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. Yes Warner was a cad, but he didn't get served his cummupence in quite the style I would have Fantastic narrator! Yes Warner was a cad, but he didn't get served his cummupence in quite the style I would have hoped.
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! View all 11 comments. Sep 07, Rebecca McNutt rated it liked it Shelves: Legally Blonde is a funny novel that breaks rude stereotypes about the "ditzy blonde bimbo", but many of the characters just come off as very annoying even at the best of times.
Oct 07, Rebecca rated it it was ok Shelves: 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 or 4 and the movie came out in So which came first, the book or movie?
Also, I have seen the movie about 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 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. View 1 comment. Apr 24, Aarann rated it liked it. 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.
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 I definitely preferred the Christopher Miles character to the Dr.
Kaplan character in the movie, but I also missed Professor Stromwell in the 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. Jul 29, Ruthie rated it did not like it. 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 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 hilar I'm sorry to say that Legally Blonde is one of the few examples of the movie being better than the book. 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. The movie took this book and improved it all-around. In the movie, Elle realizes early in the school year that Warren is a bonehead, and she takes it upon herself to show him and everyone else that she's just as good as the rest of them.
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 lu Homecoming Queen and sorority president Elle Woods heads to Stanford Law School in order win back her ex, Warren. 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.
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. This was an quick read, but my enjoyment was seriously dampened because the writing style did not gel right with me. And there's a lot of cattiness. Dec 23, Anita Smith rated it did not like it. Believe it or not, I liked the movie a million times more!!!!
Jan 22, Yonaily marked it as to-read. Bend and snap! Aug 21, Gloria rated it did not like it. 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. 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. Nov 20, Ann rated it liked it. View 2 comments. Sep 18, Bella Grace rated it did not like it Shelves: Okay, so I watched the movie before I read the book.
Yes, friends, gasp all you want.
This is unusual behavior for me, too. But thank the Lord Almighty that that happened.
There would have been a close to nil. Hey — write what you know — said some famous old dude. Amanda Brown, speaking on the Legally Blonde DVD special features, said that within a day or two of her being at law school, she realised she had to do something different, as she spent every class reading magazines.
One thing which distinguishes good writers from great writers is their ability to find the voice of their characters that is unique to them.
Unfortunately, in this book all the voices are the same, as the characters are just acting as a voice-piece for the author who is trying to reveal all the information needed in between descriptions of jewellery, hair, etc. Amanda seems confused about whether her writing style is third person limited, or third person omniscient.
We follow around Elle, and are privy only to her thoughts and experiences, however on occasion she slips in details that Elle would not know. Emmett, Professor Stromwell, Paulette and Professor Callaghan are conspicuously absent from the book. Instead, Elle has a friend called Eugenia but they lack any chemistry on page to get me interested in their storyline.
Instead of Callaghan representing Brooke Windham, there is a lawyer called Miles whom Elle asks out and uses her sorority knowledge base to get herself hired for the case. I have to mention the bizarre Warner subplot of the novel — he really wants to be a film director, but his family wants him to be a lawyer and marry someone serious like Sarah. Instead, Elle decides that she wants to make a legal themed jewellery line.
Even Elle winning the murder trial was a pale comparison to the film; she basically raised her hand and asked to question the witness. Everything I love about the movie is missing from this book; Emmett, Professor Callaghan, Holland Taylor giving badass advice, Elle working hard, female friendship, Dorky David with sandwich in his mouth.
Instead, these things are replaced by more stereotypes, bitterness and generally unlikeable characters. Suddenly she felt completely sure that tonight was the night. They drove for a while in contented silence, the cool air of a California October night blowing the golden blow-dried strands of her hair.
She glowed as she placed her unadorned left hand on top of his. The model loomed over them, a bronzed work of art. Elle stared at Warner's golden profile with adoration and thought how lucky she was and how she'd be even luckier by the end of this glorious night.
Elle's entrance into the Ivy caused a stir. Even here, where every night the restaurant was filled with long-legged blondes and movie stars, her radiant beauty and sweet smile made her stand out.
Several men tried to get her attention as she and Warner made their way to their table. Warner wore a look of satisfaction as he observed the other men admiring Elle.
A waiter of the L. Elle and the waiter exchanged puzzled glances, and she began to protest, but was silenced when Warner ordered a bottle of Cristal. He must be so nervous, she thought, and immediately felt sorry for him as he got ready to ask the biggest question of his life.
She lowered her head and looked up through her Chanel-enhanced lashes. He motioned the waiter to pour the champagne. Elle just knew this was it. Maybe it was a little odd that Warner wasn't waiting until after dinner, when the ring could be nestled in creme brulee, but, she reasoned, he must be too overcome with nerves to wait.
Yes I will marry you! She could hear the pealing of wedding bells in her head and was wondering if she should go with Vera Wang or a completely unknown but soon-to-be-famous dress designer when Warner's voice invaded her reverie. Elle frowned, somewhat disconcerted by the use of the word "reminder.
Then she remembered what Serena said Cosmo said about how nervous Brad Pitt had been when he asked Jennifer to marry him, and she smiled at his clumsy word choice. It was so adorable! She closed her eyes again, only to open them again in confusion as she felt Warner turn her left hand over so the palm faced up. It had been engraved Elle and Warner forever. Elle stared at him in disbelief. His words began to blur and she shook her head to clear her thoughts.
We're not going to be together forever, Elle. You know that. It was a sweet thought, but I've decided to turn my life around and get serious. I think we should make a clean break before I leave for Stanford Law School. When she didn't and just stared at him he continued quickly. That's the good news I wanted to tell you.I object. Like three of their cover brides, including Courtney Thorne-Smith, were divorced before the issue hit the stand!
Sullenly, she agreed. Specifically, how there isn't an Emmett in the book - in other words, no romantic interest. Warner looked around the restaurant nervously. 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.
She could hear the pealing of wedding bells in her head and was wondering if she should go with Vera Wang or a completely unknown but soon-to-be-famous dress designer when Warner's voice invaded her reverie. Clinically, anyway. Elle snuggled against him; her smile lit up the room as her delight to be with him radiated from her.
Yes Warner was a cad, but he didn't get served his cummupence in quite the style I would have Fantastic narrator!
