This book has been on my reading list for so long and I stubbornly waited because I wanted it to the be the 1st Perrotta book to read via my list. Happened upon it at Boomerangs new Central Square Cambridge location. It's a bit ironic reading a book after so long post movie Hollywood adaption and hearing Tom Perrotta speak twice now on literally panels. The last time at the Fall 2010 Boston Book festival where he admitted the film director hijacked one of the main characters and made his own version, which I agree with to a point...although I think they are all versions of Lolita but I'm putting off that book for confirmation for a little bit more. He also said he visited the set and met actor Matthew Broderick who quipped: "There's a book?" Which post-reading and having previously seen the film, rings even sadder to me. It's an interesting book set from all different points of view. Setting aside for the June 2011 Boston bookcrossing meetup!

'Election' is the best of the three Tom Perrotta novels I've read. Well-written and completely held my interest (read in one day), even though seeing the film gave me an idea how everything would unfold. But the ending is completely different and satisfying (the book ending would not have worked on film). Tracy Flick is also a more empathetic in the novel, although Reese Witherspoon plays a wonderfully self-serving Tracy in the movie.
