Thank you for the info. I knew about the programs this season but did not know that you could watch it online as I will be working that evening. I hope the other programs work that way that I will be able to watch them online. I am always disappointed I can't watch the masterpiece classics because I am out.

Thanks for this!

Julie E.

Thank you for the info. I love literary adaptations but always forget to keep an eye on what Masterpiece is doing. Very exciting.

Mimi

Oooooh, that sounds fabulous. I'll have to watch.

Stephanie

Thanks for the heads up! I've already set it up on my DVR and hope to watch the first part sometime this week!

I watched a version of this years ago and the story was disturbing to me. What does everyone think about it? Is this author making good points about the status of women that society or does he just hate women? It just seems like she pays and pays and pays. It's been a while since I saw the older version so my assessment might be off.

LISTEN NOW TO AUTHORS DISCUSSING THEIR BOOKS

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
