I don't see any evidence that Carlyle's novel has ever become a film. It would make an interesting indie experiment, at least in Britain. Let the BBC, Film 4 and the UK Lottery have a stab at it.
I got the Kindle download from Amazon to go. It just needed to be fully charged back up before it would work. The Kindle version doesn;t show the three inner "books", somewhat corresponding to various layers of narration by the Editor.

Mencius Goldbug writes about Thomas Carlye and "reactionaries" here in 2009. Suddenly this matters, when considering authoritarianism and Donald Trump.
