Is the book always better than the movie?

People say that “the book is better” than the movie all the time. I have a slightly different take on this. First, if some director has taken the time and effort to put together a whole movie based on a book, why would I even attempt to read the book? I get the whole story in 2 hours and I will be thoroughly entertained (as long as the storyline is good). Second, I think people like to say that “the book is better” just to let others know that they have read the book! Third, of course the book is better; a movie simply cannot capture everything described and everything a reader imagines. Saying that a “book is better” is simply redundant.

We saw The Hunger Games: Mockingjay yesterday at iPic. Jennifer Lawrence is my favorite actress of today. I’m sure the book is better, but the movie is superb!!

As for my training, I went to yoga at Lifetime Fitness. My membership expires on November 30; hence this may be my final Lifetime visit. Good riddance!!
