i like the books better especially after seeing the 3rd movie.i had to explain to my brothers what was actually going on since the movie only showed bits and pieces of the story they didn't even show how harry potter threw of the imperious curse which was important in my opinion.(for when he fights voldemort)

It was the 4th movie when Harry threw off the imperius curse and fought Voldemort. The 3rd movie was when they time travelled and saved Sirius. Just and FYI.

I love both, but I would definitely say the books are better hands down. There are many more details in the books that don't make it to the big screen. Also the movies get twisted and things happen out of order just to get the details fitted into the movies.

The movies are fantastic, but I prefer the books, or even better, the audiobooks. I heard the first 4, read the next two, and eagerly await #7. :)

for me.. books are much better than in the movie if the movie is taken from the book.... but it depends on how the movie had been delivered.. right? for such a movie fanatic.. i think so. movies much better than books.. but for me i learn more reading books than in movies....

i think the book is better some important points are not there in the movie because they cannot copy what is exactly written in the book.

I like the books, and the movies. But, I think a comparison is almost like comparing apples and oranges. To me, although the movies were based on the books, and they did ok on making it follow the book, there still was an entirely different feel to the books, vs. the movies.

I'm torn...I love both the movies and the books. The movies make everything that I have read just come together. The books go into a little more detail and while at the movies I find myself thinking that left out certain parts that should have been there and so forth. Wait, now I think I'm even more confused...LOL

I think that the books are SO much better. The movies cut out a lot to fit into a certain timeframe, which I get since the average person doesn't want to spend 4 hours in the movie theater, but it causes them to lose a lot of the depth that makes the books great.

For me, the book is much better than the movie because some of the interesting part in the book is not in the movie like the Goblet of Fire. In the book they discussed the task but in the movie it's limited. I love reading all Harry Potter books. I'm definitely looking forward for the next book of J.K. Rowlings

well i think that the book is better than the movies. movies tend to be shortcut and not satisfactory. i prefer to read books and let my imagination wander.i think that books really take you to another place for a long period of time compared to movies.. oh well that is my opinion and i stand by it.. my friends too prefer books than movies..

I personally think the movie. I am not a fan of reading books and this may be why I like movies better. Get me a soda, bag of popcorn and a cozy couch or chair at the cinema and I am all set to go to watch a really good movie. Books - they just don't do it for me.
