] I love the movie and highly recommend it, but (this is the "don't hit me" part) I really did not like the book, which I have read twice (once long before I saw the movie and again this past winter, and I must say, I was disappointed both times and did not find it nearly as amusing as I had hoped).
I wasn't reading along with the JA bio, so as soon as my copy of CCF (yes, ordered via Pemberley) I jumped into it. Very un-characteristically for me, I was so very glad to have seen the movie first! Perhaps because of my overall outlook these days, but I doubt I would have caught the humor written in, without having already had the visions from the movie in mind.
I will gladly rewatch CCF (the film), but I will be selling my copy of the book to the re-sale place at the first opportunity.
Ok. That's my limit. See y'all around!
