Booking Through Thursday



This week's question: If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?



I would love to see Lisey's Story by Stephen King as a movie. It's such a wonderful book, so well planned and well thought out, that I think it would make a fabulous movie.


Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband Scott two years ago, after a twenty-five year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and bools. Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went -- a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King's most personal and powerful story ever, Lisey's Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.

Those are definitely some good themes to explore in a movie! I love movies about creativity and creative people.

I've never read anything by Stephen King but I hope to change that soon and this definitely sounds interesting. It must be one of his books that isn't as well known as I've never heard of it and most of his popular works are already movies.
