Well said, Linda! I found the book moderately entertaining but mostly intensely irritating. I'm astounded at the number of times I've seen it described as "brilliant" in recent days by various female columnists. It wasn't even very good as a novel - poor characterisation, weak plot development, no suspense, just one long polemic about something I struggle to care about, namely rich people's childcare problems. The novel makes the point that the husband (who is completely flat as a character) earns less than she does, which to me showed an easy way to solve the problem - why didn't he just give up work to look after the kids? I think it's pretty much guaranteed that I will hate the film. As so many people commented at the time the book came out, it should have been called "I don't know why she does it."
