Books and films both tell stories, but what we want from a book can be different from what we want from a movie. Is this true for you? If so, what’s the difference between a book and a movie?

Yes, of course books and movies are different. Movies concentrate on the visual and are usually far more fast paced. Books can delve into a character’s inner thoughts and character development. Of course, not all books do that, either. But books lack the visual aspect completely. A writer can describe places and characters and a character’s movement or clothing but the impact isn’t the same. And as many others have pointed out in this respect reading a book is more intimate and leaves more to the imagination of the reader.
