24 Books Describe the Characters' Emotions Better

A books character isn't someone 'acting' it's the person in their own right, they are themselves, they KNOW how to act out their own emotion. For one they're not getting payed to act out someone elses life/feelings. an actor can only ever portray a characters emotions not live them.

26 Longer Enjoyment

If you ask me what I want to do for you know, lets say two hours, and we can't go somewhere, then I would grab a blanket (or ice tea for the summer) and one of the Harry Potter books. The it could stretch over two hours, and probably filled the two hours.

Movies have more intense enjoyment - movieman666

27 Books Can Be More Exciting

Yes of course they are... I totally agree...

You can really understand whats happening, in movies it always a bit of a jumble of explotions and yelling, in books way more understandable when there is a fighting scene

28 Books Have All the Details that the Author Wants

Yes... But that's for a book.
A movie has all the details the author AND the director want. Plus since when does having everything the author want in a book make it better? If the author didn't have something go his/her way in a book we wouldn't know...
