The Books are so much better!!
11 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Books are so much better!! Shetland is gorgeous, without doubt, but the TV versions of the Ann Cleeves books seem to make the whole thing a bit dull some how, as well as changing a lot with regard to the characters (Jimmy Perez has swarthy dark features linking his genes to the Armada; Raven Black is the first in the series & many characters are switched or different). It's really disappointing as I had looked forward to seeing these brought to screen. If you enjoyed the episodes though, do go & try the books (of the same name) as they bring so much more & the descriptions of all the Isles makes you feel you are there in those landscapes & within those communities. The stories themselves are much richer, & in depth.
