    At the staid Marcia Blaine School for Girls, in Edinburgh, Scotland, teacher extraordinaire Miss Jean Brodie is unmistakably, and outspokenly, in her prime. She is passionate in the application of her unorthodox teaching methods, in her attraction to the married art master, Teddy Lloyd, in her affair with the bachelor music master, Gordon Lowther, and--most important--in her dedication to "her girls," the students she selects to be her creme de la creme. Fanatically devoted, each member of the Brodie set--Eunice, Jenny, ... Show more

While I liked this book, I have to admit I liked the movie better. I didn't get the same sense of drama from the printed page, as I did watching Maggie Smith bring the part to life. It was, however, a good read.

A really good book

by battala on Apr 3, 2007

I really liked this book. This is one of those books which once you read you know has a much deeper meaning than what's on the surface level. This book follows the lives of a set of pupils belonging to the infamous Miss Jean Brodie. Supposedly she is a fascist (this book is set in the 1930s). The heroine is fascinating. She is hated, feared, and respected and finding out about her is like being let in on a dirty secret. She is scandolous. I loved seeing what kind of people her pupils grew up to be. Rose is probably the most memorable seeing as how most people would be shocked and intrigued by a young sex symbol. I definitely want to read this book again. It was a fun and short read.
