The novel The Lone Ranger and the Fistfight in Tonto and the film Smoke Signals are very similar in many aspects but have some key difference as well. The main differences occur in the situation where the characters had a choice. The first situation is where Victor and Thomas is the book decided to abruptly leave the Trailer in which they were staying while in the film Alexie chose to stay there.

Another difference is throughout the film it is shown that Victor and Thomas have a more strained and aggressive relationship this can be seen in the scene when they're in the truck and Thomas yelled at Victor and showed aggression that wasn't seen in the novel; in the novel Thomas and Victor have a more respectful relationship with one another. Since Thomas is a lot more passive in the novel his stories are more easily understood. The biggest similarity in the book had to be the plot line where Victor's father dies in Arizona and he needed the help of Thomas to pick up his ashes. The difference is how they traveled to Arizona, in the film it was by bus in the novel it was by plane. Another difference in the amount of money Victor was given in the film he says his mother gave him fourth dollars in the novel he was given one hundred by the tribe.

Although the theme to have hope was still visible in the book and movie. Overall, the book was better than the movie because it has more details and more dramatic and leads you to want to read on and find out more chapter after chapter. Everyone should read the book because a lot of emotions, action, and mystery just a bit of
There's a difference between the movie and the book. The book tells you all the details and the movie only tells you the importance of the story. Sometimes the movie will change the story, and it will make a difference. Reading the book was easy, I could understand it better and I could follow along with the book. The movie was ok, it told us the importance of the book, but it didn’t tell us everything, it made a lot of changes.
The movie was much more efficient for me because I am a slow reader and I do not do well with comprehending reading. The movie gave me a quick way of watching and understanding what was going on. It was much faster for me than reading the book. Although the book gave a good accurate presentation, the movie gave me a visual and factual presentation.
One of the first differences that I encountered is that the two beginnings are completely different. In the novel, the story starts out with Steinbeck describing what life was like in the dust bowl. This gives the reader a visual of what the setting will be like throughout the novel. In the movie, it begins with a man (that we aren't familiar with yet) walking down the road. He then comes across a truck that he hitches a ride on.
As a reader I prefer reading the book versus watching the movie, because the movie was missing pieces of the book. In the beginning of the novel Jack and his son Danny are closer to each other than in the movie . Jack began off as crazy as soon as the film started so you don 't really see what got him there.

Therefore it makes the story easier to imagine and picture. Since the book has more information and details, it interests me when I read something that didn’t happen in the movie. I am starting to like this book and hope to read on. This book is said to have many good quotes.
Another difference is that in the movie they go into town, but in the book it 's never mentioned. Something else that was different was that in the book the mood was happy most of the time, while in the movie the mood was sad. A difference between the book and the movie is that in the book momma was going to burn Byron, but in the movie she does not burn him. A big difference is that in the
There are many differences made in the movie and the book to simplify the plot to save time. Majority of the simplifications being made do not affect the story, but have a different way of portraying each chapter. The movie and the book portray the messages in different ways with the same meaning. What happened in the beginning of the movie was that Huck was getting into a fight with a kid and he soon discovered Pap’s footprint, while in the beginning of the book Huck being civilized by Widow Douglas.
I enjoyed the movie better than the book. It included just the right amount of action scenes, description words, and details from the story. The story was amazing but I like seeing things more than reading them. I usually like the movies better than the book.
Is the book or the movie better? The answer is that the book is better. To answer this question we must delve into what the message of each story tells the person consuming the works. During the first hundred pages of the novel and the first fifty minutes we get a quick back story
The idea between the two has to be identical due the mutual topic. However, The movie does have some subtle differences but the movie script is almost identical to that of the book. Starting with the setting, it is very much similar in the movie and play both. It mainly takes place in the apartment of Wingsfield and occasionally outside when Tom either goes to the fire escape to smoke or leave to the movies. All the characters also remain the same consisting of only Amanda Wingfield, her children Tom and Laura, and Jim O’Connor the gentleman caller.
