The hilarious novel that inspired the blockbuster movie-including what's next for Elle Woods!
Elle Woods, California University senior, seems to have it all. President of Delta Gamma sorority, she's aced her major--sociopolitical jewelry design-and is on the verge of becoming Mrs. Warner Huntington III. Too bad Warner, bound for Stanford Law, dumps her with the explanatio
There is NO Emmet Forrest in the book. In fact, no love interest for Elle at all. She just spends the entire book moaning over Warner.

The movie took this book and improved it all-around. In the movie, Elle realizes early in the school year that Warren is a bonehead, and she takes it upon herself to show him and everyone else that she's just as good as the rest of them. In the book, Elle waffles with her feelings until the very end of the high-profile murder trial, barely studies, and gets through school mostly on lu ...more
Amanda Brown should be punished for writing this.
Stick with the movie version, where Elle has a brain and actually uses it.
Okay, so I watched the movie before I read the book. Yes, friends, gasp all you want. This is unusual behavior for me, too. But thank the Lord Almighty that that happened. There would have been a close to nil. chance that I would have gone to see the movie that Reese Witherspoon did a hell of a great job adapting.
This review will be short and not so sweet as I feel as if I were to continue, my head will burst of exhaustion and boredom. The quick flash: I did ...more

"Elle’s bimboishness makes this book really funny =)"
I actually still quite like this book. I stopped reading chick-lit a few years ago but sometimes when I'm feeling down I pick this book up and read it. It never fails to make me smile. I saw the film a while back and it didn't do the book justice. Elle's character grows and changes throughout the book, but this is barely touched on in the movie. This book isn't just stupid, bimbo-y chick-lit (as my 13-year-old self's review ...more
While I thoroughly enjoyed the book, I would be perfectly happy if they combined a bit of the movie with the book as there were certain aspects of the movie that I liked better: how she remained friends with her better sorority sisters. I liked Luke Wilson's characater as the assistant of the at ...more

-The category on the bingo board that this book completes is a book with a female main character.
-What I liked about this book was the way that one of the characters stood up for what she believed in and she let nothing get in her way. I also like the way that the author wrote the book to make law school sound fun.
-What I didn't like about this book was the way that, in some sections of the book the author wr ...more
