brijesh_marand,

 

May I humbly suggest changing your question from:

Which novel do you think deserves the most to be adapted most?

 

To

Which novel do you think most deserves to be adapted?

 

Although the first sentence is grammatical, repeating the word "most" makes the sentence sound somewhat awkward.
