Books that are impossible to film (and they haven't tried yet)

I'm currently reading "The Reality Dysfunction", a science fiction novel by Peter F. Hamilton ... and there's just no way they could film this, either as a movie, a series of movies, a mini-series on TV, or a full fledge series. Even if they strip out the constant flash backs, half the story-lines, all the sex... the very core of the plot is something that is just unfilmable, because there's just no visual way I can imagine you could tell the story of what's really going on. Any attempt would be an incoherent mess. Which is strange, because the book is really good... but it lets you get into the heads of the characters, and know about "action" that is invisible to any eye. What other books are completely unfilmable? And by that, I mean, they've never even tried, and probably never will!
