The book or movie? I've been watching "Pride and Prejudice" many times in different versions. That movie inspired me to read this book and I like both the book and the movies, specially the old version. 

And there are many many different movies like "War and Peace", "Evgenij Onegin", "The children of captain Grant"..

What do you like more the book or the movie incronisation?

It depends from person to person and their depth of understanding and imagination. I used to read Harry Potter books as a kid over and over. I read the 6th and the 7th book in one night. (Started from 12AM, finished at 7am). 


Just by reading the books alone, my brain created it's own visual imagery of the story. How the characters look like, what the locations our characters are present at, look like. And when the movies came out, they vastly differed from what i had in mind, some aspects looked better than my imagination and some didn't. 


But overall, the books provided me a more in-depth experience with the story, more than the movie, because it allowed me to warp the story in my own direction. Plus, a book is in far more detail as compared to a movie, which has to cram as much of the story in a hour and a half or two hours.

I like Pride and Prejudice too! and also like movie version. I just can't get enough from the plot.

If we are going to talk Jane Austen I loved the movie "Sense and Sensibility", so many great performances.  You should try to check it out:  Here is a low quality version on youtube

Lots of great 'english' for practice.

Well, of course, I like a book version much more than a TV version. In a book we can clearly see author's thoughts and points about different problems. Also, when you are reading a book, you imagine characters, their apperance, and you fall in love with them, because of your imagination. Conversely, in a TV version. You, probably, will not fall in love with a main character, if the character don't match your taste. Also, a director can completely change the story and, may be, it will be better version of it, but, however, it won't be the original.

Sarah, Thank you for the discussion.  I thought you might like to know that there is no such word as "incronisation" or inchronisation" in English (though it sounds like it should be a word). We usually talk about "historical / chronological inaccuracies".
