    I LOVE the Legally Blonde movie, and I recently saw the musical, (which I also adored). So I was ready to love this book. It turned out to be a disappointed read. I expected difference from the movie; in fact I wanted them. I wanted more details and more funny happenings that were left out. It was different all right, but in all the wrong ways! **Spoliers** 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. Vivian i I LOVE the Legally Blonde movie, and I recently saw the musical, (which I also adored). So I was ready to love this book.

It was different all right, but in all the wrong ways! **Spoliers** 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. Vivian is named Sarah, which is not as posh. Her nail lady is French, and does not provide any sort of friendship for her (no dog rescue!) She makes a very good girlfriend in law school. Elle is a slacker! She never begins to study hard to "show them all" like she does in the movie/musical. She skips classes to get highlights, reads magazines in class and does not participate. She never rises above to show anyone she can do it. Brooke has a different last name, but she was not getting lyposuction while her husband was being murdered, she was attending an SA Shoppers Annonymous meeting because she is addicted to shopping. (GAG!) She also used to be fat, had a horrible childhood, an opened a gym/health food place. In all, this book was a pretty boring read. Elle is not as dynamic as she was on screen. The screenwriters of that movie really get some credit because they created better characters and more appealing situations.

    Fantastic narrator! I can just see Reese Witherspoon's happy voice shining through. Though not reviewing the movie, I did enjoy it so much more than the book. It lacked any type of oomph, and I'm afraid I was constantly waiting for something to happen, there was no spark to be felt or heard. The basis of the character came through, but the quirky Elle Woods that I knew was lost in the court room scenes.

The issue here was Elle scored an internship (dodgy) to assist on the defence of a young blonde widower on trial for her rich husband's murder (cliche, even for Elle). She devised a "Blonde Legal Defence Team" and so it goes. The author wrote this based on her time at Law School, I'm wondering what she got up to now!

    Review to follow. Having seen the movie I always kind of wanted to read the book. While it is cute and mostly like the movie, the fun magical feeling is not present. I think honestly that is because Reese Witherspoon made Elle Woods come alive. I just sort of skimmed the book and it fell sort of flat for me. It is very short and things go so quickly! I mean she is signed up to law school within the first couple of dozen pages. I think it was an OK read but not like the movie. And things that made t Review to follow.

    I think many people know the movie 'Legally Blonde' with Reese Whiterspoon and this book is just as fantastic as the movie. The book of course gives more insight into the life and feelings of the blonde. I think it would be great for anyone who enjoyed the film to read this book.

    Apparently I'm in the minority but I actually like the book. It's nice to see that Elle was originally pictured as someone who was aware of her inherent intelligence and was just somewhat ditzy, as opposed to the movie where it seemed like she was more sweet than naturally intelligent. Certainly, this alternate potrayal of her has its downsides and she is decidedly less nice in this version than she was in the movie (one of my favorite scenes in the movie is where she helps out the awkward, nerd Apparently I'm in the minority but I actually like the book.

Certainly, this alternate potrayal of her has its downsides and she is decidedly less nice in this version than she was in the movie (one of my favorite scenes in the movie is where she helps out the awkward, nerdy guy when the girl he was trying to ask out was making fun of him and this scene was definitely not in the book). On the other hand, it was nice to see her stand up for herself against Sarah (a.k.a. Vivian) when she was being picked on. I also found myself with mixed feelings about Emmett. Specifically, how there isn't an Emmett in the book - in other words, no romantic interest. She spends the book convinced she and Warren will get back together almost until the end. On the one hand, I missed the romantic interest, especially since I always liked the character of Emmett (both in the movie and the musical). On the other hand, I always thought it was slightly insulting to Elle and her Blonde Girl Power message that she followed one guy to college and then almost instantly hooked up with another one, even if he was a much nicer guy. In case it isn't obvious at this point, all of the changes had their good and bad points for me, and I have a hard time saying, "I like the book better because..." or "I like the movie better and here's why..." It helps if I don't compare the book and the movie to each other (and while I enjoy the musical, the only character that they improved in the musical was Emmett, and that's mainly because they amped up his role from what was in the movie - Elle was wretched in the musical). I definitely preferred the Christopher Miles character to the Dr. Kaplan character in the movie, but I also missed Professor Stromwell in the book. Also, I CATEGORICALLY disagree with the posters who say that "Legally Blonde 2" was in any way better than this book. That movie was wretched, and while Elle had her annoying moments in the book, I also didn't find myself wanting to throw the book away, which is what happened when I saw LB2. I'm also going to disagree that the musical was better than the book (Elle was made into such an inspid character in the musical, ditzier than she was in either of her previous incarnations, and she got on my nerves quickly). Basically, just try not to compare the book to the first movie and be prepared for some major changes, and I think you'll be fine.

    I'm sorry to say that Legally Blonde is one of the few examples of the movie being better than the book. I was extremely disappointed and rather sorry I had bought the book by the time I finished it, especially considering how long I had been looking for it. I had to make myself finish the book, although I will say it got somewhat better during the last 100 pages. I found Amanda Brown's writing style to be rather dull and her syntax is confusing at best.

The cover promised that the book is hilarious, but the attempts at humor fall short. The scenes that I think were meant to be funny were really just pointless--they did nothing to further the story or reveal more about the characters, and worst of all, they weren't even funny. The characterization is okay, but to be honest, I didn't find any of the characters to be that likable. Even Elle is much more likable in the movie. That said, I see from the other reviews that quite a few people do like it, so I will concede that maybe it just isn't my kind of book. I saw the movie long before I read the book, so that may have also contributed to how I feel about it. I doubt I will ever read another Amanda Brown book, though.

    Damn, this book was lame. And I kind of knew that going into it as I have read something previous from the same author and I didn't like it much either. But since I liked the movie a lot, I thought I would give the book a whirl. But I am confused. The copyright date in this book wasn't until like 2003 or 4 and the movie came out in 2001. So which came first, the book or movie? Also, I have seen the movie about 600 times and actually pay attention to the opening credits and as far as I can rememb Damn, this book was lame.

Also, I have seen the movie about 600 times and actually pay attention to the opening credits and as far as I can remember right now, it never says based on a book by or adapted from or whatever. So what is the point of this awful book? I have no idea. Instead of Harvard, it takes place at Stanford. Elle actually makes a friend in class, but she only seems to be in the book for a few chapters and then disappears. The case she wins at the end is exactly the same. Some names stay exactly the same and some are changed completely. And the character of Elle, you did not like at all, not like in the movie. For the first time, probably EVER, I have to say, the movie was a million times better then the book. Don't even bother with this book, even if you have never seen the movie (WHAT?! Run out and see it NOW!). Do not bother.

I must say my overall impression towards this book still pales much in comparison to the aforementioned movie, but this book did indeed have some redeeming moments and all the excitements portrayed in the movie. That was a plus for me, at least. This can be billed as an empowering book for women in terms of an underestimated heroine beating all the odds against her and proving what she's made of, imparting a message never judge a book by its cover, in this context, by their flashy appearances. That said though, I must say this book didn't deliver such important messages until the very end. I'll restrain myself so as not to be spoilery here but I didn't see as much gumption in Elle as I did in the movie, there was a grave lacking in her 'seriousness' in the book which saddened me the most. The overall execution and the storytelling needs more work, I am afraid. Sometimes it felt excruciating monotonous and drag, some of the things thrown in the book seemed absolutely irrelevant. Again, I ended up being content with the ending but you might want to bear in mind this book is quite different from the movie; the basics are the same, yet you'll see a lot of parts tweaked around and even changed in the movie. I might have enjoyed this book a bit more had I read the book first, but I didn't, so I cannot help but make a lot of comparisons between book vs movie. My bad. Proceed with caution if you pick up this book. I think this book might be an acquired taste; a fun read which is perfect as a respite between heavy books as a means of distraction, but again, you might not be 100% satisfied. I shall give this book 1.5 stars.

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 luck. The book is bloated with extra characters, a secret admirer, and side stories of her family and friends back home--which is so close to Stanford (vs Harvard in the film) that she visits it several times. Vivian is renamed Susan, Paulette is renamed Josette (and is French), and Bruiser is Underdog. The knowledge of perms and haircare still saves the day. I appreciate this book for the base material it provided, but it can't hold a candle to the movie.

    I would give this book negative stars if I could. It's boring, unbelievable and Elle is completely void of any redeeming qualities. I don't think I've ever actually hated a book until I read this. It's not cute, funny or warm. Amanda Brown should be punished for writing this. Stick with the movie version, where Elle has a brain and actually uses it. I would give this book negative stars if I could.

    This is one of the worst novels I've read willingly as an adult - I can't believe it was written by a Stanford law grad. I post this as a public service to anyone who thinks that maybe the novel would have the silly, witty charm of the first movie without the embarrassingly awful parts. Nope, just the embarrassingly awful parts. Proof that Reese Witherspoon saved that script. I need to stop picking books based on movies I've seen.

    Not sure how this pile of tripe managed to inspire such a witty and entertaining film, but anyway. This is one of the worst books I've ever read: illogical, badly written, very weakly characterised and entirely failing to be either amusing or clever. Elle is a despicably lazy and shallow character, far from the likeable heroine of the film. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece but was hoping for something funny and pleasant - it was a chore from page 1. Yuck.

    I love the film, and I was determined to read the book while I was at college, but the book is not a patch on the film. This happens a lot - Hollywood screenwriters tend to be good at their job. A fine idea - blonde California beauty-obsessed girl goes to law school to try to win back rich snobby boyfriend. And then what? Well, the book didn't really progress that idea. Another book/ film on this basic/ improved model is Jumper by Stephen Gould.

The book has one idea and there is no Griffin - Jamie Bell character, no "welcome to the war" between paladins and jumpers. Elle doesn't change much from start to finish of the book, once she takes up the challenge. She doesn't help anyone but herself. She is happy to receive aid though. Helping a blonde client is only furthering her own image of blondes as deserving of help and boosting her own image as a lawyer. She appears to have slept with any man with money, but nobody makes even one pass at her, lovely as she is. Really. It's a college, and she is single, and no guy even asks for a date. Her manicurist is a wallpaper person, as indeed are almost all characters, who have little identity or arc. She still gets moral support from her glamour-obsessed friends in California. While the obsession with Greek letter name clubs in colleges is beyond me. We don't do that in Ireland. We don't have a clue. On the good side, this book encourages education and dedication to success. I have just read a much funnier, much more detailed and much better book called 29 Dates by Melissa de la Cruz, about a Korean girl who comes to study in an American college. I highly recommend it, though it's for a younger target readership. This is an unbiased review.

It dragged on and on, had cliche, drabby characters I wanted to stab, and the ending made me wonder why I was reading the book anyway. Seriously? Anyone who has read the ending knows that things like that only happen in rare, "special" cases. Big emphasis on the special. For what reason, I don't know yet. Gimme a break. This book already drained me of my brain cells, so I'm done. Chick lit is a difficult genre to prefect, in my opinion. Great gals like Meg Cabot and Sophie Kinsella have got it, but even they slip a couple of times. There are very few chick lits that I adore and would re-read. This one, I would more like to burn. And hurl at passerby, which is something I do a lot, apparently. Alrightie, that's 'bout all I've got. It's a small but true rant and that's all, but I feel as though no one should have much to say about a book like this. Ugh.

    What a HUGE disappointment. Prior reviews had warned me that this book was nothing like movie - and that's more than fine when it comes to book-to-movie adaptations. They usually never are the same, and sometimes the changes work, and sometimes they don't.

With regards to the movie version of Legally Blonde, the changes worked so much so that they made a very bad book into a wonderful feel-good comedy. My main issue with the book was Elle Woods - totally lovable in the film, she was nothing short of obnoxious and shallow here. The driving force of getting Elle to law school is the same here: Warner dumps her and she wants to win him back. But while the movie Elle experienced character growth, a changing of priorities, and came out with not only a solid belief in her abilities but also in loving herself especially without a creep like Warner, book Elle spends all but maybe the last fifteen pages trying to get back with Warner. She exhibits no good character traits - unless you count trying to steal back an engaged man and making unfair judgement about geekier classmates as good character traits. The writing was sub-par at best, and the plot honestly didn't exist outside Elle wanting to get back Warner and the auhtor wanting to show you that she did in fact learn some legal terms while she was at law school. I say skip it and just watch the movie. It's 100% better and will let you walk away with a smile on your face and a greater sense of self. Besides, I never give anything 1 star - so with this as my first, you know this isn't a good read.

Although the book gave more details, in my opinion, and for the first time in my life, I have to admit that the movie is better and also more enjoyable. It should have been clarified that the two (the movie and the book) were extremely different. Upon research, I knew certain events and schools did not want to be associated with the book hence why the movie and names were so different. But even so, it is hard to compare both the movie and book because of this. For the book itself. It was okay. I was not amazing to where it made me want to keep reading. That was the disappointing part. The book took me longer to read than most. I know goodreads say one month but honestly, it took me four months for me to try to read and finish this book. It was painfully difficult for me to follow and I felt no attachment to any of the characters. As a huge fan of the movie... so disappointing. I would not deter anyone from reading the book but I also would not recommend it. But if you are a fan of Legally Blonde as a whole and is curious, by all means, read away to your heart's content.

    One of the rare cases where the film is better than the book. Here, Elle skips out on classes to get manicures and go to tanning salons, and on the rare occasion she does go to class, she reads Cosmo under the desk. She only passes her exams because a secret admirer sends her the course work, and she spends the entire book pining for Warner. Also, Elle believes that blondes are discriminated against.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a lot different than the movie and musical. There's no Ernest in the book, and no UPS man either (too bad). But I did love the characters and how Elle still saved the day in the courtroom for Brooke. I also liked the fact that Elle had friends in law school and she did it the smart way in terms of classes - pass/fail. Warner is still a douche. I really enjoyed this book.
