I normally do this the other way round, having read the book several times I go see the movie.
It did not disappoint. I could imagine the reading of the other letters that
were not included in the movie and it was quite a surreal feeling.
Also until I read the book I did not realize that Charing Cross Road was a real place. The whole book is based on a collection of correspondence between Helene Hanff, an avid book reader, and Frank Doel an agent for British bookseller.
My wife has taken this one step further and is collecting all the books that were mentioned in the correspondence. Some of these books appear to have been reprinted due to this publication.
If you can find it there is a book called "The Library of Helen Hanff."
I wonder what became of all the other people described in the correspondents after the book.
This is a gentle book which ambles along at no great pace but is none the less gripping. I find it hard to put down. This is not an action book but ideal for a sunday afternoon read.
