Recording information in the form of images or by writing is the job of the book. Book consists of many pages as bundles of thoughts are being expressed in it. It takes time to complete a book, and no book can be read in one go.
Films are the visual art form used to replicate experiences that communicate someone’s ideas, feelings, perceptions, stories, etc. It has a long lasting effect on someone’s mind.
Research made in the past proved that anything, if visualized is remembered for an extended period compared to being read. Thanks to the directors, producers, and all the movie team members who save our time and give us long-lasting content. Just Kidding………if you stop reading how we will get this good adaptation to movies. By reading books, we get new stories, ideas, new vocabulary, new ways to live life, and different perspectives towards life or things. So, keep reading the books as well.
