Yes Eve, I'm loving it so far, so much darker than the TV series, and how can you find an actor to fit the way Dickens describes them! Impossible!....Mr Quilp......"But what added most to the grotesque expression of his face, was a ghastly smile, which, appearing to be the mere result of habit and to have no connection with any mirthful or complacent feeling, constantly revealed the few discoloured fangs that were yet scattered in his mouth, and gave him the aspect of a panting dog."..... Wonderful!
Oh that's brilliant, I love Great Expectations, are you saying Gillian Anderson will be Miss Haversham? Can't wait!
Hi love, I've just had an email to say you've posted me a note. I don't know where to find it on the site, I can only access it from the email! Anyway, not a problem. I have been adding as you can see! I've just finished "the cement garden" OMG that was one of the most disturbing books I've ever read, I can't say I enjoyed it, it was so dark, but brilliantly written. Will speak to you tonight, J xx
