Witty little book about how little age matters when the spirit is free. ( )

I laughed so hard throughout the movie that I was grateful for the book's existence so I could read what I missed - and the book is just as funny! Maude Chardin is one of the greatest characters ever invented - her take on life (and death) is a treasure to behold. Although the premise might put some potential readers off, don't let it! Absolutely one of my all-time "keeper" books (and, admittedly, DVDs)! ( )

Wonderful novelization of a heart-touching, life-celebrating cult classic film that I watch over and over again--mostly when I'm depressed or when I'm losing faith in mankind. ( )
