Evaluation

In my opinion, the movie version is better because i am more of a visual learner. However, the book is more detailed and gives more of a different tone. In the movie i feel like it was exaggerated or "Brought To Life" So to say. Also the movie would be great for people who aren't readers or who don't like to read its just certain parts from the book you wont get out of the movie.
