One thought on “Which was better the movie or the book?

  1. The only books I can see here that I have read and seen the movie is Harry potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Holes.

    Harry Potter- I think the Harry Poter book was better than the movie.
    I like reading and Harry Potter books just keep my breath in for some reason. The books are more exciting.

    Holes- I haven’t actually read the book but in year 6 the techer read the book to us, it was a bit boring but thats because I like reading the book myself. So in Hole’s case the movie was better.

    There are alot of thing here that i have seen the movie of but not the book. I’ll have to look for them in the library.
    Thanks
