Reading fiction Score: 4.5 October 5th, 2017 by Joseph

There is no shortage of debate about wether it is enjoyable to read fiction than watch movie, in my point of view, it is more advantageous to watch films. I feel this way for two aspects, and i will try to develop my points through following paragraphs.

To begin with, watching movie not only can enjoy the sounds effect but also the special effects on the movie that is something book or novel can not provide. In addition, todays modern technics improve greatly so watching movie becomes a popular activity. On the other hand, reading novel will force you to a certain places because it is something that require complete silence to concentrate on. For example, imaging you are in the movie theater and you can sit on a chair and listen to the vivid sound effects and watch the special effect that blows your mind isn't it feel nice?

Moreover, movies can provides you technics or sights that nowadays our human raises can not achieved. Books, on the contrary, can not automatically gives you that, you have to use your brain to create one, and if you are not a very creative person you will likely to stock into thinking what was the scene that this book was describe about. For instance, you can easily to watching people on the moon or go back in times to fight dinosaurs but books that is say it describe a lost civilization and you do not have any previous knowledge about this culture, what is going to happen is that you will totally lost and can not stop doing some research while reading this book, for me that is very disturbing.

Admittedly, reading the novel has some benefits, to be more accurate, reading the fiction can let your brain working and it will not be limited for certain scenes and can also improve your writing skills. However, if it is compete in enjoyable, it goes without saying that watching movie will absolutely more relaxable than reading the book, because you only have to watch the movie instead of reading the words,according to the british scientists report, reading words is ten times exhausted than watching images. For this reason I strongly believe that it is more pleasant to watching movie.

To conclude, I confidently believe that watch films is more pleasant than reading fictions. This is because you can enjoy the surrounding sounds and the unreal scene that the movie present, and the brilliant story that people todays cant be achieved.
