Based On The Book


Books and films both tell stories, but what we want from a book can be different from what we want from a movie. Is this true for you? If so, what’s the difference between a book and a movie?

For me, books are very different entertainment type than movies. Movies (to me) are usually for short term distraction, a little visual party for my brain. I have rarely found a movie made from a book (that I had read) which I enjoyed as much as the book. Books offer so much more exercise for my brain, as I create my own picture in my head of what the author is trying to convey. There is just so much more depth that can be achieve in a book. Now, that is not to say I am giving up my movie addiction anytime soon.

So how do you feel about books and movies?

Some places are like people: some shine and some don’t.

  1. I love both…..I am an avid reader, but I also love a good movie…However I am with you about the movie book thing….very few movies do justice to the books…..

  2. I never watch a movie of a book I’ve read or plan on reading. They are never the same, and most times I just get ticked off! Like you, I prefer to see the book in my own head. Most days, I’d take a good book over a great movie!

  3. I love both, it depends on my mood. 😉

    I love both also, but hate hate hate when they make a movie out of a book and leave out the best parts. I try to either read or watch, not both because I hate to be disappointed or have one ruin the other.

  5. I find it hard to find books that catch my attention. My theory is always, if I don’t find it interesting in the first chapter, I give up on it. But the ones that I do, well those are the ones that that I don’t put down for three days straight!

  6. I prefer a book, because than I can imagine the characters and world as I hope the writer wanted them to be and not the way some producer makes them be.
    Whenever I know a movie is based on a book, I rty to read the book also so I know the full story and not the edited version.

  7. The Shining. Great as a book AND a film!

  8. I like it best when a movie fits the book, meeting my expectations – though it’s rare.

  9. Hello! I love to read books! then I love to watch movies of books! It is interesting to feel the difference the author of the book and directed by the film.Good post!

  14. Piers Morgan needs to be reminded that Americans fought two wars (Rev War and War of 1812) against his country to have freedom to govern themselves, including the right to bear arms. If British laws were so great we would still be singing “God Save The Queen” instead of the Star Spangled Banner. If Piers loves UK laws so much, I say go back home, Brit!
