OK, I didn't like it one bit
on September 8, 2010
As I write this, there is only one other review on Amazon.ca and they loved it. Well, I didn't. The acting is superb, no doubt about that, so I gave it three stars. I just didn't like the story. I found it very dark, and as a mini-series it just went on, and on, and on, with frankly unloveable characters for the most part. It was excruciatingly painful to watch until the end, and when there is a sudden burst of horrendous violence all I could think of was "of course this would happen in a show like this." Yes, I know it was an adaptation of the book, but I have not read the book and after watching this, will never put myself through the downer of the book as well. Just so you know.
