What’s up, March? You sure did come around quickly. I’m looking ahead at all the books, movies and Melbourne events that are coming up in March. I’m also setting some monthly goals (eek!) in an attempt to make the most out of every day. I figure if I write it down here that will make me somewhat accountable and I will (hopefully) achieve some of my goals. Check it out below and let me know what you think in the comments 🙂
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a book like Pride and Prejudice must be in want of an adaptation! It was written over 200 years ago but the adaptations aren’t dying down because it’s JST (just so timeless). There are classic versions like the BBC miniseries and the “Keira Knightley one” and then there are looser adaptations like Bride & Prejudice and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Consider yourself a P&P fan? How many of these 12 adaptations have you seen?
Darcy Vs. Thornton – it’s the ultimate showdown between Fitzwilliam Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and John Thornton from Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South.
Although there are different versions of each character, this showdown is specific to Colin Firth’s Mr Darcy from the 1995 BBC mini series of Pride and Prejudice and Richard Armitage’s Mr Thornton from the 2004 BBC mini series of North & South.
