Books vs Movies: Which One Do You Like Better?

With all the books getting adapted into film, do they end up disappointing you or are you happy someone took time to bring your favorite characters to life?

It's not exactly something new, a book getting adapted into film, but we're curious. Do you end up hating the adaptation or finding yourself falling in love with the story a whole new way because you've seen it unfold onscreen?

With news of Pop Fiction's She's Dating The Gangster inking a deal with Star Cinema—popular love team Kathniel even playing the leads—and the epic trailer of John Green's The Fault In Our Stars hitting the web this week, we're asking ourselves the same question. Is the book always the better version of the story, or are there some movies that really do turn out better than we expect?

Which do you prefer: books or their movie adaptations?

Books definitely. I like my imagination better.
Movies! Plus points if I like the actors they cast in it.
It really depends. Some are okay, but the others should just stay on the pages of a book.
