HEY THERE ARE LOTS OF BOOKS THAT ARE BEING MADE INTO MOVIES RIGHT? WHICH VERSION OF THE STORY DO U PREFER? THE ORIGINAL BOOKS OR THE SLIGHTLY MODIFIED MOVIES? I PREFER READING THE BOOKS ANYDAY, SO THT I CAN GO TO THE MOVIES AND CRITICIZE THEM.. I DONT LIKE IT WEN DIRECTORS CHANGE THE STORY LINE SO AS TO MAKE IT MORE ACTION-ORIENTED!! WHICH DO U PREFER?

hey that's a tough one for me! lol! i'm a movie-goer but i'm a bookworm too... if i had to choose, i guess it would be movies because watching is more entertaining than reading hundreds of lines in a book. 'cant wait for harry potter and the order of the phoenix! ^^

well to me it matters if the book or the movie came out first if the book came out first and i read it first ide prolly prefer that but if the movie came out and then the book came out ( very rare lol) but yea or if the book was blah thats when i htink the movie would be better!

I prefer books, you provide your own imagination, which you can view the scenery, action, etc., when a movie is not sure he will be faithful to that book and "artistic impression" that a director can make a very loud message that alter writer wanted to convey through the book.
