    I couldn't get into it either, gave up after a couple of episodes and used to read while the wife and daughter watched it.

    Yep, gave up with the kids after the first episode. Poor.

    Not seen the TV series but I read the first book to my daughter when she was younger and and wasn't really taken with it - didn't complete the trilogy - and the film of one of the books is a shocker. The books have done well though so must appeal to some.

    The "audio book" of it's quite good tho

    I say audiobook because it's done as a play really...

    I thought the book was good, very good in fact.
