Books that haven't been made into movies?
For 8th grade we have to read one book that is 190+ pages. Fine, I thought, here's the catch- it cannot have been made into a movie. What good books can I read that haven't been made into a movie that are more than 190 pages and aren't porn? Thank you!

"The Visionist" by Rachel Urquart. It's a thriller about a teenage girl in 19th century New England
who unintentionally burns down her house, killing her abusive father, and the Shaker community
that takes her in.

"Fairest" by Gail Carson Levine; it's a revamped version of a fairy tale in the same universe as Ella Enchanted (which has, unfortunately, been made into a horrendous movie).

confederacy of dunces by john kennedy tool. its a pulitzer prize winner and one of the funniest books every written. they've been trying to make it into a movie for decades, but the project is cursed. something always goes wrong.
the tomb by f paul wilson. not a classic, but a good thriller that was the first book featuring Repairman Jack, one of the all time great heroes.
Foundation by Isaac Asimov (or Caves of Steel by Isaac Asimov)--sci fi classic. caves of steel is a detective story set in the future where a human pairs up with a robot to solve a murder. foundation is set on a planet trying to survive the decay of an empire that has existed for millennia with the help of a brilliant mathematician, Harry Seldon
The Terror by Dan Simmons--very well researched book speculating what might have happened to lost voyage looking for the mythical northwest passage around canada. horror, but the non-horror stuff is actually more interesting to me
Dante's Inferno--classic novel that really can't be made into a movie though several have borrowed ideas from it. the imagery is fantastic.
