#托福作文咩第 29 期 Day 5#
With the development of entertainment, now there are full of various interesting amusement project. Some people claim that reading the book would be better before they watch the movie, while others hold adverse ideas. As far as I am concerned, I prefer to watch the movie before I read the book. My viewpoint is based on the following reasons and example.
The first benefit is that watching movies are more efficient than reading books. Due to intense competition of test, the time is pressing and a book which was made into movie must be long. However I have no time to read a long book. Watching a movie, I could save much time to prepare the TOEFL test. The Great Gatsby, for example, is a long novel which was written in 1925. If I chose to read it, I would spend one month, even longer, on reading it over. But I watch the movie which is based on The Great Gatsby just costs me few hours.
In addition, movies which is full of ample visual and auditory impact could bring me diverse sensory feeling. Different from authors, filmmakers could take advantage of multiple actions and music. As we know, moving pictures with music always let people feeling exciting. Taking the Lord of the Rings for example, watching movies in the cinema, I am amazed by the wonderful pictures and inspiring music. It is no doubt that the watching movies is more interesting than reading books. Because single word is put limit on expression of story.
Admittedly, reading books before we watch the movies do have some advantages. For example, we could acquire more details from books and know more about author’s intention. Thus, watching movies, we could assure that we would not miss any vital information. However, watching movies, for most people, could express details and author’s intention directly through picture and music, too.
From what has been discussed above, we can draw an exact conclusion that reading book is not my style. On the one hand, we have to spend lots of time on reading book, which is not efficient. On the other hand, when we read a book, we cannot obtain diverse sensory feeling.
