Not worth it
30 May 2018 | by SpottedtigrrSee all my reviews

I love the novel and I've seen the 2004 mini-series. I watched this one on YouTube after reading a review that said it was more faithful to the book than the more recent one. I disagree. It is more like the book than the 2004 series in some ways, but not in other ways. It lacks emotional nuance and character motivations are completely lost. I'm glad I didn't buy it.
