30 Books to Movies: Confessions of a Shopaholic

The book

Becky has a fabulous flat in London's trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is that she can't actually afford it—not any of it.  Her job writing at Successful Savings not only bores her to tears, it doesn't pay much at all. And lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from the bank—letters with large red sums she can't bear to read—and they're getting ever harder to ignore.

She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Becky's only consolation is to buy herself something ... just a little something....

Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life—and the lives of those around her—forever. (source)

Hilarious! Everything that she did, every line that she lies and everything that she brought, make her life turn up and down. Actually she is smart. She just too careless and choose the simple way that she likes.

So easy to hide our problem and pretend to live like nothings wrong. Like she did. I can't believe her thought such as her own solution to solve her debt. When I read it I doubt it would be easy as she thought. She run here, run there. But at the last she have to face it, alone.

My favorite part is the tons of credit card bills or letter or something. Funny to know what she did to keep the bank shut the hell up.

What i get here, it's about manage our life, not only manage your money.

The movie

I already wrote about it before here

The differences are always exist and so here. If the book prefer that Becky shop anything beside clothes, in the movie, Becky seems like obsesses to shop clothes only. It makes the movie look similar as The Devil Wears Prada. So, I am totally choose the book. For me it's way better than the movie =D
