I liked the MOVIE version better because:
- Since I Am Number Four is an action-packed story, this translated well into film since we will be able to visualize every move, every moment, every nuance within the story, and the special effects will help us understand more than if we are just reading about it and letting our brain do the imagining which is sometimes just not enough.
- I was not very confident about the premise of this story and paying for a movie ticket costs less than paying for the book itself that I might end up not enjoying.
- I do not like reading series books because if it had a cliffhanger ending, it might drive me crazy; whereas in films, the ending is almost always clearer even if the movie has a sequel coming up, or is part of a series.
- Alex Pettyfer.
- "The film version's action scenes mostly transpired in the dark and I do not have very good night vision."
- "The book is way better because I can just go open it and read it whenever I feel like it."
- "I do not need a big screen to dictate to me what I should imagine when I am reading about the action scenes in this story. I have my very vivid imagination for that, thank you very much."
- "We all know that movie adaptations always differ from the real version, so at least the book is a perfectly reliable source."
- "I think Alex Pettyfer's all-too-chiseled facial features are scary. He looks more like a sculpture than a real person."
