Confession About the Shopoholic Novels

I don’t like them. I might enjoy the movie, specifically because of Patrica Field’s work. Though her work here is too camp for the heroine, as described in the books themselves, I love how she uses fashion to tell a story. That and I think Isla Fisher is a funny actress. Considering the changes they made, and my lack of loyalty to the books , I actually want to see it. I think the movie should be fun.

So why didn’t I like the books? I thought Becky Bloomwood was too blasted stupid! Her spending wasn’t cute, funny or believable, it was just crazy. There was nothing in her behaviour that I could relate to, even if it required suspending my disbelief. I just couldn’t like the character, like the Fug Girls I just wanted to slap her.
