I didn't say if either was vulgar or not, just that if I had kids, I'd be more likely to let a younger one read the book than go see the movie (assuming they don't gloss over the violence just to appease the MPAA)

I know people have imaginations, but I also think that your mind will visualize the scene in a way that fits in with what you can handle (emotionally, etc), whereas in a movie the way it's shown is decided for you as far as level of gore, how the violence is played out, how much is shown, etc. Not sure if I'm expressing that quite right, but hopefully you get what I mean.
