I'm a horrible person. That confession out of the way
Reviewed in the United States on January 10, 2018
So I read this after having seen the movie, yes I know, I'm a horrible person.
That confession out of the way, there was actually enough difference between the book and the movie to keep me engaged throughout the reading.
I actually wish that they had done the start of the movie more like that start of the book, Jane not being a Colin Firth obsessed modern-day spinster. Also having her rediscovering her joy in painting while on vacation and deciding to change for herself and not for any of the guys was much more interesting.
Long story short, even if you've seen the movie the book is worth a read, and the humor still shine through.
