Today is the last day of winter and therefore the deadline for the Pride and Prejudice Challenge! So here's how it went for me.
First off I watched the Keira Knightley movie.
As I've said before, I struggle with the classics and always do better when I know what is going on. Otherwise I find myself fighting the language to understand the story.
I didn't mind this movie - it was OK, but then I watched the BBC production.
Next to finished was the book.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this. I have started to understand the fuss made about Jane Austen. Dare I say, I can even imagine re-reading this...voluntarily. I love the way Austen managed to write strong female characters in a time when women were not meant to be strong and independent minded. I also love how she had male characters who found that trait to be attractive.
And finally, the modern day adaptation, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.
So there you have it, my Pride and Prejudice wrap up. Did you take part? What did you watch/ read? Have you done a wrap up post? I'd love to know what others have done, so please post a link below!
