In the wake of increasing dual demands of spirit and sense, in contemporary society, there is a fever for many filmmakers to create some movies according to books. Thus, facing those films, people's reaction varies apparently. Some of them tend to read the book before watching the movie, However, other people are more willing to watch the movie before reading the book. As far as I am concerned, I would go for the latter suggestion. I am going to elaborate my point of view in following paragraphs.
In the first place, there is nothing more convenient and time-saving than knowing about a book by watching its movies. I mean, most of us, ordinary people, read novels or watch movies just for entertainment, which could lighten our mood when confronting endless tasks. It is known to all, modern people's time is always pressing. But reading books usually cost more time that watching movies. Taking I, myself, for example, 'the shawshank redemption' is my favorite movie. I watched the movie as soon as it was released. Because of being impressed by its interlocking plots, cliff hanging scenes and complex relationship between characters, I decided to read its novel. As a result, a month later, I gave up, since there are many details in the book and I didn't have enough time to read it.
From then on, I felt that watch movie might be the better way to know about a book, if we won't invest a lot of time.
In addition, the experience of watching movies is more splendid than reading books. With the development of technology, there exists many special effects and beautiful background music in a good movie, which makes up an audio-visual feast. In contrast, the process of reading book is tedious and dull relatively.
For example, my father is a history buff. He always devotes his spare time to reading historical books. But once he told me that he was attracted by‘Brave Heart’ , a movie talking about the history of England. Thanks to its dedicate frame and interlocking plot, my father shifts his way to learn about history from reading books to watching movies.
Of course, I am not saying that there is no merit for reading books. In the contrast, reading the original could be a good way to learn about the thought of writer. However, I think, most people only care about whether the story of movie is wonderful, since they spend their time and money just in order to have a break. Therefore, the debate about which deserves appreciation at first does not make sense.
To recap, based on what I have discussed above, I can draw a safe conclusion that watching movies could be a better way instead of reading books. It is because watching movies not only brings us a premium experience, but unwinds us from endless reading meterials.
