3 Good but slightly overratedDiamondsAreForever | 14/12/2007 | See all DiamondsAreForever's reviews (459)Top 100 Electronics Reviewer Top 100 Gadgets Reviewer I'd had the book for a while and was a bit curious to see what the TV version was like - don't get me wrong, its good - but a bit overrated. It just seems to be the same thing every episode. Piper is a good actress, and she has courage for taking on such a risque role, but it almost feels as if something is missing from the TV series. You never really get to see Belle as a two dimensional character. I'm sure the REAL Belle De Jour would agree. Buy it if you are a fan, but if your easily offended, don't!
