Many books have movies as well to name a few: Hunger Games, Divergent, etc... but now the REAL question is - which are better?

Books or Movies?

Both have their place and can be phenomenal when done correctly. As for building strength of imagination, I think books tend to be superior.

Books are better than movies because you have a wider variety and your not wasting money on something that turns out to be bad.

I think books are better because your imagination is stronger than the image that can be created by a film. In essence, one creates their own movie in their head. Books are more personal. Everyone has their history and memories, so they envision the characters through their own personal mirror. That is why I prefer books. I like to watch a movie only after I have read the book to see how it compares. It usually falls short.

It depends on the book and the movie.if the movie is based off of the book then it just ruins it so much a book can be completely ruined because of the movie failed to create the same sense of immersion and feeling like its the same thing even (cough cough) Maze runner (cough cough) end of discussion.

Books can let you imagine the setting or events happening in the story. They are also more detailed than movies because movies sometimes leave out some important details.

Books. Easy. There have been way too many movies where they just don't hold a candle to the books. I have yet to watch a movie, then read a book and say...."eh the movie is better."

Whatever said and done, what is able to make a person happy to a great extent is books. The happiness and enjoyment that you get by reading books is far more than that of movies. True enough that we have to move with technology. Yet to gather knowledge and develop your literary rate the best medium is books.

At the same time books intensely develop your imagination. On the other hand movies show you everything and the person has nothing to imagine which I think is not so good.

Books are way better than movies because what you create is only limited by your imagination and not a budget given for a film. Books can take place anywhere, any time and have as many characters as you want. Films always need to follow a budget you can't have this and that because it costs too much. If reading hurts your eyes, get reading glasses or just pick a comic book, you'll have all the images you want and less reading to do and the story will come across very well.

I agree. Books are better than movies because you can use your imagination. Also, Movies are a mind numbing activity, but books on the other hand is a great way to entertain yourself while training your brain to be more efficient.

In my opinion, books are way better. Movies are better for if you're in a hurry, but books are able to keep you obsessed and trapped for days and maybe even a month. If it's a good book, you aren't going to want to put it down. You will wish the book will never end. It eventually will, but it will last way longer than a movie.

Books are really better. You can carry it with you and find out really interesting details. You can even get help from books like how to cook or how to write something like https://qrius.com/prepare-winning-speech-convince/ for your career or school. So books totally wins

I believe books are better because it goes into real detail and could help your imagination. Not only that, books are very calming and relaxing, and just better in general.

I think movies are better than books because its very interesting to see.Sure reading is good for you and sometimes the reader might fall asleep or lose it page sometimes.Movies might inspire people to be a actress or director.I think movies are little better than books

Movies move at a faster pace and you can really understand what's happening without focus as much. Whereas if you want to read a book, you have to really picture every little detail and focus very hard.

i think movies are better, they're more entertaining and they are very interesting. They are also better because, it gives you pictures and you can listen to whats going on. Books are also quite boring and don't give you the courage or wanting to keep reading.

I believe Movies would be best for visual learners like me most people cant learn through being teached with just explaining some people need to see what their learning Movies about books that teach important lessons and history about the subject. Movies show you events from books people cant really imagine.
