Teresa (teresa_rust) I loved The 39 Steps. I read that while living in Central Asia about 16 years ago. My husband and son also really enjoyed it. Now, you need to watch the movie adaptations. :)

I'll keep an eye out for one or any of the versions which must appear every so often on the small box.

I think the Hitchcock one is the most famous, but I'd watch any of them TBH.

Teresa (teresa_rust) The 2008 BBC version was very nicely done with Rupert Penry-Jones. :)
