Because, obviously, this is coming later this year...
I prefer reading a book before watching its movie equivalent, unless the book doesn't lure me one bit (like One Day) or the movie/TV equivalent sounds like the better way to experience the story (eg: Vampire Diaries, and I don't like vampires anyways) or the humongous size of the book just keeps giving me shivers (Hello, Game of Thrones). And sometimes, the book happens to belong to a period I struggle with (Pride and Prejudice). But I still much prefer to read a book first, because books are better, right?
Somehow, I'm not sure about The Great Gatsby though. The reviews I've read have made me alternately intrigued and indifferent. But since Leonardo DiCaprio is in it, it's a given that I'll be sitting in the movie theater, probably during the first week after release itself.
What do you think? Have you read it? Planning to? Or not your soup?
