      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

Peyton Place by Grace Metalious

Recommended Posts

I searched the forum for a topic on Peyton Place but couldn't find one. I did, however, find a lot of posts where people mentioned reading the book :)  I read the book some many years ago, and really enjoyed it! I think I wasn't too impressed by the book in the start, but it got better and better. I could've kept on reading! I'm not sure why I didn't read the subsequent novels then. I've thought about re-reading the first book and then reading the sequels.

 

When I was googling the whole Peyton Place thing, I stumbled upon a related book by Barbara Delinsky, called Looking for Peyton Place. I'm kind of keen on reading this one, as well :D

Any Peyton Place fans? I wonder if the TV series would be great to watch. Although I'm not sure where one might catch it...

I don't know a lot about it I'm afraid. I haven't seen the TV series myself, but my grandmother has mentioned it to me, she liked it a lot I think. I'm not 100% sure if she's read the original book, but I think she has read it and liked it. I haven't read either book, but I have read a different book and a novella by Barbara Delinsky and liked them both.

 

I think my grandmother might have the TV series on DVD. Ah, according to Wikipedia parts 1 and 2 were released in 2009, and parts 3 and 4 in 2018. I think she'll have parts 1 and 2 then.

 

I hope you can find another fan on the forum, that would be nice :).

I very vaguely remember the TV series - in black and white!

Have you ever thought about reading the book? :)

When did it air? My Mum probably watched it. Maybe. I would think! It would be so much fun to watch the show! :smile2:

 

My mojo's been fickle though, so I've not been able to re-read the first novel in the series yet. But I'm hoping to get to it and the sequels this summer! :)

Not until you made this topic, no. But now, maybe :).

think the TV series was on during the 1960s, probably towards the end of the decade.

I've not managed to get into re-reading the book yet but it's still on the horizon! And I have the two sequels from the library.
