Well, this is one topic which my friends and I constantly argue on, so I just wanted to know what all of you think. Many famous books have been made into movies, right from great classics to popular fiction.
We've had Harry Potter,which was made into a hugely successful movie, the same with Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice which was made into both a recent movie,and a TV series.Even Indian author books have been made into movies,notable and the most recent being Jhumpa Lahiri's "The Namesake".
So, do you prefer to read the book,or wtach the movie? Do you feel that the magic onscreen transports you into that world or will you stick with the book? What do you think?

When one reads a book, one forms one's own unique opinion of that book. When one watches a movie, it is the directors opinion and understanding of the book that one is viewing... one then creates a second hand opinion of a book rather than forming one's own... for me it is the book and always the book! Movies are by the by...
