Some people believe that it’s much easier to watch the movie version than to read the book. And sometimes, movie-goers have no idea that the film was based from a novel until they hear people talking about whether or not the movie was better than the book.
While it is a lot easier to sit in the movie theater for more or less two hours with your popcorn and soda, some recommend reading the book first.
