Madame Doubtfire Kindle Ê Paperback I am sadly currently writing this review in the wake of Robin Williams death Williams was a truly marvellous actor and comedian, and I feel Hollywood, as well as the world, has lost a true gem tonight.I m not going to lie, I remember being incredibly confused reading this when I was a kid I adored the movie, so when I heard it had been inspired by this book,

Williams death Williams was a truly marvellous actor and comedian, and I feel Hollywood, as well as the world, has lost a true gem tonight.I m not going to lie, I remember being incredibly confused reading this when I was a kid I adored the movie, so when I heard it had been inspired by this book, obviously I decided to read this book immediately The problem was, the movie wasn t exactly faithful to the book, and I remember being incredibly confused reading this because the characters in the books seemed a lot different.For example, in this book Madame Doubtfire smokes I remember being extremely confused by this because it always reminded me of the funny scene in the film where Mrs Doubtfire pretends to be a smoker, and comes up with a funny story about having quit smoking, but she likes to sit in the smokers area to inhale the fumes Daniel uses this as a ploy, so that he can change out of his Mrs Doubtfire get up in between meals.Also, in the book the characters were British Again this confused me, because obviously the film was American But I guess that before Harry Potter came along, it was common practice for American film makers to change British characters into American characters.Confusion aside, I remember loving this book and it may seem a little unfair, but I m afraid I m going to have to give this book 4 stars instead of 5, just because a small part of me kind of preferred the movie I think this was down to Williams brilliant acting and comical wit, which is why I am so upset about his death, I can t even put it into words RIPRobinWilliams I didn t know there was a book that inspired the movie until I watched the special features of Mrs Doubtfire on DVD I went out and got the book right away and started reading it The chapters are long but you wouldn t know that from reading this book The story flows so eloquently that it s hard to put it down.The story of Miranda and Daniel are one that many children today,so than ever, have to deal with because of the divorce of their parents What made this story so special was the wr I didn t know there was a book that inspired the movie until I watched the special features of Mrs Doubtfire on DVD I went out and got the book right away and started reading it The chapters are long but you wouldn t know that from reading this book The story flows so eloquently that it s hard to put it down.The story of Miranda and Daniel are one that many children today,so than ever, have to deal with because of the divorce of their parents What made this story so special was the writing was so real You had real arguments between the parents that would blow up in front of the children, just like in real life The children were forced to find coping mechanisms to handle the stress placed on them The movie story line and book story line cross at certain points and use certain lines in the book in the movie I could see how the writers of the film were able to construct the outline of the story.In reading this book you would almost think that the book came after the movie because of how Daniel talked throughout The character truly matched how Robin Williams would have talked in the movie You have this humor side, this childlike quality, but also this parental figure for his children It was a near perfect match I have seen the movie so many times growing up that it was hard to picture any other characters in the book I could see Robin Williams saying everything he did in that book, including Sally Field and the young actors.I didn t realize the story came from the UK until they started mentioning teatime and pounds and names of places The whole time I kept picturing San Francisco as the setting because that was where they lived in the movie.This book will only addto what took place in the film You get a better sense of how they were in their own homes but also how the children felt about the whole mess, because that s what divorce creates, a mess If parents would only take the time to think about that and communicatebefore having kids, there would be less of a need for therapy for adults.If you enjoyed the movie then you will love this book for it s realism It is a great bedtime read and funny at certain parts and sad and touching at others The story moves very fast so try to savor those arguments because they mean so much.Quick movie fact Director Chris Columbus decided to change the ending and keep them separate instead of Daniel going back to work for her He wanted to make sure that the movie really stuck to how most divorce families end up The book is good but the movie is better I mean being a bookworm it does not mean you stick to the idea that the book shall always better than the movie over, there was Robin Williams in it and you know how perfectly he pulls of Danielle there.who does not like a movie RW in it duh oh okay sorry it s a book review not a movie But ROBIN WILLIAMS man I don t think I would have enjoyed Madame Doubtfire even as a kid The emotionally fraught parts of it probably wouldn t have bothered me the family torn apart by divorce, etc, though it would bother some children but I would have been too embarrassed by the whole charade for words, and that s how I feel now, as an adult.It s an attempt at realism, really despite the rather whacky concept It deals with things the children might really think and feel, and with problems parents might wel I don t think I would have enjoyed Madame Doubtfire even as a kid The emotionally fraught parts of it probably wouldn t have bothered me the family torn apart

despite the rather whacky concept It deals with things the children might really think and feel, and with problems parents might well have with their former partners Some children might find it funny, but eek I couldn t.Looking forward to the lecture on this I m sure there ll be plenty to say about it More like 2.5 Stars This was probably the harshest not to say it wasn t fairly well written , most depressing kid s book I ve read A realistic and extremely uncomfortable portrayal of the effects of a nasty divorce aftermath on the children being yanked in both directions That said, I ll stick with the movie from now on. A 3 star rating to me is somewhere between a 5.5 and 7 on a 10 point scale The movie ruined the book for me It is one of my favourites and I can watch it over and over again Robin Williams is brilliant and so this the movie s added feature of Dan being a voice actor I think that gave the story a lotdepth The book was missing that depth And the fact that the children view spoiler knew from the start that Dan was Doubtfire and Miranda didn t made the story seem a lotplausible A 3 star rating to me is somewhere between a 5.5 and 7 on a 10 point scale The movie ruined the book for me It is

read and I definitely enjoyed it, but it wasn t a masterpiece unlike the movie adaptation The film is better than the book It was a bit of a shock to find out that it was firstly a book and secondly by an author that I have read a couple of books of as a child I can t say i was into her books much back then Thirdly it is most definitely British and written in the way books were back in the early 90s and before where the children sounded so awfully posh So prim and proper Ugh.I kind of preferred it as American as I coughs not quite match Robin Williams up to this version And The film is better

American as I coughs not quite match Robin Williams up to this version And who cannot love Robin as Mrs Doubtfire It isn t a funny book although i think its constant reference to embarrassing male nudity was meant to be amusing Now seems a tad immature.Both parents came across badly, but Daniel seemed to beof a twat The film he was immature and not very responsible but still likeable and by the end you could respect him Book Dan if accounts were true was a dick and a bit lame The end felt a little too wrapped up considering what had happened, the film version feltrealistic to this end Written as Young Adult fiction, however to me it feelsa children s story in tone and style Maybe that reflects the differences in books written nowadays for YA and those written in the early nineties and eighties Fine was aiming for realism by writing about a sadly common occurring family issue Maybe it pales now in comparison to the film, but the humour fell flat and it felt a little ham fisted at the end, as if written for the parents rather than children Which perhaps explains three slightlyadult humour inserted into it I think it wasehnot as good as the movie Then again, they never

there and leave them there until the next morning.It ended with Dan reading and later reciting by memory a book and the kids and Daniel holding hands.Okay ending I was hoping forthoughI m not sure what Not really a bad book that being said it s very misleading It offers the promise of being really funny but instead it s just incredibly sad, as the children in the story are thrown around through their parents messy divorce And if you ve ever seen the 1990 s Robin Williams film adaptation, this book will likely be just a big disappointment to you. Lydia, Christopher and Natalie are used to domestic turmoil Their parents divorce has not made family life any easier in either home The children bounce to and from their volatile mother, Miranda, and their out of work actor father, Daniel Then Miranda advertises for a cleaning lady who will look after and mind the children after work and Daniel gets the job, disguised as Madame Doubtfire This bittersweet, touching and extremely funny book inspired the highly successful film Mrs Doubtfire , starring Robin Williams
