The movie was great! I can't wait to read the book.
The best exotic marigold hotel
Good book, easy read and funny. Last few chapters however run together and feels like the writer was in a hurry to finish.
The book is ok, but if you love the movie, don't buy it. Very poetic licence taken making the movie - very disappointed that the characters in the book are sooooo different.
