  • Read the book - more descriptive and I like to picture it in my head instead of someone else telling me what it is suppose to look like / sound like etc.

  • usually i would rather read the book because books generally contain more detail that is edited out to make a 2 hr movie. Also, screenwriters sometimes change the story so much, it doesn't come close to what the book was like.

  • Mommy of many, I know what you mean. I love the Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson and in the books Lindsey Boxer is a blonde and when they made it into a tv series, the actress is a brunette and looked very different than what I had imagined. Although, I loved the actress and the series, it was hard to watch the show because of all the differences.

  • Read the book, I am more comfortable with a book. I like to read before I go to sleep.

  • Book.. They are always way better then the movie. But I would end up watching the movie to see how someone else pictured things.

  • Read the book. There is always more detail in the book. Plus you get the character's thoughts when you read the book, something that movies just don't convey very well. There are usually more subplots in books, too. And there is more character development. Books aren't constrained by time limits like movies are.

  • Book! I've never seen a movie adaptation of a book that I like. I really want to see The Lovely Bones. But I love that book so much, I'm scared the movie will just ruin it!

  • Watch a movie lol, I don't have time to read. I can't remember the last time I read a book, I think it was like 5 years ago or so.
