I watched the first episode of the television series and enjoyed it. The second and third episodes, not so much. BUT I really liked the idea of the story and purchased the book to read instead. I much prefer the characters in the novel to the characters in the series, and I quite enjoyed reading this story. It is a different look at the future, with the concept not just of animals becoming the top of the food chain, but of how the human race is effecting the environment of Earth. A good story!
