    Default Which do you prefer? the movie or the novel?

    I actually like both but the book has more backstary on Robert LeBay and his violent family history. At least the movie has the famous one liner about the finest thing excet maybe for_____

    Novel is always better than the movie IMHO. Great in depth study of the characters. Like to make imagines in my own mind.

    I agree with GNTLIGHT and Spidey....Novels are always better. Movies will never be able to compete with the Human Mind.

    Always the novel! There are so many more details in novels that are often left out in movies. The story is always, always better

    I liked both. Both the movie and the novel were pretty much the same, the novel did get deeper about the story of Christine, but what novel doesn't have more detail than the book? I say, hypothetically that is, that if you mixed the movie with the book, that would be a perfect mix. What happen's to Arnie is pretty lame in the book, but the book was still better. Did anybody find the transition from first-person to third-person to first-person a bit odd? Because I did.

    As far as this one is concerned, the book, hands down.

    SPOILER alert just in case....

    One thing I noticed in the book which is different in the movie.

    Buddy pulls a knife on Artie and Dennis outside of the shop building while in the movie it takes place inside the shop class building
