3 stars – I enjoyed it

This series is one that I have always known about yet never read. I have watched the movie and the first season of the Netflix show but never read them. I was surprised at how well the show did with recreating this series. I was expecting a lot of differences but it stays pretty true to the story. Tim Curry does an amazing job narrating the story and I think he is the perfect narrator for this depressing tale. The only thing I didn’t love about this was all the definition for words, but it makes sense for the reading level. 

Overall, this was as unfortunate as I thought it would be and probably should have picked a different time to read it. I don’t really need any more depressing things in my life right now but at the same time I want to continue listening to the series. We will see if I actually continue the series.
