当前不少文学作品被改编成电影。有人选择看电影， 有人则喜欢读原著。请你以“Film or book, which do you prefer?”为题，按照下列要点写 一篇英语短文： 看电影：省时、有趣、易懂 读原著：细节更多、语言优美 我的看法及理由 注意：1、词数：100-120 文章题目和开头已给出 （不计入词数）。 2、参考词汇： original work 或 book in the original （原著）
Film or book, which do you prefer?
Some of us think that it is better to see the film than to read the book in the original._________ ______________
Some of us think that it is better to see the film than to read the book in the original. The reason is that it takes less time to understand the whole story. Besides, the film is usually more interesting, and it is easier to follow.
Some others have just the opposite opinion. They think that they can get more detailed information from the original. Meanwhile, the language in the book is possibly more lively and beautiful.
Personally, I agree with the second view. Actually I have more reasons for it. I think I can stay at home, reading quietly in a situation of my own, and what’s more, I am able to better understand the author’s ideas. In a word, to read the original work is better than to see the film based on it.
