1.  How Green Was My Valley (Penguin Modern Classics) by Richard Llewellyn
The list author says:
  "Yes, I know, but I think I could do a better job than John Ford - I've actually been to Wales, after all. A tough one as it's all very internal, but Anthony Hopkins as the older Huw is a must."

4.  A Study in Scarlet (Penguin Classics) by Arthur Conan Doyle
