Pride and Prejudice turns 200!

Monday, 28 January 2013 will be the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, which just happens to be my favorite novel of all time. 

Alyssa Goodnight, author of Austensibly Ordinary, is co-hosting a blog hop to celebrate, and I'm playing along.

Drop by Stuff and Nonsense on Monday to see what I'll be doing, and join my little party.


  1. P&P is my favorite book as well! I could happily read it half a dozen times a year and not be bored. I also love the Colin Firth TV version that was on PBS a few years ago (the six-hour series). I thought the casting was superb. I am not a fan of the Keira Knightley version, however.

    I didn't realize it was the 200th anniversary of the novel this year, so I'm glad you told me.

  2. Hi, Jan.
    I loved the Colin Firth version, too, but I think I may have liked the earlier version with Jennifer Ehle as Lizzie just a bit more.
    I was not impressed by the movie with Keira Knightly, especially as the messed with the ending.

    It's kinda fun.

  3. Marlyn,
    The Colin Firth version and the Jennifer Ehle version are one and the same. Perfect casting of every single character! I don't think a better film version of P&P could ever be made.

  4. Colin Firth embodied Darcy...but I must admit I enjoy Matthew MacFaydens version...


Thank you so much for dropping by and reading my blog. I do read all comments, and try to respond.
