  1. The book I think was better because you can't mumble in a book .The movie had some parts where you couldn't understand them very well.A good thing about the movie is that they showed you something you don't really understand in the book. That's why I like the book better than the movie. But both were very well descripted.

  2. I liked it but at some points I just didn't like it in the book or the movie. But my favorite part was when Dr.Roylott died because he purposely killed Julia when she did nothing wrong. He just wanted the money that she would get when she got married. And I liked the part where Sherlock Holmes hit the snake with something in the movie. But they could of had the sister die a little shorter in the movie cause in the book she die like right after she got bit.

  7. I liked the book more than the movie. The book described the details of the mystery better in my opinion. The clothing that they wore in the movie was different than the book said. Some of the names and ages were also different in the movie. I enjoyed reading and watching "The Adventure of The Speckled Band".

  10. I really enjoyed the Speckled Band but I liked the book more than the movie. The book made things scarier and easier to understand. The movie was not bad but everything is better in a book. My favorite part is when Holmes says "Watson, you will need your pistol, and your toothbrush" in the movie.

  11. I definitely like the movie better than the book. The movie had more details and it also showed the scenes so you could see exactly what it looked like. In the book, it said Julia's death took about 10 seconds but in the movie, it took longer. Both the movie and book were great.

  12. I liked the book better. Something different was in the movie Dr. Roylett's face got red and didn't think it would. Julia Stoner didn't die in 10 seconds like in the book. They called the cheetah a jaguar or a panther.

  13. I enjoyed the book and the movie. But the movie was best because In the book I could imagine the scenes in the my head. The movie had so many more details like Sherlock Holmes' funny accent when he said, "baboon" and "Watson, ready your pistol." Also, in the movie Holmes flat tore up the snake with his cane. When I was reading the book I imagined Holmes being much less aggressive.

  14. Sherlock Holmes looked different than I thought he would. The bell rope was red and white I thought it would be brown. The man at the begining fell off the bridge and in to the water.

  15. I liked the movie better than the book because the movie was more entertaining. What I didn't like about the movie was that they didn't show when Holmes pushed the snake back into the vent on the ceiling. However, I enjoyed both the movie and the book.

  16. I like the book better than the movie because it gave out more details. I like the movie also because we got to watch it during school. I enjoyed reading and watching "The Adventure of the Speckled Band."

  17. I liked the book better because I could understand it more. The movie was cool because you could see how the people that made it thought it would look. But there were parts that I didn't know what it might look like and the movie helped me with that. I like at the credits when you see Holmes fighting the snake to get it away in light, because in the dark you just see Holmes and Watson in the dark. I loved the Speckled Band!

  18. I liked the movie because you watch, not read. I loved that we read the book first even though I was still scared in the movie, too! I also loved the part where Roylott took down Mister overalls at the creek! Speckled Band rocks!

  24. I think that the book was better, because you could picture the book better also I thought that the movie would be more modern. It was a very mysterous book and movie. I really loved The Adventure of the Speckled Band and I hope you did too!

  25. I liked the book better than the movie because the book had more details. I think it's funny how Dr. Grimesby Roylott thought he was so strong and then when he left, Holmes bent itback again. The girl in the movie who played Julia was a REALLY good actress.

    Now normally I like the book better but this is an exception. I liked the movie better because the book was to short for me to enjoy. I imagined the screams more horrifying and blood chilling. I also think, correct me please if I am wrong, in the book they were wrong with a cheetah coming from India. I want to see Holmes vs The Dr. in a fist fight or a wrestling match. I liked the end with it showing what happened when Holmes smacked the snake. The sister took to long to die in the movie.

    I liked the movie and the book Pretty much the same!! But I kinda scared me when the snake killed Dr.Roylott and ya know his face scared me. Julia on the other hand has VERY good acting skills.

  30. I liked the book better. That may just be because we read it first, but I also liked it better because it was a little less dramatic. The drama was at a higher level in the movie than in the book and I think that was a big factor.

  31. I didn't get to see the whole movie. I liked the book better because it was less dramatic. I always prefer to read the book because I can picture it in my head.

    1. My favorite part was when Helen Stoner died she was really dramatic. I also liked when Holmes bent the steel poker back in place.

  32. I loved the book I just wasn't that interested in the movie. I noticed though, that in the movie Holmes is very diffrent than I pictures him in my head. Watson was sleeping when they we're at the house which surprised me. Also, the book would stop at the good parts and I sort of like that, cause it just makes you want to read on.

  34. I liked parts of both the movie and the book. I didn't like that Julia died. I liked the movie because you could see the action and I liked the book because the action was a bit easier to understand.

  35. I liked the book better because the book was more descriptive than the movie. One difference I noticed was that the book said the snake venom took only ten seconds to take effect,but it took longer in the movie. My favorite part was when the snake killed Dr. Roylott and the shocked look on his face.

  36. I think that the book was better because it was alot more descrptive. In the book it says the venom was supost to kill in ten seconds but in the movie julia walk aroud for what seemed like 50 seconds. Also the snake was more trained then I thought. I dont know why but the movie seemed much shorter than I exspected. My favorite part was when the baboon walk right in front of holmes.

  38. I think the movie and the book were good. Though I think that the book was better because it was a little more easier to understand than the movie.Another reason I like the book better is because I liked the way it described things
