I thoroughly enjoy Sophie Kinsella's books. As an English professor, I spend a great deal of time studying serious, classical, canonical literature, and I need something light and fun to help me relax. Kinsella's works always capture my interest, and they can make me laugh no matter how stressed I am.
I don't understand why Kinsella's works have not been made into movies in the vein of the _Bridget Jones_ series of films. While I think all of the Kinsella works that I've read would make wonderful movies, I would like to see this book in particular as a film. It would be interesting to watch how the more fun, casual Lexie of before the accident and the more sophisticated, business-like Lexie after are portrayed by the same actress. When I read this book, my mind sees very different hair styles, wardrobe, jewelry, and accessories for the two "versions" of Lexie. Those visual differences would lend themselves well to film.
Come on, Hollywood; get with it. Instead of remaking movies we already have and releasing new works that are usually not as good as the original, make some movies based on Kinsella novels. Don't even think of relocating the action to the U.S. and using American actors. The _Bridget Jones_ movies were very popular, weren't they? 'Nuff said. :-D
