Reply To: On the TV portrayal of the "Strong Woman"


I think this is a brilliant post and I will have to re-read to make sure it all sinks in…late in the day for me. I just started a thread on the male perspective but what I really found interesting from my husband was not the male perspective necessarily but the perspective of a viewer who had not read the books. I too am experiencing the story again from what I know to be in the books and now on the screen. Sometimes show Claire annoys me during the very times that book Claire is my hero…I am going to look for some times when show Claire triumphs over book Claire. CB is fantastic. Hearing my husband’s comments adds sort of a third dimension for me. Very cool.
