Prompt: Do you prefer the books or the film?
I definitely prefer the books. When a book is turned into a movie you often lose so much information about the story. Or the condense the story by changing characters. I have even seen where they take several books and shove them into one movie. It can be awesome sometimes to see characters that you have built up in your own head from reading acting out the things you loved reading. However, there is a level of disappointment when you have this world and characters that you have realized in your own mind and the movie does not do them justice. If there is a movie coming out based on a book I always try to read it first.
