Nothing like the book.
5 April 2019 | by zeemazaSee all my reviews

Seriously?

A blonde lucky?

If you've read the books, then don't watch this. I know you won't be able to resist, but you'll end up regretting it. This is nothing like the book. The cast looks nothing whatsoever like the characters in the books; nothing.

This is nothing but a lame, flat interpretation of an otherwise colorful, full of life, story. None of the details that made the stories so much fun can be seen anywhere. Horrible!
