By Uenna TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is arguably the finest of John Jakes books made into a bestseller miniseries. The tale of two families -( the Hazards from the North and the Maine's from the South) bound by an inspiring friendship and how this is tested to the hilt by the impending civil war and what happens to them during the civil war and after the war. The three compelling books of John Jakes - Book1 -North and South; Book 2 - Love and War; Book 3-Heaven and Hell are brought to life with two dashing leads - James Read as George Hazard and Patrick Swayze as Orry Maine, whose friendship developed on the way to WestPoint military academy, matured into a bond that would surpass any blood ties at WestPoint, and this friendship linked the two families in a way blood relationships linked families. The impending civil war would threaten to tear their friendship and business apart as each must stand up for their way of life.

The account of the civil war is historically accurate and the battle scenes well-done. The book 1 and book 2 stayed faithful to the book with some minor alterations, but in book three the script writers took so much creative liberty that it is almost unrecognisable from the book. I understand availability of cast members had a lot to do with this; all the same book three is somewhat of a let down

This complete edition box set contains the three books on DVD. One of the best things about this miniseries is the Music by Bill Conti, which earned him an Oscar and rightfully so too. The music is unbelievable, one of the best movie music ever written.

3.0 out of 5 stars North & South the missing bits 20 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
I recently purchased the SO-CALLED complete collection of North & South
from you, only to find that large sections of the story are missing .
As both my wife & myself watched the original version on T.V. & have also
been watching the re-runs on SKY , we were very dissappointed,because the missing sections are crucial to the overall story.

4.0 out of 5 stars North and South TV series 10 Oct 2010
By Linlo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the series and was pleased to be able to buy it at a good price.As Patrick Swayze
died earlier this year it's an opportunity to see him once more in a dramatic role.
The historical background is interesting and the relationship between the two main characters and their families
gives the audience a clear idea of the differences in their background,interests and beliefs...and their struggle to remain friends during and after the civil war.

1.0 out of 5 stars extremely edited version 24 Nov 2012
Format:DVD
I watched this series many years ago when it originally aired on sky tv and subsequently bought all three books on video afterwards, which have been viewed many times. I was bought the DVD version as a present around three years ago, but never found the time to watch it until recently. I was extremely disappointed to find that my copy of book one is just over 4 hours long and edited beyond it being reasonable to watch. The copy I had on VHS was nearly 9 hours long and a fantastic series to watch. I haven't had the heart to watch beyond the first book as I guess that the rest will have been stripped to the bare bones as well.
My dilema is that my copy was not purchased from amazon and although the cover looks the same I am wondering if the version here is the full or edited one. There are 2 reviewers who have said parts have been cut from their dvds so are they all edited or are some faulty. My copy did state book 1 was nearly 9 hours long but isn't. I would be grateful if someone could clarify if this complete collection is around 22 hours long as stated, as I would then purchase it again, as the full version is fantastic and well worth viewing. I wish now I had watched my copy when purchased as it would have been returned for a refund

5.0 out of 5 stars North & South 19 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this series the first time around and thoroughly enjoyed reliving all the excitement and romance of the American Civil War once again, with the added bonus of Patrick Swayze. The third series was not up to the first two, though, since it lacked most of the main characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars The most memorabe of the 80s? 7 May 2011
By PetraE
Format:DVD
I watched this series first when I was nine years old and fel madly in love with pretty much everything about it. The story was great, the characters interesting, the clothes were out of this world and the setting during the Civil War made it absolutely fascinating to watch. I've since re-watched it as an adult a couple of times and can't help but love it just as much now. However, the third part of the series isn't at all as good as the original North and South. The story kind of borders on the silly and somehow it looks a lot cheaper than the series from the 80s. Since this box is so inexpensive you can just buy it anyway and skip the third part of the story.

Part 1&2 were very enjoyable, and deserved 5 stars, but part 3 was so bad it took away from the overall story, it should have ended after the first two
