Which one?

If you've seen the movie and read the book, please advise.

I'm gonna do both, but I want to keep the "wow" factor as high as possible for both as well.

I know movies usually take a crap on the books, but I want for both to be as enjoyable as possible. This isn't a competition between books and film. Don't be anal about it. #analanus

As an example, I've read and watched "World War Z". The movie is very loosely based on the book, and I would have preferred to watch the movie first. It's an ok movie, it stands on its own, but the book is amazing. Because I read the book first, I was expecting much more from the movie, which sucked.

What if the movie stayed faithful to the book? Maybe I would've preferred to read first and then experience that amazing story in full 3D.

It was the most appropriate answer given my options.

I've done both, both are worthwhile although as always the book has vastly more detail and nuance.

Oh Baby Joel, I should have done as you said.
I watched the movie after reading the book, it was a mess and the characters were worse than the ones I'd imagined (which is normal).

I shouldn't have watched it. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu........

Read the book, then reflect; forget about the movie as it's a terrible piece of film. Even for a literature---film adaptation
Legato and fluidity in your playing is where it's at

DJENT!!

I'm so sorry.

At least you've got a good idea of how it should've been from reading the book. I never read it so all I have is the crapp film in my head :p
