A success on such a large scale that it’s difficult for me to write about. Check it out!

Gave it to page 100 before I decided the book was too boring and scattered in focus to go on.. Basically a collection of stories: for each host of the book club meeting we first have to read a flashback story to their adolescence. My how difficult it is to grow up in the sunny state of California in the richest country of the world. Sigh. Their problems did not touch me,

Each of the main characters reflects some aspect of Austen's books in their personalities or their lives; not so overtly as to be predictable, but running through the whole story. And because we see them in action rather than getting flashbacks and conversation, I enjoyed this very much indeed.

It's not necessary to be an Austen fan to like and understand this film - my husband has never read any of her books, although he's seen a few film adaptations. But it helps, to appreciate the ironies.… (mais)

Rosemary tells the story of growing up in her family with her brother, sister, imaginary twin sister, and parents. Her father is a professor of behavioral psychology. She starts the story in the middle, jumps around a bit, and eventually makes it through the beginning and the end. The most important milestone in her life is when her sister leaves.

This novel pulled at my heartstrings. It was funny, sad and a page-turner all at the same time. And I learned a lot.
