Yes! Love it when I find out a great movie has a book. Then I get excited to have more of the story

I think there are a lot of things to be compared when a movie is based from a book. I watched the first Harry Potter movies before reading the book. And i admit it, i got wowed then. But when i read the book i had to rewatch the movie again to check about the scenes.

Happened to me with 'The Maze Runner'. Since I really enjoyed the movie I was so excited to find out it was a series.

Typically for me, I like to read the book first and then watch the movie. In all reality though, I usually end up liking whichever one I experience first just because that's my first impression of the story. Whichever one comes second it's like "Hey, that's not supposed to happen like that." Very rarely do I like the movie and book equally. The book Room by Emma Donoghue is a good example of an equally powerful book and movie, each with their own techniques to tell a beautiful heart-wrenching story.

I do love finding out there's a book behind a movie; though, since I keep up with books more than I do with movies, this doesn't happen to me very often. I actually want to read the novelization of the live-action Beauty and the Beast that came out last year. I want to see how they put the movie into a book, which is the opposite of what usually happens.

I watched 'The Da Vinci Code' first and later found out that it was based on the book which was surprisingly as good as the movie, maybe better.

Since I always prefer the books to watching the movie, finding out that a movie, especially the one I find interesting, has a book will be good, it will make my day.
