Thanks for that information. Unfortunately I find it very difficult to substitute and audio book for reading, at least for any book I wish to retain more than a superficial grasp of. When my eyes are not occupied with reading it is too easy to become distracted and miss much of what I am listening to.

Thank you for that.
The 1952 film is entertaining, but very glossy and at under two hours run time obviously leaves out much that is in the book. I watched the first couple of YouTube clips of the 1997 series last night. I like the gritty realism consistent from a time when bathing was considered unhealthy. At five hours total it should provide pretty good coverage of the novel.
