    My 12 books are so tatty, they re falling to bits, hence buying Kindle version I bought them years ago, after the first series If you need a little help understanding the characters, suggest you buy the first TV series on DVD Angharad Rees IS Demelza tho you do have to ignore the dreadful wigs and corny music Cannot understand casting in the remake and some of the plot must be causing Winston Graham to turn in his grave Not really sure why they remade it, it seems a bit like remaking the Sound of Music I couldn t even watch the first two series, but in the end, had to have my weekly date with Aidan.The knowledge of mining, farming, engineering, history in the period is outstanding The humour makes you laugh aloud in the work canteen The tension makes you nervous even when you ve read the books many, many times Incredible writing I m in love with Robin I mean Ross all over again.

  7. Valerie Cooper Valerie Cooper says:

    Ross Poldark is a wonderful story,the beginning of a terrific saga of twelve great books.Once you have read the first one you want to read .A story of romance, courage,historical fact all interwoven with magical characters totally believable,nothing remotely far fetched.All the characters ,their big houses,their cottages,the mines,all aspects of living in the 18th century,the poverty and the grandeur ,even the illnesses they suffer are so brilliantly described one feels as though you are actually in the story itself.The much loved Ross and Demelza will find their place in literary history for centuries to come.

    I loved the new series and had never seen the original series or even heard of Winston Graham What a joy to discover that his books are even better than the television series Winston is a superb writer easy to read but has such depth of wisdom, and brings to life Cornwall in the 1700s and all the wonderful characters of his stories He is especially good at understanding the fundamental differences between male and female, injecting humour along with pathos, and bringing enlightenment even to the modern reader about how we are to relate to each other I am now collecting the entire set of books and each one is just as wonderful to read, especially if you love to escape the modern world and retreat to glorious Cornwall, as I do These publications are well produced, the print is just right not too small and lovely chunky reads.

    This is a wonderful book, started watching the bbc version and was so hooked, I just had to buy the books to try and see if the origional story was anywhere near the tv version even if it eas just to see what could be happening next What I found was, a very entertaining, and surprisingly funny book, which I wasnt expecting Just lovely Am now working my way through the second book The thing I like about books, over films, is that you get to know the why s and the unexplained feelings or events that transpire inbetween the exciting cliffhanger heartwarming stuff Excellent book, worth buying, dont hesitate
