    Reading the books
    Books bring you closer to the characters and theres more story in them than in movies. Movies add and take away parts

    Well in books you cant really see the physical characteristics of the person. Plus you can see more emotion and more action sceens.
    Books- I am sad : Movies- You see how sad they really are
    Books- There was an explosion : Movies- Boom

    I prefer books :rolleyes: they make u wonder about things.. & u get to imagine how everything looks, from ur own view.. Not someone elses :D

    Oh yeah.. & the book is always better than the movie bc the movies always twist things around & leave things out :p

    book first then the movie so i can laugh at how stupidly put together the movie was
    and will if you dont think you can see what happens with a book then you dont pay attention when i read i can picture everything perfectly in my mind and just to prove movies are horibe compared to the book read the eragon book then watch the movie they screwed it up so bad that they couldnt make another one if they wanted to

    ok so will you think that just because they use a certain actor in a movie that thats how the character looks? no its not. you can create how they look in your mind. and the movies usually suck

    Not sure... I love to visualize things in my head to make it how I want it to be for books. As for movies, I like to see what is actually going on, not guessing on books. I'm kinda in the middle for both.

    I read the books first, so I can see how many things the movie drops out. Like Percy Jackson movie, they totally changed up the whole thing!!

    If I have a chance, book first. Book always lets us use our imaginations. But I I have watched the movie, I don't bother to read the book. It will ruin it. And I could never develop my imagination anymore since it's been 'contaminated' my the movie. In other words, if I have watched the movie, I'd never have a chance to read the book (or it's myself who prevent it).

    books are alot better, you can actually picture stuff instead of some director saying what everything is

    For some I like to read and others like LORD OF THE RINGS I had to read it first and the movie was way better because the movie is basically the book with only a few parts missing but for others I just want to watch the movie.
