i read The Godfather first before ever seeing the film, after which i went on a Puzo binge.
this was in my younger years and i quickly learned that movies rarely capture what the novel was, which sucks!
so i've never read the exorcist, and i initially watched the movie sooo long ago, there are only a few scenes left in memory. should i read the book first before watching it, or the other way around?
