I prefer the book, it's more detailed, but some films are better, especially when there's a lot of action.

Hi,
For me, It's depend on title. for novel, I prefer the book. because it explained with details. and for action title, definitely cinema is better than the book.

Reading a book is more good for me ,i love to use my mind
to imagin every detail.

I prefer reading books than watching films because the chance of wasting your time while watching films are more away than reading books.

I think It depends on books and films. But books are more useful for us than films. Books help to become smarter.

i prefer both a book and film, it's depend for the topic, but i usually read a book because i use more my mind and imagination.

I could say that normally books are more detailled than movies,but movies are great as well.I mean any one you choose it will be a good one.I like both!

I prefer reading books in many fields like science, poetry, ethics and health. And watching movies like action, animation, history, motivation story, infection diseases, industry and art.

I think it depends on the subjects for both films and books, and to be honest it doesn't make any sense that comparing without determination, so in terms of historical events and biography I surely prefer films owing to visual and sound effects and the ability to imagine, also I think it will be more exciting that you really shows what happens in that ages.

In other hand I think the books will exceeds the films In small zone like in scientific books, stories for kids.

at the end I really relished with the contents of the episode, my thanks and appreciation for you due to help students to learn the language without fees.
