I'm pretty much ripping the idea from Rollingstone.com. I've been enjoying their Weekend Rock Questions for a while in which they throw out a question of Friday (ex. What is the best Black Sabbath song? or Who should be the next band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?) and compile a top 10 list the following week. Of course, it's Rollingstone.com, not bookmineset.com, and they're asking about rock music not Canadian books, so you can see that I need your help getting these numbers up if this feature is going to make it.
Without further ado, here's the first question:
What has been the best small or big screen adaptation of a Canadian book?
This week's question inspired by Richard Van Camp's recent adaptation of the Lesser Blessed, which I've still unfortunately not seen. Perhaps you loved the recent Oscar winning Life of Pi. Maybe you're partial to the CBC classic Anne of Green Gables miniseries. Franklin? Water for Elephants? Caillou? Away From Her? Barney's Version? Does Superman count? Scott Pilgrim definitely does. The English Patient? Field of Dreams? Sunshine Sketches? One Week? Random Passage? Rare Birds? Blood Ties? jPod? The Hockey Sweater? Shake Hands With the Devil?
None of these float your boat? Maybe you have another idea. If not, you can find more suggestions here: Goodreads, Canadian Literature Film Adaptations Quiz.
Feel free to add more suggestions, but you can only vote for one! Vote here in the comments or through Twitter.
Results and next week's question will be revealed on Friday, March 10.
