Their thoughts, I get that it only comes with a book though there are ways films can share that too.
You can but an author can go into a lot more detail than a movie or show will. Even with something as simple as clothing..Ive just always preferred the way the author describes a characters looks than a movie or book portrays them.
Some people might not like reading an entire page just on appearance when the author could just say he had a shirt on. Or just simple describing the way he put the shirt on compared to a movie/show just showing him put a shirt on. Its the little things that the camera cant show. Or you dont notice what its showing.
I guess its just a preference on whether or not you enjoy reading more than watching something
