A book that I personally think shouldn't be a movie (although, I've heard they will make one) is an amazing book called The Art of Racing In The Rain. The story is told from the point of view of a dog, and I don't think that they can capture his essence and personality, or tell the story without leaving out important parts, or parts that really help to explain things.
We asked Mrs. Hoole, too. She said that she doesn't want to see any more books where dogs die made into movies. "Enough with the depressing dog deaths!"
Sometimes, once in a while, they actually do a good job of the book, but overall, books just aren't meant to be movies.
What do you think? What books do YOU think shouldn't be made into movies, and why???
