Hardest Novels to Film

The Screenhead team has made a list of the most difficult novels to adapt into movies. Ironically, most movies these days are based on literary sources, even though people are less interested in reading. Some bad books turn into great movies, like Hitchcock films, and some great books disappointingly fail to impress on the screen. Here are what this site calls the "Unfilmables," and the only directors that could do them justice.

  • Ulysses - James Joyce
  • Cat’s Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut
  • The Wind Up Bird Chronicle - Haruki Murakami
  • The Third Policeman - Flann O’Brien
  • 100 Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • Remembrance of Things Past - Marcel Proust
  • The Metamorphosis - Franz Kafka
  • A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole
  • Any Thomas Pynchon novel
  • Don Quixote - Miguel de Cervantes
  • The Atrocity Exhibition - J.G. Ballard
  • Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
  • Molloy, Malone Dies, The Unnameable - Samuel Beckett
