I think that reading does require a little more work for the audience. You have to use your imagination to fill in the gaps for things that words can't describe. Watching science-fiction is fun and interesting, but it takes some of the creativity out of things.

I like both. I'd choose the book, if it comes down to it because that way I have more detail and understand the story better and movies tend to leave out some elements of the plot. I also can visualize my characters and settings exactly how I want them going off the author's descriptions. I do enjoy the movie though, because near every show has a soundtrack that goes well with whatever scene is being acted out, something I may have interpreted one way might be completely different on-screen or it might just be interesting to see certain scenes on the screen.
