I read the book The Ring, by Danielle Steel, when i was around 13 or 14, and very quickly became hooked on all of her books. This was one of her best works, and I often re-read it, and knew the story inside out. Often wished they would turn it into a film, but it never happened.
Life moves on, and as teenage years turn into adulthood, lo and behold, what do i accidentally come across on TV during the Easter holidays, but Danielle Steel's "The Ring"! WOW!! What I had been waiting for, all those years ago! This TV movie didn't quite meet up to my expectations of how the story would look on screen, but its an excellent effort. The cast is pretty good - (Manfred is lovely!!) and lets just say, at the beginning, during and after I often found tears running down my cheeks.
Recommended if you have read the book, but still recommended even if you haven't. I admit, most of Danielle Steel's stuff is pretty corny, with disaster following disaster, then happy ending, but, just lose yourself in the film, take it as it is meant, and enjoy!!! I did!
