I tend to read books before I watch a film or a TV series based on a book, but I enjoyed the TV series a lot and was interested to see and compare as invariably I have found books so much better than the films or TV series, George Gently excepted.
I was pretty surprised how close the TV series was to the book and how well the casting director must have done to fill the roles
So an enjoyable book and an enjoyable film if you like an easy reading/watching bit of nostalgia about country life and a family of real characters (in a fictional sense) in southern england in the 50's. It's not really any genre, not action, not adventure, not really romance to any degree, ot a who dunnit, just an enjoyable tale
