Confessions of a Shopaholic is now in theaters, so I thought it would be a good idea to read the book before seeing the movie, particularly since Can You Keep a Secret?, also by Sophie Kinsella, was so good.
The book is about what you'd expect. The main character spends more than she can afford, and needs to figure out how to get a hold on her spending habits. For about the first 2/3 of the book, she is a pretty annoying character because she keeps spending and thinks if she doesn't read the bills, maybe someone else will pay them. However, the end of the book is pretty good and redeems the story, for the most part.
I have a feeling this is going to be a situation where the movie is better than the book, but I will report back after I've seen it.
