I first read this as a young teenager (possibly younger), and it is one of the only books I’ve re-read a few times.
I still have my original copy of this with my maiden name written in pencil inside the front cover (see photos below).
Fond memories of this book :-) I loved the TV series at the time too. I tried watching it a few years ago, and it was quite terrible. Oh how we see things differently as we age and technology improves, ha ha :-)
