why to read book if you can watch a movie



Let’s talk about the books vs movies

If you love books, you’ll likely
emphatically agree that the book version of any story is superior to the film
version. So much of what makes a book or a story come alive on the page is the
use of figurative language and other word play.

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet,
technically a play, is often lost to modern audiences because the language just
doesn’t translate on screen.
We can hear the cadence
of the dialogue, but we can’t fully appreciate the consistent pattern
throughout each line of the play, descriptions and all. But what I think is
sometimes books are better than movies. Books can let you imagine the events
happening in the story. They are also more detailed than movies because movies
sometimes leave out some important details. Being a bookworm, I have
experienced that sometimes the characters shown in a movie are way opposite
than they are described in a book.

Imagination plays a very important role
when we speak of books and movies. Reading allows us to imagine the situation,
environment, characters and their personality. Basically, movies are made from
our imagination.
Reading does improve a person’s creativity
due to imagination: because you are using your brain while reading, your
concentration and focus levels improve. On the other hand, movies leave viewers
with little imagination, but they focus on visual effects.

Now if I talk about movie lovers, A point
that is worth noting is time consumption. A lot of people argue about this
topic. Reading a book from cover to cover takes a lot of time; of course it
depends on the book, the writing style and the wording.
Entertainment Value is a part of a programme whose goal is to entertain or
attract the audience’s attention. Books do that by enticing the reader by
specific details that engage you. Some people find books more entertaining due
to this reason. A Several people who both read books and watch movies claim
that they were disappointed after seeing the movie as they had a higher
expectations set up when they previously read the book.
you read a book, you might take a day, a month or several months to finish it.
You read at your own pace and in your own time.  People often complain that certain characters
or events from a book aren’t in the movie. This upsets them because that
missing part might have had a special resonance with them.

The primary culprit when it comes to
understanding why books are better than movies is your imagination. When you
read a book, mental images of the characters, how the characters sound, how the
landscapes look and what the world is like is created by you, the reader. At
last ,a movie will never be as good as the book, because the book is your
world, while the movie is someone else’s.
