Feelings help complete a book and make it amazing. They tell you what the person is thinking which makes it a lot easier to understand, and uses adjectives to describe their personalities. This is why books are so great and unique, whereas in a movie, it doesn't explain what the person is thinking and you just have to make assumptions about their personality. I don't like this because you could be completely wrong and you never know. This is one of the reasons why I think that the book, The Giver, is better than the movie.
I think everyone loves to use their imagination. It's like you're free to think anything and you won't get in trouble. In The Giver, there are many spots in it where you are free to use your imagination. You can help come up with the world they live in, what their community looks like, and even how the book ends! I think that many people enjoyed this, but in the movie, everything is given to you and you don't have a choice on even the simplest things such as what Jonas looks like. I think that this is a major set back because I love to use my imagination!
One reason why I enjoy reading books is because it captivates you for a long period of time. With a book like The Giver, it is very suspenseful and is hard to put down. You are always wanting to flip the page and see what happens next. I know I always couldn't wait until I got home from school and had to read! All of this happens for about 2 weeks with a book, whereas in movies, you are only intrigued for about an hour and a half. Also, as you are reading you are getting smarter and smarter and more intelligent!
I thought that both the movie and the book The giver were amazing, but I enjoyed reading the book more for many reasons. The three main reasons that I think the book is better is because it explains feelings and emotions and the characters disposition, you are able to use your imagination for many different reasons, and because it captivates, and keeps you intrigued for a longer time.
