2 - The first book you remember reading
Same again: Kim Aldany’s “Les manges-forêts”. You often keep fond memories of your first, I guess.
(Only going for the novel right now… Because there was comics, but there… No idea…)
3 - A book that you wish had never been made into a movie
Hard one, this is usually not something I give a lot of attention and I rarely seek to see movie adapted from books I read, or vice versa.
I would have to say Solaris, but only the Soderbergh’s version. The Tarkovski’s one is a masterpiece, but once you have read the book (also a masterpiece), the Soderbergh’s one does clearly appears as a huge mistake.
4 - A book you really wish was made into a movie
Hum… McDevitt’s Deepsix could a great survival Scifi I think.
But a well made adaptation of Furakawa’s Soundtracks could be a great watch. After seeing Tokyo Tribe, I would say that Sion Sono could be the man to put it into a movie, but it is a tricky one.
5 - A book that wasn’t as good as its movie
Yet again, not something I give a lot of attention…
Tbh… I am not sure the short story “Do androids dream of electric sheeps” is anywhere as great as Blade runner. I mean, the short story is only one of the many very intersting Dick’s short stories, while Blade Runner… Well, it’s Blade Runner.
