I'm reading the potboiler (complete free text) available for download at :
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/8954
It promises to be a quick read, much like novels for the beach. It's like a Danielle Steele/Dick Francis blend for the Victorian age.

Narayan is going to watch the made-for-TV movie.

I had read the book a couple of years ago but did not delve into its background too deeply. Our book club read it last month. That is when I found out much more about M.E. Braddon. I would not have written about this book here, had I not learnt of the author's colorful life.

As bad as any Hindi soap-opera/B-movie of my day. A standard British TV offering with good production values and third tier actors, with not a single character one could warm to.

Sorry Narayan, you had to endure a terrible film. I warned you that this one's a potboiler. I was inclined to write about the book because of the author's unorthodox life.

You should have watched 'Woh Kaun Thi' instead, Narayan. At least the songs would have been better;)
