Legally Blonde by Amanda BrownI LOVE the Legally Blonde movie, and I recently saw the musical, (which I also adored). So I was ready to love this book. It turned out to be a disappointed read. I expected difference from the movie; in fact I wanted them. I wanted more details and more funny happenings that were left out. It was different all right, but in all the wrong ways!
There is NO Emmet Forrest in the book. In fact, no love interest for Elle at all. She just spends the entire book moaning over Warner.
Vivian is named Sarah, which is not as posh.
Her nail lady is French, and does not provide any sort of friendship for her (no dog rescue!)
She makes a very good girlfriend in law school.
Elle is a slacker! She never begins to study hard to show them all like she does in the movie/musical. She skips classes to get highlights, reads magazines in class and does not participate. She never rises above to show anyone she can do it.
Brooke has a different last name, but she was not getting lyposuction while her husband was being murdered, she was attending an SA Shoppers Annonymous meeting because she is addicted to shopping. (GAG!) She also used to be fat, had a horrible childhood, an opened a gym/health food place.
In all, this book was a pretty boring read. Elle is not as dynamic as she was on screen. The screenwriters of that movie really get some credit because they created better characters and more appealing situations.

you re your own worst critic
The story is based on the novel Legally Blonde by Amanda Brown and the film of the same name. It tells the story of Elle Woods , a sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner. She discovers how her knowledge of the law can help others, and successfully defends exercise queen Brooke Wyndham in a murder trial. Throughout the show, no one has faith in Elle Woods, but she manages to surprise them when she defies expectations while staying true to herself. In April the show moved to Broadway , opening to mixed reviews and disappointing sales.
She is shown to be strongly affected by her emotions, such as when her undeserving ex-boyfriend, Warner Huntington III broke up with her and she attempted to win him back by attending his college, Harvard Law and when the lecherous Professor Callahan hired her as an intern only to make a sexual advance on her, leading her to believe that she was not a good lawyer after all until Emmett Richmond stopped her just in time from leaving. Elle is a girly, energetic, sweet, and thoughtful and persistent young woman. She loves the color pink along with her dog Bruiser. Although people don't take her seriously and she can be quite ditzy at times, Elle has genius-level intellect and is cunning, aside from witty and open. Even so, she is very humble, recognizing her strength when needed but not making others feel inferior.
