Some of the best movies I have ever watched were adapted from books, for instance A Clockwork Orange, Cold Mountain. Schindler’s List etc. However, I have not read these books. The Lord of the Rings and The Harry Potter series are good movies, nevertheless, I have never been interested to read these books. I have a copy of The Great Gatsby but I have not read this novel, nonetheless, when the the Movie The Great Gatsby was released I went to the theater. I guess, I prefer to watch movies instead of reading books.

Id rather watch the movie than read the book but you can always read the book while outlining the speaking lines of the characters of the book put into movie. They're are the same lines.

I read the book and saw the movies for some of you mention. The book is almost always better than the movie it seems.

I have to say I truly enjoy reading more than tv or movies. Im not sure why that is. I feel lkke movies adapted from books are usually never the same orr as good as the books!

I have learned through some of the theses movies have more information in them then the actual movie so you get to see what theses may have more of I like to see if the movie is very much more than the book.
