Daughter of the King said...

Is 'North & South' the book better or as good as the BBC movie/series version of it? Nutella is awesome! I was introduced to it when I was over in Germany over a decade ago...wow that makes me sound OLD! ....and most of the things you love I love too! ;)

I wouldn't say that one is really better than the other, I saw the BBC series first and found that the book didn't hold my interest quite as well because I already knew the ending. They stayed very close to the book, which I very much appreciate, in general I would say that books are better simply because you get more detail and can take more in.
I can't believe how long it took my family to actually start using Nutella!
