I adore Practical Magic I think it is one of my all time favourite films EVER!!! I don’t think there is anything about the film that I dislike, the actress’s are perfect, their clothes are just fabulous and the set is amazing. I mean who wouldn’t want to live amongst those amazing women, in that house, on that island???
I loved this film from the first time I watched it, I have owned 2 copies of it on VHS and I’m on my 3rd DVD. I will watch it at least twice a month. I was so excited when I managed to source a copy of the book being sold on from an American library, I waited patiently for three weeks for the postman to deliver this much sort after book through my door. Only to be thoroughly disappointed 😦 I found the book so depressing and slow. I really didn’t love the characters the way I thought I would. It took me weeks to read a book i would normally finish in a few days. I don’t even think I would have liked it more if I had read it before watching the film, in fact it would probably have put me off watching a film I adore. It makes a change for me to like a film more than I like the book it’s based on.
Has anyone else read it and been similarly disappointed?
