WYR book or movie?

If there was a movie based on a book, would you rather watch the movie or read the book?

I prefer to read the book first and then watch the movie.

  • I like to read the book first. Usually the book ends up being a lot better, and I want to make my own image of what the author meant before I view someone else's interpretation. Otherwise, I tend to just think of the movie while reading.

  • I always read the book first, you get more of the story that way.

  • I read the book first. Then I get mad when I watch the movie and it is a mere shadow of the book, especially if it is a good book with a good ending. (Dear John, My Sister's Keeper)
