SHAME ON YOU!, 8 Nov 2009
A betrayal of the original book.
A reduction to a particularily cretinous American soap-opera level of a charming classic.
Alexander McCall Smith (whom, until seeing this, I greatly admired - and many of whose books i have read with pleasure) should be ashamed of selling the rights to these TV pimps (or letting himself be cheated and then prostituted by them,) Amazon should be ashamed to sell it, and the perpetrators should be thouroughly ashamed of themselves. They won't be... thay will have made money... which is all that matters ...
Quite the worse thing I have seen for years, even without taking into account the betrayal of the original..
DO NOT BUY IT!
UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
