    The book is always better than movie. There’s a reason that this is true. If you read the book first, you’ve already created the picture in your mind. Your pictures are the right pictures. Now some big shot Hollywood director comes along and shares his vision of what the pictures look like, and it’s nothing like your pictures. He gets it all wrong.

    The director leaves out some of the scenes that you loved. He takes some artistic liberties and changes things to make the picture flow. He even adds characters that don’t appear anywhere in the book. Even your friends say that the movie isn’t as good as the book.

    In my own opinion, books are always better than the movies. Not all that were written in the books are shown in the movies, only selected scenes. If you want to know all the details in a certain story, reading the books is way better. Additionally, your imagination is different from the imaginations of the directors. Every individual has his/her own way of analyzing things, maybe your imaginations are way better than the directors. The sad part is, sometimes directors portrays the scenes differently from what is written in the books because for them, their portrayal is much better than the author's imagination.

    Movies made by the novels and true stories and real happens and such as more but these stories and happens are wrote in the books, so the books are always better than the movies.

    As a fan, you're probably likely to gravitate towards the novel more than the movie interpretation. This is because as a producer you're limited by time when using a medium such as film. With a novel, a writer can produce as much content as one would like to include. Whether that be to create more of atmosphere, more character development, etc. Where as in a medium such as film you are limited by your overall length in movie time.

    Books allow you to know what the characters are actually thinking..
    Books allow you to get to know the characters better...
    Books allow you to experience the story as the author intended it...
    Books can stay with you forever...

    The book is always better than the movie. But, the movie can make the story of the book bring to life. The book has more detailed scenarios than the movie. When you read, you can imagine and picture out what the book is all about, like having the book made into a movie in your mind. The book gives you everything you needed to know because it is more specific and gives information about the point of views of different characters in the book. In other words, books will make your mind full because of what you've read while a movie will make you hungry for more because you needed more than what the movie gave.
