    ...and enjoyed it tremendously.

    I'd read the book by Susannah Clarke previously as well, as well as the collection The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories.

    I'm not sure if anyone here has read The King of Elfland's Daughter by Lord Dunsany (or others of his works), or even Spenser's The Faerie Queene or the various poetical works of Samuel Coleridge, but I highly recommend at least the Dunsany work to those who are interested.

    Regarding the series, I think they made very good decisions in terms of what to trim from the book in order to make something manageable which still gives most of the relevant content.

    Has anyone else read the book or seen the series?
