I absolutely loved the film adaptation of Brooklyn, so much so that I was nervous to read the book. My trepidation was warranted, unfortunately - while Toibin's writing was beautiful, the book didn't evoke the same melancholy that endeared me to the movie. I don't say this very often, but if you have to choose one, I'd pass on the book and watch the film!
