Wives and Daughters

Yaaay! My new book finally arrived! I ordered the Wives and Daughters book and the DVD a couple of weeks ago. The DVD set arrived last week, and for the last few days I've been waiting for the book to get here. I've read North and South by Mrs Gaskell, and I'm looking forward to reading another classic from this all-but-forgotten writing genius. I'll have to post a review on here when I finish reading it . . .

You can buy the W & D DVD set here, or buy the book here.

I can highly recommend Penguin Classics editions for all the classics. They're very good quality paperbacks, and they will usually include a well-written introduction as well as notes throughout the text.

I hope you enjoy reading Wives and Daughters. [Read the book before you watch it!] actually, I have read it but haven't seen the film yet. I am waiting for it to turn up at the library. However, I have given it a little review here:
Don't let my opinions influence you though! chuckle.

Hi Theresa! thanks for dropping by. I actually watched the first couple of episodes last week when it arrived (I know, I'm a naughty girl!) but now that the book's arrived I think I might try to read it before I watch the rest of the DVDs.
