Book Meets Movie: The Jane Austen Book Club

The Jane Austen Book Club was a wonderful book, a story about life...a life with happy endings.  The movie follows fairly faithfully to the story.  The exception would be Allegra and Prudie. Ther stories were still great...just a little different.

The plot line introduces several things that were referenced in the book as happening in the past, as happening in the present.  These are worked in flawlessly and serve to round the characters and the personalities out very well without having to deal with multiple flashbacks or trying to show thoughts in a movie format.

If you enjoyed the book, you will enjoy the movie.  It was great to watch on a stormy evening curled up on the couch.  And to top it all off - Grigg is pretty cute!
