Book for me. Book opens one's imagination and i find it thrilling to put life to the characters of the book myself. My personal policy is to read the book before i watch its movie.

I just finished the book and haven't decided yet if I want to see the movie. I've heard mixed reviews about the movie and I'm usually pro-book anyway, so I'm not in a rush.

As I always say the book is always better than the movie. 1 because you never know if the actors chosen will embody the characters the way you read them and 2 because there is always stuff missing because of lack of time or is hard to show visually in a movie.

Honestly, I felt that the movie did a good job improving on the plot of the book. Meaning that to me Tris throughout the book series became a bland character and was incredibly disappointing. However, the movie did leave out certain details of the book that were in my opinion important- for example- the chocolate cake. While I usually agree with the statement "the books are always better", in this case I was pleasantly surprised with the movies.

I like both but I would go with the book anyday just because I love the details. There was a lot of things left out in the movie and the book was just so fun to read.

I think books are always better than the movies because I usually read the books first so I already have a mental representation of a character so once the movie comes out I'm usually disappointed by the portrayal of the characters in the movie. Although there are some movies whose actors do a great job in portraying the characters from the books.
