Books will always be better than movie/TV adaptations. When you read your imagination is doing all the work. Your brain creates the world described in the book. Creates the characters in your own image which. What world you saw in the book is always different than what someone else saw. Because you imagined it your way whereas a director did it from his world.

one time I watched a movie and then read the book that the movie was based off of. I liked doing that because the book had enough differences to make it still interesting and I could visualize the actors from the movie in the book scenes. Its a nice way to handle it and when finished, I thought that BOTH the book and the movie were great in their own ways

Also, they have to make the movie easier to follow for dumber fans, and for the international audience. Also due to the international audience, they have to omit some parts that may be offensive. Like how World War Z left out the fact that China told their citizens "Oh no, nothing's wrong. Everything's fine, your sister turning into a zombie and trying to eat your face isn't a big problem." They left that out partially due to how it fit, and partially to make sure they didn't offend China.

Not to mention that that China's way of dealing with the Great Panic caused a civil war.

Why not have the author direct the movie? I feel like if the author is calling the shots, it shouldn't deviate too far from what the book says.

This is why you don't read books.

Because one day someone will make a movie adaptation and you will be pissed off.

Well there's also the rare occasions when the book is just horribly written, and then a director/writer comes and sees its potential as a movie and makes it into a better story. Forrest Gump was an awful book to read. it was just dull, but the movie was a masterpiece mostly because of the style and how the story was rewritten.

That's not ALWAYS true though. Sometimes I like how a director makes things look and makes the characters act more than how I had them in my head. For example Tyrion is a great character in both the show game of thrones and the song of ice and fire books, but in the books you have his thoughts as well as what he says and in truth his thoughts get irritating. He's always thinking about how nobody likes him and how ugly he is. And in the books Robb acts more ******** , he says things that reminds me he's still a teenager (in the show he's older) in a bad way and Cat's not as much of a bitch in the show, plus we'll never have to listen to Cersei's thoughts in the show which make her seem like more of a bitch than she already did with her words. I guess some works just let themselves to film well, some things are better on the page, there's also personal preference to consider. But what I'm saying is to every rule there's an exception.

Books are definitely better in some aspects yes, but in movies and sometimes TV series's visually seeing some parts of the books can really help out a lot. An example of this is the famous AGOT, aka A Song of Ice and Fire, some people didn't know that a certain character was homosexual even after reading the books.

There's no doubt that you really do need to read the books though, they almost always contain tons of things that have to be left out due to time constraints or some other problem.

Not to mention some movies/shows leave out details that should be relevant but they assume the viewer has read the book.

I like to imagine actors for roles when I read books now so if they are made I have something to who I can compare that is realistic.

This, this statement. ******* . Spot. ON!
The movies tend to chop details off because the directors tend to over-look them as useless details (It could be other reason but ... eh ...)
