Confessions of a Shopaholic
by Sophie Kinsella
Rebecca Bloomwood shops. Too bad she can't afford it, even with her numerous credit cards. Her job at Successful Savings is a complete bore, and who is she, a woman in debt, to give out financial advice?
She keeps ignoring those important bank envelopes that are overloading her mailbox, tries cutting back, and even tries making more money, but all things don't turn out. But then a story Becky is interested in comes along. This could be her chance to make it in journalism! And her chance to turn her life around!
First off, I simply ADORE the movie. Although, I find it strange how different it was from the book; mostly the setting, which somewhat changes the vernacular of the characters--Manhattan Becky is very different from British Becky. Just sayin'!
But, I am actually thinking, and I NEVER say this, that I prefer the movie over the book. I liked Manhattan Becky better than British Becky! Though the book was really fun to read, and it was the same quirky Becky, just with an accent and different words, I just didn't picture it the way I normally do with a book. Does that make sense? But the book was wonderful, don't get me wrong. Just if I have to choose between the book and movie, I would for sure be picking the movie on this one.
So, I suppose this isn't really much of a review. But, it's all I can come up with right now.
