    Doesn't Really Leave With A Smile, But I'll Still Mildly Recommend It

    UCLA graduate, magna cum laude, on the dean's list in 'The Art Review', thirty year old Californian Katherine Ann Watson has been hired to take on the role as an instructor of Art History 100 in 1953 at the country's most conservative college; Wellesley. She wanted to transplant her West Coast bohemian standards to amend the starchy, traditionalist, and conformist style of New England. You might call her a feminist. Katharine commences her first class in a lecture hall, filled with students wearing casual classy outfits; strands of pearls, crisp blouses, and cardigan sweaters. She proceeds the class with a slideshow, and for every one, a student would call out the name, date, and the paintings origin. One of those students is Joan Brandwyn, a blond pre-law senior class president, straight A student, president of the Poetry Society, captain of the debate team, etc. Joan is torn between the choice of wedding her beau, Tommy, or to attend Yale Law School. There's also Elizabeth 'Betty' Warren, daughter of the president of the Alumnae Association. A snipy and devoted conventionalist, Betty is the student that Katherine would not be fond of. Then, of course, there's Giselle Levy, the New York Jew, who sleeps with the Italian professor, Bill Dunbar (who is attracted to Katherine). Katherine had no idea she would be challenging the 'smartest women in the country.' She opened up an unknown world to the girls and taught them to look beyond the image. I have viewed the film before reading the novelization. It was neither Oscar nor Razzie worthy. It was just a film that goes into the conservative '50s, with not very good climax and resolution. Not to mention subplots. The book is not an adult novel, merely full of teenage angst and the hopes and aspirations of women. 'Mona Lisa Smile' has a lot of sexual language, slurs, and other strong profanities. I recommend it to 13-17 year old females, since it is not laudable and it seems to slightly prod the ambition in a young unsure person.

    Just kept going

    I was very scared about buying this book but after reading it I was so happy I bought it. The book was wonderful to me. I could not put it down. It was easy to read and it kept you on edge.

    Barely kept a smile

    This book lacks the formality of a novel, it is written without description or continuity, and lacks flow. The story was not as bad as the writting.

    A fast read

    The book was a very fast read. It was an okay book, not the best that I have ever read but worth reading. I am excited to see the movie when it comes out Dec. 12th.
