Based on this week’s topic: “Do you ever read books because of the movies based on them? How did they measure up?” I guess this week’s going to be another short and sweet post from me.
If I were going to; I’d be more apt to see the movie after I’d read the book, not vice-versa. IMHO, why bother to read the book if you already know the story and how it goes? That’s the excitement of reading and turning pages to see what happens next!
I don’t like having it ruined by already knowing what’s going to happen next. I’ve never been able to understand the reader who reads the last page first. That would spoil everything for me.
Same goes for movies. If I see the end first, I’m not apt to want to watch it from the beginning.
Do you like to know what’s going to happen in a story first, or prefer a surprise ending?
