So, I've been doing a BIONICLE binge- finally reading through every one of the books and maybe the web serials sometime too.  However, in cases such as Adventures #4, I've watched the movie rather than reading the book for time reasons and also because I feel more connected to a movie (moving, talking characters) to a book.  Is this a good way to go, or should I turn back and read the MoL novel and Adventures #4?  I'm currently on Adventures #8, so that factors in, but I just wanted to know the common opinion on this.

well, it's however you want to do it. I like books better than movies, but I still enjoy them.

Here's a webcomic you might want to check out.

Like a cross between X-men and ghostbusters.

Except everyone is 12.

 

I played Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition. PM me if you do as well!

From my experience, reading the book is the same thing as watching the movie for MoL. As for LoMN, read the book. It includes some things that just took too long to put into the movie.

Yeah, in #4, there is a fight scene with some Lohrak that was mentioned in the movie bonus and had a movie form:

but it never showed up in the final film. It was in the book, however. But other then that there is a small fight with a tunneler if I'm not mistaken. Other then that, it's the same.

Do both. Reading explains the characters' thoughts, which you can't hear in the movies.

I second this. 

 

But you won't be missing much on the MoL novelisation, which is less canon than the movie and has a ton of differences. I recommend reading the LoMN novelisation, however, for the detail. And do read the WoS novelisation because it is more canon than the movie (and more enjoyable IMO).

Thanks for the advice, guys.

 

I'm starting Adventures 8, and I'll read Adventures 4 soon.  As for WoS, I'll watch the movie on Netflix then start reading Adventures 9 after I finish.

Despite what others are saying, I would recommend the MOL novelization too. It has stuff that were supposed to be in the movie, but weren't sor some reason. For example, Takua's thoughts are explained in a way that make his seemingly strange actions in the movie more logical. Like his "mental breakdown" in Onu-Koro, which was very nicely written in the book. The fights with the Rahkshi are also better in the book.

 

And the LOMN novelization has some character development for Whenua ans Nuju too, although not in the movie. In the book they both gradually learn to appreciate past and the future, not just either one of them.

I always feel that books > movies mainly due to what other people have said. The books go a little bit more in-depth or explain things that the movies didn't have time to.
