‘BOOKS’ and ‘MOVIES’, 2 different things but also the most common ailments which help us in refreshing our mind. To be frank, comparing books with movies or the other way round is not really fair. Everyone has their individual choice and enjoy the same. Books or movies debate is a neverending discussion which should be addressed.
Movies are fun to watch, but if the story is from a book that you have already read it is then that you realize that how much the movie is leaving. No matter how entertaining the movie is, it just represents the tip of the iceberg, it’s the submerged portion that you’ve missed (and if you think those are the minute details that don’t need much description, you definitely need to talk to a book lover-they will have an elaborative answer).
Every person has their own taste and I have tried my best to remain unbiased to both of these. Know which one do you prefer and why.
Why prefer movies?
1. Watching movies does not require any sort of hard work or strain
It is actually true and sometimes all that you need is not to think anything and just watch some movie that will help freshen your mind. It’s a therapy that everyone needs.
2. Does not require much imagination
Because most of it is already displayed right in front of you (and this does not mean that people who like movies lack imagination).
3. The Graphic world
It is like a stimulation to your brain which helps you expand your horizon.
4. Easy to understand
Like I said before, it does not require too much use of your brain.
5. The songs
Then there are the songs which I must agree help us lighten up the mood.
6. Get all the family members/friends together
It’s the movies that get all the family members/friends together from all the work that keeps them tied up. Many families/friends have this custom of watching movies together every week and it is actually the best thing that the movies offer.
Why prefer books?
1. Movies have lots of alterations
Alterations like the deleted scenes or added sentences which honestly none of the readers usually appreciate.
2. Books help strengthen your imagination
They create an imaginary world which none of us wants to escape and want more. You actually end up being more than happy in this world that you create.
3. Books have the ability to stir up different emotions in you
You will find yourself laughing, crying, getting mad or sad and this is how you know that how great the book actually is.
4. They help you look at the world in a different way
It makes you raise questions about things and change your perspective to everything that you’ve been listening to from people around you (which I agree most of the movies do too).
5. Description of the characters or the story
It is the mere description of the characters or the story that make you fall in love with the book. Have you ever wondered how one book can make all the hair on your body stand straight? And it is the depth of emotions you feel after reading a book that it leaves you with the want for more.
6. Best Companion
One of the best things that a book does is fill the right gaps in your life that will never make you feel alone. They become the companion that you always wish for.
