Book vs. Movie: Which one wins?
I think that the book is way better than the movie. I think they should have shown how Jem lost his pants and Dill said they had been playing strip poker. I think this would have added a lot of humor and given you something to laugh at. I think that the movie is going really fast through the beginning of the book to get to the big case of Tom Robinson. I liked how the book eased you into Maycomb at first, then it introduced the people so you got to know what everyone was like, then it slowly started talking about the Tom Robinson case getting you used to what you are going to see. However, the movie is rushing you into everything, which would confuse a person if they hadn't read the book. Also, the movie said that an Aunt Stephanie took care of Dill instead of an Aunt Rachel. If you hadn't read the book, do you think you would understand the story characters and all?
