    I have yet to read the book, but this adaptation was so exceptio

    I have yet to read the book, but this adaptation was so exceptional that I will definitely read it now. The direction and acting was terrific, from the very first scene to the last I was captivated. I love a good drama and this exceeded my expectations. I didn't really agree or understand why Isabelle left, I found that rather silly, but perhaps reading the book will clarify. I highly recommend watching this more, even more so, its a great story so try to read the book first!!
