    "This probably has the most detail in it on Amazon. It comes with so many options for ways to enjoy the story, and they are Kindle, hard cover, paperback, audiobook, mass market paperback, audio CD, and multimedia CD. It also gets good ratings. Something that I noticed is the tabs that lead you to this book in the book category mark this story as "teen & young adult" and "science fiction & fantasy" which is more detailed then the topic, which just asks for best books worth a movie. A question I would ask is, was the first book in this series in a movie? I think it may answer some questions as to why this was chosen as a solution to the topic!"

    "I have not read the Eragon series, but I know there are many fans. I'm actually quite surprised this hasn't already been made into a movie. I think it would be a great choice and would have a strong box office."

    "I don't know about this becoming a movie its not really my type of story. I like comedies and this defiantly is not a comedy although i would probably watch it if it was turned into a movie it probably would feel tedious."

    "As a rule, I don't like it when books are made into movies. The movies inevitably screw something up , leave things out, or just plain rewrite what happened. And this book is no exception. First off, it's the third in a trilogy. If we make this into a movie, we have to do the other two first. And this feels too Twilight-ish for me. I just don't think the world needs any more angsty teenagers dealing with monsters on the silver screen."

    "In this dark novel, you have no free will. Everything is decided for you. Matched is a book that is definitely worth being made into a movie. It is an updated version of the Orwellian vision of society. With all of the surveillance that is going on currently, this dystopian future was easy to imagine. Matched reminds me of an episode of Black Mirror. This is a must read! "

    "While I'm not explicitly a vampire fan - I do have a fifteen year old and she is (we just ordered a t-shirt with vampires on it!). She loves these books and so do her friends. I don't know who would direct it, but if they got someone halfway decent (and I promise, it would only have to be halfway decent!) my daughter and her friends would fill the theater. This book is THAT good. So, yeah, this book is definitely worth a movie deal. "
