      I'm glad other people are watching this. I read the book when I was 12. This is the only time I've found the film/TV version better than the book. The book can be very tedious at times, with the main events shown on the TV show cropping up after endless pages of navel-gazing and self-pity, and Logan Mountstuart comes across as a self-obsessed **** so you laugh when bad things happen to him.

      I felt much more sorry for him on TV because you can't read his inner thoughts, and all the events happen in quick succession so it's exciting and interesting. I like Land Fothergill for some reason, and the name Land.

      Freya is a ***** though. :teehee:

        Try it, you might like it a lot more than I did.

        The first episode seemed to be a lot of sex padded out with a bit of story.
