I'm surprisingly excited about this. I must admit that I absolutely detested the book when I first read it, but after reading it for school and actually delving into its complexities it grew on me a little. I hope this one is good, but wasn't there a miniseries that came out just a few years ago or am I underestimating just how long ago it was?

@LitLover - Maybe you're thinking of the 1999 version with Ioan Gruffudd? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0167187/
