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 . . .
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.
