Yeah, the movie makes a lot more sense if you read the books. There's a lot of stuff that gets into the books that you can't really put up on the screen. I read Ep III just before going and seeing it, mostly because I have a hard time remembering character names and wanted to know who I was looking at. The whole thing is explained very well there. Especially Anakin. Anakin makes a lot more sense in the book than the movie. Plus there are some humorous scenes that didn't make it to the movie. Just be warned, what took five minutes to happen in the movie will take nearly seven chapters to happen in the book. Also the book doesn’t do such a good job describing things like the setting. So in some ways it’s better to read the book first, and in some ways it’s better to see the movie first.
