Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice | Austen
Beloved by millions the world over, Pride and Prejudice is delightfully transformed in this bold new manga adaptation. In a remote English village, Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, a not-so-well-to do country squire and his wife, must marry off their five vivacious daughters. At the very center of this all-consuming enterprise are the headstrong second daughter, Elizabeth and her aristocratic suitor Mister Darcy, two lovers in whom pride and prejudice must be overcome before love can bring the story to its magnificent conclusion. All of the joy, heartache, and romance of Jane Austen's original, Pride & Prejudice is perfectly illuminated by the sumptuous art of manga-ka Po Tse, and faithfully adapted by Stacy E. King.

1- Pride & Prejudice
2- 14
3- Firth- I haven't seen the older versions (bet Olivier was fab tho!) and Macfadyen just didn't work for me
4- Anne Elliott
5- Knightley. Or Brandon. Or Wentworth. #cointoss
6: the Crawford siblings in Mansfield Park
7- Bride & Prejudice- it did a great job of updating the story while keeping recognizable characters. Plus the costumes! The dancing! The locations! It's wonderful.

CarolynM Loved Bride and Prejudice❤️ 1mo
bookandbedandtea @CarolynM The Collins character in this movie- Mr Kohli- is the best version of the character I've seen. Now I'm in the mood to watch it again! 1mo

1. Northanger Abbey
2. 13 - I didn't like it so I didn't read P&P until I was about 25
3. Olivier - Firth doesn't do it for me and I always think Macfadyen is a bit wet (he's perfectly cast in Succession)
4. Elizabeth Bennett
5. Mr Knightley
6. Lady Catherine de Bourgh
7. Toss up between the 90's TV P&P (it kept all the jokes) the 1996 film of Emma (Jeremy Northam as Knightley - see above) and Clueless (Paul Rudd and new jokes)

Ruthiella Ooh Lady Catherine! I love it when Elizabeth gives her a piece of her mind!😀 1mo

Currently reading Pride and Prejudice because it's my mother's favorite book. She told me it reflects how she wished she wanted her life to be. I had a thought about where she is now and how would she convey in a book title, she answered "what happens when life lives you"

It appears that I‘ve caught my grandson‘s stomach virus 😢 Especially not good, since I‘m scheduled for surgery tomorrow. Hubby went to church, and I was planning to read, but couldn‘t concentrate. So I put on the movie equivalent of comfort food (probably shouldn‘t have used that word; my stomach just turned over.) Hopefully it will distract me from how rotten I feel and what bad timing I have.

#QuotsyApr19 Day 16: when love is lost because of vanity - epic #folly indeed. Rereading this classic with my 17 year old girl, a few chapters every night. We both find Mr Darcy loathsome.

scripturient I‘ve never understood why anyone would find Darcy attractive. He is such a self-centred jerk and pretty much the opposite of what women should yearn for in a relationship. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
GatheringBooks @scripturient precisely - talk about an epic-fail marriage proposal. i hate myself because i love you even though you are poor and i cannot abide your family, but despite all this i deserve a blue ribbon for even wanting to marry you. umm... ok. 4mo

Ok I am just a bit late to the party on this one but better late than never, right? I am sure I picked this up at some point in high school but probably wrote it off as an “old fashioned romance” without giving it a chance. Fortunately, I finally did give it another chance and realized it is so much more than that. I‘m slowly getting through my list of Classics that I know I “should” read and this is at the top of the list. #aty2019

My apologies I haven't been posting lately. Life has kept me busy and my reading has slowed this month for some reason. I'm busy working on shop inventory while listening to Kate Beckinsale reading P&P. I had hoped to finish 2 books for next weeks Austen Book Club, but I don't think I will be able to. This is a great version of the audiobook by the way! #janeausten

Hello! I‘m new to the community and just wanted to introduce myself. I was born in China and now reside in Dallas, but I haven‘t had a chance to explore the city as much as I‘d like in the four years I‘ve lived here. I love Jane Austen, wine, history, art, classical music, and collecting vintage copies of publications. (: I don‘t have social media! But it‘s lovely to meet such nice people here already.

“I should infinitely prefer a book.” Mary Bennet is a girl after my own heart.

I know you should never judge a book by its cover, but I love the variety of modern designs on Jane Austen‘s classics that keep them relevant and fresh.

1) I don't read too many romances.
2) 02/15 because I'm single and all the Valentine's candy goes on sale on the 15th 😂

My #yearinreview for 2018 🎉

post image

A wonderful way to start 2019. Austen‘s fierce wit and razor sharp commentary pour off the page. When people talk about the Darcy/Lizzie romance they seem to forget that while he changes, Elizabeth does as well. They are improved by each other. That is the point.

“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun."

LaLecture I still haven‘t watched the whole BBC series, I think. But I‘m pretty sure I‘m gonna stick with the version I knew first, aka Keira 😅. Idk, I like Colin Firth but he is just no Darcy for me. I feel like it‘s a question of what you‘re used to and I watched the film so many times that I‘m totally used to that version. Maybe it‘s also bc I know CF from so many other movies and MM from... 1, I think 😂. Still planning to watch the BBC series though! (edited) 8mo
