Today there are lot of films made based on a book, the question is, what is better, to see the movie?, or to read the book?

I personally prefer the movie because I never really have the time to read a full book.

I prefer to read the book. It seems that most times a lot goes on in the book that doesn't go into the movie. Sometimes, I'll see the movie first and enjoy it but I don't even bother to go see a movie if I've all ready read the book.

The see the movie is easy way to know what the book about is,but almost all the time after i read the book i find the movie vry poor near comparing the book.So the movie finish faster but the book is better.

Usually I prefer the book simply because you get more information about the characters and the places in the story. I prefer the Harry Potters books though I do like the movies very much. There's just so much more information in the books. But on the other hand, I prefer the Jurassic Park movies to the books. The movie is a lot different than the books and I just like the movies better. There was another movie, Congo, that I preferred over the book. The book was almost a completely different story and I liked the movie version the best. So I have to say that sometimes I prefer the movie and sometimes I prefer the book. It just depends on who is doing the movie version.

Personally, I prefer the book to the movie in almost every instance. However, it is not a good idea to read the book before you watch the movie if you can help it because the movie is usually nowhere near as good, and leaves much of the story out. Happy reading, or watching, whatever you prefer!

The book is always better than the movie. I've read several books that were turned into movies and the movie is always somewhat disappointing.
