seriously disappointed
20 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After reading the book and hearing great things from friends about this series I was very excited to watch it. Unfortunately, after the first episode I felt that the story went way off field from the book, and although it is only "based" on the book, I was expecting it to at least stay true to the main points in the novel. I felt that the characters in the book have been betrayed by the way this series has shown them and rather than falling in love with all of them like I did in the book, I found myself loathing most of them. The book is absolutely fantastic and will keep any reader gripped until the very end. Whilst this, I'm afraid to say, left me actually quite frustrated that people find it so necessary to completely change such a brilliant story.
