After reading the book of mice and man and watch the movie I preferred reading the book than watching the movie. In the movie it didn’t explain and describe ever seen that happen in the book.Watching the movie it doesn't really show the audience what the author meant to show to his readers. Even thought the movie was good it didn't show exact description of the character and the had a different setting.

In the book, Crooks is much more active, and example would be when Crooks stuck his...
