We are cinema lovers. Films are the window to the world, they bring us the whole info-graphic world in front of our eyes, and they make the characters we dream about live, talk, play and make love. They make us believe in our imagination- of our contours of our battles. They, at times depict things in a sheer way that books can’t do even possibly. They are a pure escape from the words and worlds- and we feel like there’s nothing along the zenith of these worlds as sitting in the cinema, out of all the distractions and devotions, focused completely on the story that is plying out onto the screen.
Yet, they don’t have as much connotation as the books have. We are merely watching the actors playing their characters, and not feeling everything the character is going through, not knowing whatever is going on in his innermost mind. All of the thoughts, hopes, fears, inclinations doubts are left just to imagination. Films let you have the window to observe whatever’s going inside. Books? They open the doors.
And for all the book and cinema lovers, we recommend these books that you ought to read before they come alive on screen. We want you not to just observe, but live.
