Monica Dickens turned a loved musical, into a charming, classic book! Her purpose was to put the prized storyline into literature that would appeal to the young and old.

Monica’s theme throughout the story is, “Do what makes you happy!” Eliza, the main character, begins working on the [...]
I read this book quickly because it was a fun read. The writing style is emotional and compellingbut compelling toward what, is the question.

The adaptation of the play based on Shaw's "Pygmalion". I have not seen the play so I honestly can not compare it to the play. I have seem and love the movie however as we know movies can be quite different than the original written piece of work. I can only look at it as a stand alone piece of work. It is cute and charming. A decent short read. However my heart will always lie with the movie.

This book follows the story of the movie but with a little extra meat, it gives you a great insight to the time period and more of an insight into the characters. It's a really quick read, only took me a couple of hours so if your a fan of the movie then it's worth a read!
This was a good quick read, but since I'm not sure how much of the back story that's in this that I didn't get from the movie "My Fair Lady" is actually a part of the original story.
