Practical Magic

I just finished Reading Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman

While I really enjoyed the book, I will say I feel like it is nothing like the movie. I recommended it to a few friends, some of which were sad to hear this last statement but others were happy because they felt they didn't really believe Sally's character in the movie and the book, I feel, explains her better.

I still really love the movie, and wouldn't have changed it at all.

I really love the theme of true love vs obsession in the book as well as the Maiden Mother Crone theme evident of 2 maidens, the 2 aspects of the mother/huntress and the 2 crones. It would be a good book to do papers on in high school or college.

How did you all feel about it?
