I think a movie based on this story would be very thrilling. The fact that the background is strange to us makes it more interesting. I don't really see any parts that won't fit in.

i think this book is good for TV series and not movie. There are a lot of things going on in this book and hard to make it a movie.

I haven't read it, but why not, futuristic scenes are popular in movies.

I think any good story should be adopted into a movie whether fiction or not.

I have not read the book but if the actors and directors did a great job perhaps it would be a good movie. Many actors destroyed the character of the story due to bad acting and some directors are just fond of deviating from the original storyline so at the end of the day, its the end product that matters.

I could totally see a novel like this successfully turned into a movie. I think sci-fi/dystopian novels always make great, action packed movies.

I have only read the sample and reviews of this novel, based on those I do think it can be a good movie.

I agree with you. Dystopian films have proven successful in recent years.

Yes, I can see this made into a movie. There are plenty of action and twists in the story to make a good movie. I think the use of currency in the world could change to just being numbers or points that are kept track of digitally like in the book.

Based on the reviews I've read, it seems a likely movie candidate compared with others in the sci-fi genre.

I always have problems with books being turned into movies because generally they leave out so much detail and backstory.
