it was ok
Read from May 24 to 31, 2012

LOVED LOVED LOVED the movie so of course I HAD to get the book! Hopefully it lives up to the movie!

2.5 stars for this book which is almost NOTHING like the movie. The movie had a sweet and endearing message with just a little bit of sassiness. The book is more like an overwrought soap opera with very little to like about the characters. Only a few of the characters from the book are actually in the movie and their story lines are changed dramatically. About the only thing that remains true in the translation from the book to the movie is the hotel and India itself. MUCH MUCH MUCH preferred the movie to the book!
