    I remembered reading the book many years ago. However I don't remember the ending, and I don't want to give it away. I believe this movie (rather, a TV show), was rather well done, and I enjoyed it. I believe they took the liberty of changing the story somewhat, but I am glad I was able to add this to my Blu-ray collection.

    Loved this show. Blue ray version is better than broadcast for sure. Worth it.

    Since I read this book as a young boy I have hoped that someone would make a movie that would due justice to this classic. I loved how well this miniseries captured the spirit of this thought-provoking tale.

    I seen this movie on television. It was very interesting. It could have been shorter. It is just for those who wonder what the end of the world would be like.

    Book review, then viewing parts of this program on a mini special, I decided to invest in the DVD in order to see the entire series. This movie had been attempted in the past, but did not quite get off the ground. With today's technology and some thought by the director as to how to portray the lead character, I think the timing was on point. How would one prepare for Eternity?

    A Lot of the racial and political views were omitted from the story and they diluted aspects of the book I thought were quite dramatic!

    Well acted and true to the book. If you did not read the book, all the better. You won't see the ending coming.
