Movies or books of the same story always caused discussion for the audience. Beyond any doubt, it is possible to nominate great examples for both. Let’s discuss which one is a better way of conveying a story!
Movies of the stories from books
Watching movies and reading books provide us a unique experience and satisfaction. While the books improve our imagination and give us the opportunity to learn lots of details about the characters, scenes, etc., movies provide visual pleasure with sound effects and might ignore some parts in order to focus on the main action.
Reading before watching it
Although this situation might not be a problem for some viewers, it can be a big issue for those who read the book before its movie. In this case, most of the readers complain about the shallowness of the movie. They feel disappointed since their expectations are not met.
Well, there are lots of movies whose scenarios are based on a story from a book. Furthermore, we can see that there are several Tv shows based on a story from books. One of the most popular ones is the Game of Thrones. We all wait for the new chapters of the show, but some of us are more interested in the books. While reading the books can give you the advantage of learning every little detail of the future events that are not shown in the Tv before, it can also cause you to lose some of your friends if you ever tell them about these parts (spoiler!) by mistake.
