As a fan of the novel & the telenovela, I love it
24 June 2016 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

I greatly enjoyed the original story, the book La Reina del Sur by Arturo Pérez-Reverte. I listened to the English translation on audiobook and was drawn in to Teresa's story.

The telenovela, starring the amazing Kate del Castillo, was a wild and intense ride. It greatly expanded the 'world' of Teresa and we got to spend more time actually with her and seeing her experiences rather than in the book where it was mostly told from outsider POV.

What I like about this new show is that it seems to be walking a nice line between the more serious and down to Earth aspects of the novel while injecting the adrenaline pounding flash as well as first person focus on Teresa that the telenovela did.

The changes are enough that you kind of know what's going to come next, but not really so you are still tense with anticipation and worry.

The writing, acting and directing really feel on point and I'm super excited to see where the next 12 (and hopefully more) episodes go.
