Very good adaptation of the novel tough it lacks some of the most magical aspects of the novel.

Awesome show, awesome cast, awesome story. One of the best new series of 2015.

The first episode was interesting but I didn't find it completely engaging despite some excellent turns from the lead actors. The second episode was much more engaging and quite fun too so I'm eagerly awaiting further episodes.
