Many novels are changed into movies. My experience is that watching movies which are produced based on the novels is less enjoyable than read original novel. There is several cause of this argument.
First of all, the language which used to state the story among novels can be read enjoyable. That is what can not be provide by movies. When we read novel, we get the enjoyment brought by the beautiful language come from the renown writer. Of course, the movies will make the visual exciting, for a lover of literature, it is more enjoyable to scrutinize the inner beautiful of sentences.
Additionally, the detail of the story depicted in the novel may often be cut off when the novel is changed into movies in order to match the limitation of one and half hour in movie. That will lead to the little inconsistency when story expands and the scenario is evolving. The scenario will jump into next piece without close relationship and natural transform between each circumstance.
Last but not least, the writer of novel will make much more effort and time to organize the content into a book with a high inconsistence and coherent structure. While the producer of movie fill focus their energy on the visual effect rather than the story itself, that will make movies lose the attraction for audience
In conclusion, I often feel the movies changed from novel lost the beautiful of original and I usual see the relevant novel again when I watch a movie.
