The translation problem is from the book format to the movie (90 to 150 minute length) format. They should go back to the serials like Buck Rogers that played in the theater for 30 minutes before the feature movie. There would be lots of cliffhangers to work with as the producers worked their way agonizingly through the books. Or (heaven forbid?) turn it into a television series. Play a chunk of it each week, like Masterpiece Theater until they've done it the way it needs to be done.
