Day 19 ~ Favorite book turned into a movie

 

This would be more of a favorite movie turned into a book, since I saw the movie, fell in love with it and then read the book.

 

Are you familiar with Richard Armitage? I wasn't, but after watching the movie I wanted to be. He's the reason I watched the movie a second time.

 

But the third time was for the brilliant story. It's got angst, history, death, a mill strike, the class struggle between the industrial North and the agrarian South of England. And best of all, it's got a tension-filled relationship between the two main characters that is reminiscent of Pride and Prejudice. What's not to love?
