I actually prefer to Read the book first because the movie usually takes a lot of details out of the story to give you a visual. But I have seen movies first and then read the book without "feeling some type of way".

I have high preference in movies as they generate critical thinking based on impossibilities and imaginations.

I usually try to read the book before I see the movie, but it sadly almost never happens that way.

I would always read the book first if possible. I have found in the past once I have seen the movie, it has given everyone an identity so part of the pleasure in imagination is removed.

Often find though as been said, if I have read the book, often the movie lacks

I prefer reading book first because there are those details in the book which is not seen in the movie.

I try to read the book first but sometimes I won't know that their is a book to read and my mind just won't let me read it.
