I love both. Of course the book is always better but the movie is great too. What you think about this? Do you like the most a movie or the book?

well unfortunately i don't have the patience to sit and read any more and life keeps me busy,but i enjoy watching a good movie and i have no favorite types. I like a movie that has a good plot to unfold and a action move type movie. Well just about any type is good. to me movies put it into reality for you seeings how i don't have time to fantasize about it these days.

I feel that if the book is good and the movie is a bad adaption then it is an insult to the author. If it is a real good adaption then sometimes it is great to have the movie bring my favorite parts of the book to life.

I feel the book had special passages but the movie brought those passages to life and it was so cool to see it on screen. Great book!

I like books better; they allow you to still have some imagination about what the characters are like. I've been disappointed in a lot of movies due to actor choices and things like that.

The movie is usually a condensed version of the book, so I really prefer to get the whole story and read the book! The book is so much more in depth!

Actually I love both. When I am home I use to watch movie and i love horror compare to love story. I read books before I go to bed and sometimes when I am alone here in school.

I prefer the book mainly bcoz they give an indepth of the story whereas the movie is sometimes not executed very well. ~Pinks~

If the book is based on the movie then I tend to prefer the movie, but if the movie is based on the book then I tend to prefer the book. I like the original basically.

Hi Teka44! I have not read any popular novels which were translated to movies. But I really do enjoy them when I have watch them in the movies. Maybe I just don't have the time to continuously read a novel or I'm not really into book reading.

I have to say the movie was no where near how good the book was. There was no way the book could live up to the book becaues of when the movie was made and in the movie it was made in like England and the book takes place in USA so yeah they changed to many things in the movie for it to be as good as the book.
