With limitations. I would hope that they would first come to truly understand the book and the story, grasp the layers and the depth of these authors in presenting a good old fashioned story that just happens to be one to give you chills. Both of these have great use of character and mood in a story. "Ammie, Come Home" was made into a awful television film in the 1970's, I think the cast just walked on the set and read the script and five minutes later they filmed it. No understanding of the story, a lot of cheesy aspects, and little to no suspense. "Lightening" - just grabs from the first lines....like most authors Koontz has had bad luck getting his stories translated with understanding and vision into a film media.
