Compressing the content of a novel into a two hour film is hard, and often leaves audience members frustrated with the way their favorite novel was portrayed. Would reversing the order in which it is done be advantageous?

Reading a book before watching a movie that is based on the book often leaves audience members disappointed because the makers of movies don’t always interpret the story the same way readers do.

Nico Camerino believes that “you can picture the story however you want when you read, but when you watch a movie youre stuck with whatever is shown. so its nice to have your own image that you created and then see how another person put it into a movie.”

Two minds rarely imagine things in exactly the same way, so disappointment is almost unavoidable.

Because she has a liking for knowing the plot ahead of time, Gigi Vlahos said, “It’s more fun to watch the movie when you can expect whats going to happen.”

According to a poll taken during lunch on the Carlmont campus, 29 of the 30 students asked prefer reading books before watching the movie.

The one outstanding pupil who said she prefers reading books after movies, Lara Ostroff, stated that, “It is assumed that a movie will not be as good as the book. Watching a mediocre movie and then letting it be developed with imagination [as the book is read] lets it become something great rather a disappointment. ”

Seeing as it is a subjective matter, there is no “right” way to enjoy cinema- bound literature.
