I read the book and loved it, I was hopeful for this adaptation to live up to the book... But no such luck. They left out one of the major characters entirely, one who actually narrates a 1/4 of the book, as well as many other important characters and events from the book. They didn't do justice to any of the characters' back-stories, leaving the viewers without any real understanding of the characters and their motivations. The book was a beautiful piece of historical fiction that told the story of strong, devout Jewish women and the things they did to survive the times and the conditions and the Roman siege. This miniseries was just a historically inaccurate soap opera.
