Which do you like better?  Although the movies are great, I really like the books better b/c they are what started it all (obviously) and the movies don't cover everything the books do.  Yet, the movies are entertaining...let me know what you think.

Books are my opinion. Movies dont give the dept and detail..nor can we njoi Ron-Hermoinee clashes as they are in books. True choco, our imagination is sure to be used in books.

But Movies have given us the acting-Charcters to imagine on..(Harry,fred,Ron..etc)..which books couldnt! I prefer books..and also movies...to see HP somewhere else than to imagination.

The books hooked me in the first place...If it weren't for the books, I would have never watched the movies.

Well, I actually thought that the books were childish so I didn't want to read them initially.

Then one day I just saw them in the library and I was bored so I decided to check out the 1st one...My plan was to read the 1st chapter and then do some homework...

No prizes for guessing that I didn't do my homework until I finished the whole book.LOL

The movies are enjoyable to watch because of the effects, but I love the books because of the details and extra info on other characters.

Due to no access to the books till i get from my sis, i say movies cause the reason i got hooked on Harry Potter was the movie as at first when i heard both the books i just ignored it ! The interest clicked when i watched the movie as i am a keen lover of movies or novels which have magic and adventure in it.

Although i agree that books have more info then the movies but in this case i got hooked on Harry Potter because of the movie.

Cheers,

Rifhat
