Topic: must-read book recommendations ?

My all time favourite is "Shantaram" by Gregory David Roberts. And like most of the best sellers, this one is too being carved into a film with lead character to be played by Mr. Johny Depp. I have my fingers crossed, I wish they dont ruin the book - which usually happens whenever the film is adapted from a book. (e.g. The Rainmaker, The Da Vinci Code)

Topic: when books are turned into films.

I was quite disappointed by movies, The Rainmaker and The Da Vinci Code. I feel, somehow the characters (Rudy Baylor & Robert Langdon) portrayed in films couldn't justice the novels despite having the finest actors and directors and despite having the authors of the books associated with film making.
