Based on the beginning, I didn’t think I was going to like it, but it surprised me multiple times and I enjoyed it. ( )

A relationship story with more depth than most. Totally understood Rose the serious lawyer, liked finding out the thinking of the free spirit sister Maggie, took awhile to figure out the importance of the senior citizens. I liked how all of their lives grew and changed especially where it started with college life for Maggie and what was Ella's role in the story. Good theme of how important sisters and having a family are to life. ( )

I picked up In Her Shoes because I was having a hard time, and I thought a book whose story was familiar would be easier to read. The book is better than the movie.

I love books that are about non-romantic intimate relationships and, as you know, this book is really about Rose and Maggie. I felt the book was really much more nuanced. Not only were there more characters and the characters - even side characters - had more depth (I missed the pool crowd when re-watching the movie on TV). I read one review that claimed "Oh, it was just the typical trope of the smart girl and the pretty girl" but I couldn't disagree more: the book shows that they've actually been pushed into these roles because they do not show the typical features of the other role (Rose isn't a thin classic beauty and Maggie isn't traditionally smart) and being cast as such as had consequences for their lives, but they actually are both beautiful and smart in their own way and get to shine when accepted as such.

I hate when people summarize a book; I have the blurb, both on the book and on GoodReads (you aren't doing a better job than the professional) and they often reveal details that spoil the book. So let me just say there's entire plotlines cut out of the adaptation - which is normal, because there's only so much time in a movie. However, the time that Maggie spent at Princeton really showed her having more depth; as well, she has much more agency in the book. Ella has a life beyond just trying to help Maggie (though she does put a lot of effort into creating a relationship), and doesn't have to bribe Maggie. Simon and Rose have issues but they do not break up in the book, and she doesn't have to be coerced. There's actually build through the entire novel. As well, some of the changes in the movie really made them more flat.

I think one of the biggest complements I can give the book is that poetry is a central feature and the book inspired me to try reading poetry again (except for song lyrics, I have not read poetry since I was forced in high school). Weiner really made poetry seem accessible, even for a dyslexic like me. I bought my first poetry books (I tried two) and have started even writing silly little things when it hits me - a few little lines in my planner/BuJo while commuting on the bus, or another few lines waiting for a meeting to start. Now, since everybody actually thinks I am not a Maggie but a Rose (due to similarity in our appearance), I just need my own Simon!

Originally, I rated the book as 4 stars. I really don't give 5 stars often because something has to be magical or life-changing to get that last star. I didn't realize it immediately, but considering I started reading poetry concurrently and writing again, it really did have some magic for me.

If you like the movie and/or like non-romantic relationships, read the book. ( )

Re-read this summer; one of the ultimate summer chick reads, as well as movies. :-) ( )
