Wonderful
22 April 2006 | by pjsg13See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this piece of drama. I have read the book so many times now that I have lost track as it is one of those stories that you can go back to time and again as it is about good overcoming evil. it has that good feel factor about it that makes you want to scream with anger, cry with pain and celebrate with wonder at the outcome. It has romance and intrigue and comedy. The mini series from 1977 was beautifully portrayed by the actors involved and certainly did justice to the original story line. I for one would really appreciate a copy for my own so maybe one of the DVD or video companies will take the initiative and humour those of us that appreciated good talent and creativity for the 70's.
