  1. The book! The movie always either tries to take liberties with the plot or leaves details I find important out.

  2. It can go either way sometimes I enjoy the movie for what it is if I haven't read the book and vice versa.

  3. I like both, but I always like the book more since there is more detail and usually more about the history of the characters and so on!

  4. I usually read the book and then watch the movie. I love the book as it's deeper but I also love movies and the atmosphere they create through light and sound. Thank you!

  5. I prefer the book. Sometimes the movies doesn't have the feel like "emotions or angst" as in a book.

  6. More times than not, I prefer the book. It is more detailed than the movie.

  7. The book for sure - a story gives a much better experience when YOU are the one imagining everything. :D

  8. The book, everytime. I've never really understood the appeal of films, why invest yourself in characters for just 90 minutes? With a book it takes longer and you have a certain element of control.

  9. I like both a lot. I need the book and if there's a movie made then its fantastic :)

  10. The book.
    But I tend to like both because I look at them as different things, and not an immitation

  11. I usually always like the book more because they can't put every detail in the movie sadly enough.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I always prefer books to a movie because reading a book you can imagine it the way you want to, whereas the movie is one persons own ideas so it may not always be what you were thinking of and it's frustrating when they leave out important bits in the book

    ReplyDelete
  13. I prefer books because the story in the book, is never compromised because of any irregularities in the frame, acting, background, poor effects...because you imagine the whole scenario inside your head, and it's never boring and it'll never disappoint you.

  14. I usually prefer the books more, but sometimes the movie shows different interpretations that are interesting to watch.

    ReplyDelete
  15. So far the only movie I prefer to the book is Mrs. Winterbourne. Which is based on the book I Married a Dead Man.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It actually depends. The books are always more descriptive and you can always have your own images in your head whereas a movie is someone else's interpretation of it. However I must confess that having read Lord of the Rings trilogy, it only made more sense when I saw the movies

    ReplyDelete
  17. I always want to read the book first and then watch the movie. I usually like and get more out of the book, because they add so much to the movie!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. The book....always! Although I think Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter & A Game of Thrones have equalled their book versions.

    ReplyDelete
  19. book, more interesting

    ReplyDelete
  20. The book, they change so much for films.

  21. so far i always prefered the book, the film too often change important details

    ReplyDelete
  22. I always like the book better. The movie can never include everything that is in the book!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The book. There are a lot of things you would never know by only watching the movies. Books gives you precious information.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I usually always prefer the book better. Because a book can have so much more detail than a movie can.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I usually prefer the book, because too often the movie people don't always pick the right person for the part. That can keep me from enjoying the experience.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I usually prefer the book to the movie as the movie is 90 minutes and the book can last several days

    ReplyDelete
  27. I prefer the book, you get more details and more emotions from it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I prefer the book, there'd always be more information and insight but adaptations can be fun too.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I prefer the book, there's more detail xx

    ReplyDelete
  30. I usually prefer the movie when it's more realistic to the eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The book, I've yet to find a movie that has done the story enough justice

    ReplyDelete
  32. There is more details in the book, so definetly the book!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I prefer the book because there is always more detail to enrich the story.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like both and I always give the movie a chance because you never know if something is good till you try it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think that in most cases the movie just adds a little to the book visually.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I usually prefer the book, because a lot of has to be cut to make it into a movie, and also it's easy to make a good book into a yet another FX flick.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I usually prefer the book as I can interpret the words whereas in the film it's the director's/actors' interpretation of the words that I get to see.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I prefer the book because it's rare for the movie to be better than the book. Also the book describes feelings and what the characters are thinking in the moment and you just get that with movies. You have to guess with facial expressions and body language and sometimes the actor doesn't do a great job.

  39. I prefer the book because I can imagine it myself.

  40. I prefer the movie because it seems more real to me.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like to read the book first, because I can imagine the characters the way the author describes them. If I see the movie first, all I picture is the actors.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love both equally. I like reading the book before watching the movie to see if my imagination matches others.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love the both. Because they tell the same story in two different ways.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the book better because it can go into more details than the movie can, at times :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I almost always like the book better because the plot has additional parts because books are simply longer. However, I think I liked the movie The Hours better than the novel upon which the script was based. Sorry Michael Cunningham! Thanks for hosting this great opportunity! Cheers, Kara S

  46. I always prefer the book because in the case of movies most of the interesting scenes are left out due to lack of budget or the movie length etc etc. Prime examples are Harry Potter, Divergent series, The Maze Runner series among others which have much better books, in my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  47. I usually prefer the book because it allows me to create the characters as I see them. I love both the book and movie of "The Bridges of Madison County"!!!

    Thanks for giving.

  48. I usually prefer whichever came first, because that established the story and characters in my head. There are exceptions, though: Kevin Canty's novelization of ROUNDERS is excellent, and I always felt that the movie version of THE VIRGIN SUICIDES was kinder to Lux and Trip than the book.

  49. Of course I prefer the books ...first of all ..I can touch them ..secondly ..I love that imaginary world that I enter when I read books ...I can read books all the time ...too bad we have to do other stuff too

    ReplyDelete
  50. I prefer the books because that way I can create my own movie in my head. I hate that I don't have as much time to read anymore but I still prefer books.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I usually prefer the book because it is more detailed and allows me to use my own imagination.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I usually prefer the book. I'm such a book reader, not so much movies.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I usually prefer the book, because I can create the characters and the set in my mind, and imagine everything in my own way. But I also enjoy movies, and it is fun to watch other versions of the characters and story I have read and are created in films :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I usually prefer the book, because it stays true to the story. I also like when I imagine the characters in my head, coz they don't disappoint me like the actors who play them do.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Almost all the time, I prefer the book as it feels more immersive and my imagination can go wild! :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I prefer books. I barely watch TV. I can't explain the feelings... it's just like that.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I always go for the books. As good as the movie is, they can never put 200/300+ pages in 2/3 hours, latest example is Me Before You, only about 40% of the book was shown in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I usually prefer the book because I can visualize everything the way I want it to be :) Thanks for the chance to win!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I prefer the book because it has more details

    ReplyDelete
  60. I prefer the book because your imagination adds another dimension

    ReplyDelete
  61. I almost always prefer the book to the movie, although there have been some very good adaptations (Lord of the Rings trilogy being one that comes to mind). But the movie can never live up to the world I imagine in my head when I read.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I generally prefer the book, because they have to cut out so much to make the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I usually prefer the book because it's way more detailed :)

  64. I only entered your
    Books To Movies Giveaway.
    It would be great to win a book that has been
    made into a movie worth $14.
    In response to your question of
    Do you usually prefer the movie or the book and why?
    I prefer the movie because i usually don't find
    out about the book until it's a movie.
    If i enjoyed the movie i will then read the book.
    I don't go to the bookstore very often
    but i am always trying to win books.
    Thank you for having this giveaway.

  65. depends on the books I love Stephen Kings books and the adaptations other books like the maze runner I liked the movie better

    ReplyDelete
  66. I usually prefer whichever version I have been exposed to first. They are never spot on with each other. It really depends.

    ReplyDelete
  67. To be honest I think it's probably whichever one I have come across first - though I would lean towards the book. You can never perfectly transpose a book to film, but that's not to say the film versions can't be as good. Difficult one!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I tend to like books just because I'm not a huge movie watcher

    ReplyDelete
  69. I usually prefer the book. I like the imagined detail to what the movie ends up with.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I usually like the book better because you get to know the characters more
