And I´d like to think that the social questions that Gariffo raises in this book could reach more people and make us think about the brainwashing that we live. Although, it would be kind of ironic, to talk about brainwashing using a mass media resource, but it would be the means to an end,
I agree that the masses watch the large screens more than read books.And the premise that the author wants to reach the audience will be served.

Though I prefer reading from the book itself, I find that I still tend to enjoy the movie adaptations. It should definitely be made into a movie

I definitely think this could be made into a good movie. The current trend of focusing on futuristic society with new technology would fit well with this book.

I've already added the novel to my 'want to read' books in my bookshelf. From the reviews I've read so far about the book, I think that this novel will make a very good action movie because the novel has a good and captivating storyline which will make more sense if transformed into a movie.

Yeah, this could be a movie. I usually think that as long as a novel doesn't rely too much on internal conflict and private character growth, it could be a movie. It's hard to show a good internal monologue in a film. You might need some special effects to make this into a movie, of course.

It would make a great movie with the high tech stuff going on in movies recently. Something I would definitely be interested to watch.

If this book is adopted into a movie it will be a hit for sure. The storyline of the book is too good and the characters of the book is also potrayed well.

Yes! :D Everything’s possible! With such a great story at hand, i’m sure this can be a blockbuster hit movie too! It’s a fact that people draws interest in seeing a glimpse of what the future holds and oftentimes, they see them through these types of movies🤗 Best regards to the author :tiphat:

Those thrilling scenes surely may make a movie sourced from the novel a great hit. There are many incidents in the book that can best be relayed through film.

I don't think it's a good idea. There's been plenty of dystopian, futuristic movies. There wouldn't be much demand and the plot could be told to be unoriginal. A series, on the other hand, could be a better alternative...

I have not read beyond the sample but it convinced me that the book deals with futuristic technology and dystopia as themes. If the book's material is turned into a good script, then definitely, this can be adapted on the silver screen since today's CGI and VFX are mind-blowing.
