As I've said before, I loved the book, and I think that a TV show will make it easier to develop some of the nuances of plot and characterization. I'm very interested to see who gets cast in some of the major roles; Wikipedia lists some of the main cast, but it's not clear if the people listed are all of the main actors. Barbie, Big Jim, Rusty, and Julia are all missing from the list--it would be a very different show without them. It makes me a little nervous, to be honest.
Don't mess this up, CBS!
