"Imagine that in the book you are reading there is a battle scene," says a member of READ SA in our discussion on whether turning books into movies encourage young people to read.
"In your head there are twenty thousand Zulu warriors in all their finery; oxhide shields and assegais. There are a thousand Welshmen with red jackets and white hats. In your head they are all there, but in the film there are fifty hungry township kids in dirty feathers and twenty white men with the wrong hats and jackets that don't fit. The book is better every time."
