What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

a great adaption of a great novel.
especially jonathan strange is played amazingly. he seems really strange at the beginning and rather annoying but he grows on you. he ended up being my favourite.
some things were changed from the book but that is a given with any form of screen adaption.
also great minor characters.
the whole cast was amazing. I loved all of it.
a gripping fantasy story that is fitted so well into a historic setting it might just be true.
