really liked it
Read in February, 2005

This book is SO much better than the film that the movie almost makes me angry. Yes, sure, fine, I live in Santa Barbara and, okay, I don't really like Merlot - well, there are some that are atually, well..., wonderful..., BUT, this is a clever, entertaining read with an ending quite different from the film, and characters that do things in different ways for different - well developed - reasons. I heard recently - meaning March 2009 - that a Japanese film company is doing a remake of this book with Japanese actors, in Napa. And they even dump the spit bucket! It just remains to be seen if they treat each other as they did in the movie version or in this very fine novel.
