, that's already a movie.
So i guess i'd probably have to choose the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. Not because i'm such a massive fan (which i kinda am) but more because of the world it's set in. The Nevernever is pure imagination, and i don't think a movie could ever project that.

Okay, so that's it! Leave comment, follow, and i promise to stop by soon :D

Have an awesome weekend,
Imo <l:)>

  1. o.o I didn't even think of that, but you're right. i don't think Hollywood can capture the Nevernever on screen!

  2. Hopping through. I would love to see Iron Fey as a movie but I don't think it could do it justice.

  4. Hi there :) just hopping through.

    I haven't read this book but, it must be hard to duplicate the feel a book gives you to the onscreen. THG was really great, idk how close to the book though as I haven't read it.

    Here is my choice...

  5. I would think the Iron Fey would be doomed because of all the special effects. A year ago I too would have said THG.

  6. I didn't know what the Iron Fey series was like but it does sound to whimsical to be made into a good film!

  7. I was going to say HG as well, too bad the movie makers got there first! The first Iron Fey book is in the post so I will be reading it soon!

  8. Iron Fey series is a good choice. I would love to see that as a movie but at the same time I wouldn't! I would be fearful that they wouldn't get Ash. Plus it's so full of magic. I don't know.

  9. Great answer. Besides, who would they get hot enough to play Ash?

  10. I haven't thought of the Iron Fey series but yeah, quite impossible to do that one right.

  11. I love your blog's name. xD

    I haven't read the Iron Fey series yet but I'm planning to (after I read The Immortal Rules I'm pretty much in love with Julie Kagawa), so I'm not judging yet. From what I see, people are quite afraid to see this one made into a movie.

  12. Ha. If they find an Ash I like, I swear I'm going to quit blogging. (In other words: Not going to happen.) Can't imagine a movie for Iron Fey. Some scenes are pure awesomeness and we can bring them to life only in our heads. New follower.

  13. Hey, great answers! I don't know about the imagination thing, though. I mean LOTR's world was pretty far out there, and I think they did an amazing job with it. I think it depends on the directors and screenwriters a lot of the time. However, the fact that you're not sure what they'd do would cause nervousness.

    Anyway, new follower via GFC!

  14. Hi, I thought the Hunger Games turned out great to. Haven't read the Iron Fey series yet, though you're the second person that has mentioned that one today.

  17. it's true it's interesting to see how it is, but I'm always nervous because it's never as good as the book.

  20. I've only read The Iron King, but I agree! I had the hardest time imagining all the different characters in my head and I have no idea how you could translate it onto the screen. Great answer! Thanks for stopping by and for the follow! *Now following you*

    Funny how a lot of people say 'I would have said the Hunger Games' but eventually, everyone thinks the movie came out fine :D I thought it was great!
