I gave myself permission to read a book. YEAH!
First, I saw the movie trailer for Something Borrowed. Yikes. The guy who plays Dex is hot! I don't even know who that is but I really don't care.
During the trailer it says 'From the best selling novel by Emily Giffin'.
Really? I like best selling novels!
So, I purchased the e-book (Thank You Wendy Tyler Ryan!) from Amazon and I finished reading it yesterday.
I won't really go into detail, for those of you who want to read it and/or watch the movie, but I can easily tell by the trailer that this movie does not follow the book...at all.
As for the story, I liked it. The romance was sweet, the characters were realistic and it had a good sense of humor.
So many of the main character's realizations and childhood memories hit home with me.
There were quite a few moral and ethical dilemmas in the book but I'm not opening that can of worms in this post.
But...I wasn't fond of the ending. I thought it was missing something. Something big. It left me with a lot of questions. I checked twice to see if the last chapter even downloaded.
It was just strange.
It makes you wonder though, what about her book caused an agent/publisher to sit up and take notice? What about her book made someone say, this would make a great movie?
I do think the movie will be good. It's got an excellent cast. But, I'm not sure they should call it by the same name when the screenwriters took such liberties with it.
I'd go watch it just to ogle the hot guy and to see how they end the movie compared to the book.
Well, that's my review. I don't do 'stars' so I will just say that I'm glad, for a number of reasons, that I read it.
