After having read the book, I would say that the part of Miss Charming must have been written with actress Jennifer Coolidge in mind, because she fits exactly what the character is in the book, based on seeing her in other shows, not to mention her looks. I'm not sure that Keri Russell fits my image of the main character Jane. According to the book I imagine someone not skinny or with no figure, which to me is Keri Russell. The guys can look like however, I'm good with that.
The book is very good, humorous, romantic, etc. While there are things Jane does that I'm like, STOP! Give him a chance! Don't be stupid! I guess if you're in that type of situation and not sure what is real, I can see doing that. Of course Jane has to sneak her cell phone in, and of course it almost gets her kicked out, except she is saved by Miss Heartwright unexpectedly. The ending is pretty much what you'd expect. Now, I will admit I've only ever read one Jane Austen story, Sense and Sensibility. I chose to read that during my phase of reading classics instead of Pride and Prejudice, because I'd seen that movie. I wasn't a fan of Sense and Sensibility, so I think I'll stick to the movies which will get me past the hard to read books themselves. And that's okay. Now, I'm really excited to see the movie!
