Brilliant! The acting was superb and each of the women were uniquely complex and intriguing. I read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was excited when I heard the book was coming to life in an HBO series. These ladies really embraced the characters in the book and made for a real compelling series. I believe mothers and women will enjoy watching this mini series. There are plenty of relatable themes and the show is so suspenseful. I hated for it to end as these characters were wonderful!

Very well done. I was worried the star power would outshine the story but that wasn't the case at all. It was easy to see them as the women in the book and the music was excellent as well. I just finished the series today and I will definitely be rewatching it.
