The first of a trilogy, which I found much more like a TV-Script than a serious novel: a plethora of characters, most superfically defined, and few that I could care for, or even remember on completing the book. Fortunately the succeeding volume is substantially better, making it worth the chore of homework here.

Though much in the stories is predictable, the book's real strength is in the quality of its prose. Raphael is a master of both brio and wit. If you admire and delight in such qualities, you'll love this book as I do.

I wish, like another reviewer, that the TV miniseries were available on DVD. It introduced Tom Conte to American audiences, and I think he's never been better in any of his subsequent work on film and the tube.

Raphael has produced an enormous amount of excellent fiction, non-fiction, and TV and film writing. Best known among the latter are "Two for the Road," "Darling," and "Eyes Wide Shut."

I have this paperback book somewhere on a shelf or in a pile. I remember that the miniseries was excellent and I was anxious to read the original. I found the book and read for a while but quickly noticed there did not seem to be anything that was not already in the miniseries. After a little more investigation I found that the book was adapted from the miniseries rather than the other way around.

Now that it is hard (impossible?) to get the miniseries it might be worth reading this novelization but I wish they would issue it on DVD.

The book is very good but the miniseries was wonderful. Tom Conti is one of my very favorite actors but very few of his TV appearances have been released on DVD and this is one of the best. What can we do to get this released?
