At the start, both women are in denial of their true sexual orientation, Tala getting engaged for the fourth time and Leyla dating also. Their boyfriends are good, honest men, practically perfect, but the women don't feel any passion for them. But then they meet each other, and there is no longer any denying what they feel...
I watched the film a year ago and loved it. I have finally got around to reading the book, and my memories of the film are vague enough that the book is full of discovery, but the film certainly influences the way I imagine places and people in the story. I would actually recommend that people watch the film before reading the book, although this is not necessary.
Both film and book have their faults, and I almost feel I should take a star from each, but ultimately I enjoyed them so much for so many different reasons that it would be churlish to do so.
★★★★★ (Film & Book)
Wonderful writing, at times touching and at others hysterically funny. Definitely worth my fairly rare 5 star rating.
P.S Haven’t seen the film yet – will definitely be looking into seeing it now!
