USER REVIEWS

Powerful production but rather incoherent and over-long in parts. Use of voice-over and multiple layers of speech from the cast make for a somewhat confusing effect which newcomers to the book might find irritating. Occasionally gratuitous and over use of sex and violence drag out scenes well beyond the time needed to make the point but Lily Knight (Julia) is an attractive and effective foil to Winston (Jack Cosgrove) and her earthy sexiness is a very convincing rationale for Winston risking all for her love.
