An unusual celebration I'm sure but one that sparked a flurry of discussion around this most famous author.
I have to confess that I've started many a Dickens title but never managed to get further than the first chapter.
I'd hoped that perhaps this might be the year that I bridged this gap.
My interest was piqued when I saw "Great Expectations" pop up as a new mini-series on ABC tv.
As you know, I'm not a fan of seeing a movie or tv series prior to reading a book, and as I've not read this one I was in two minds, but with an hour to spare I decided to make an exception.
I've just finished watching the first episode and what a rich gift of dark and devilish characters and all sorts of possibilities unfolded before me.
If you'd like to take a peek, click here [not sure if the link will work beyond Aussie shores] and let me know what you think. I adored the opening sequence, I'm sure you'll see why.
Happy weekend, I hope that the days unfold wonderfully and more than exceed your expectations.
