Much darker than the 60s drama. I wish I had read/listened to the book before I bought the drama series. The actors from the drama filled my imagination as oppose to embarking upon the story as a blank canvas. I found myself completely engrossed in this novel and the extreme stances that the characters took made more sense after absorbing the book as oppose to watching the drama. The TV series was watered down to suite the audience and the time. This book strongly recommended!
