It's just a deeper insight into the ideas and thoughts of the persons writing the story and helps you to see just how truly creative (or twisted) they can be.
As for books I'd like to see become films, I would suggest the book in the picture. I completed it a few nights ago and found that it's a story that bends and curves, yet doesn't let you down.
the idea for the movie has been considered but sits in the "pile" of things to be made whereas his 4th novel (Choke - 2008) was made instead. I have not seen Choke, but I have also not read the novel, so I wouldn't know how they relation between novel and film would be.
