I loved the film and found the history and character of Georgiana fascinating. She was a complicated and complex person in a very complex and complicated world, where one did not marry for love but for family enhancement and improvement.
Unfortunately, I did not find the novel quite as fascinating and maybe I shouldn’t have seen the film first? Films of novels are never quite true to the story and sometimes the history changes for convenience. I probably expected too much from the novel.
It is good but not good enough to keep me enthralled and not unputdownable.
