About a week ago I saw the move Pride & Prejudice (2005) for the first time.
And I just fell in love with it.
Watching the movie made me wish I'd live in the 19th century and that says a lot - I've always loved living in today's world with all the technology (and nail polishes), but this really made me want to go back in time.
I loved all the actors and the scenery was so beautiful!
The next day I searched out the Pride & Prejudice book that I knew we had.
It was even better.
As always, the book was much more detailed than the movie. I love reading books, especially good ones and this was definitely one of them.
Even though I knew how it'll end, I couldn't put it down.
This is my copy of the book. It's in Estonian and it was published in 1985.
Interesting fact - the book is 7 years older than me.
And of course after I finished the book, I had to watch the BBC Pride & Prejudice TV series starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.
Guess what? It was also amazing!
It surprised me how much it followed the book. Almost every single conversation was there. I really love those kind of movies and TV series. Plus I'm a huge fan of Colin Firth.
I just don't have enough good things to say about this series.
It's a must-watch.
I get obsessed/ excited really quickly when I see or read something good, so it was no surprised that the past week the only thing I read and watched was Pride & Prejudice.
I can't obsess enough how much I loved Mr. Darcy and how nice Elizabeth was. Or how much I disliked her mother and Mr.Collin's attitude.
I could go on for days!
I haven't had this hyper-fangirl phase for a long time about anything. I seriously wanted to go back in time and live in the 19th century.
Preferably in Pemberly.
With Mr. Darcy.
And as a birthday gift to myself, I went to the store and got this huge book.
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen: which include
Sense and Sensibility
Pride and Prejudice
This Christmas is going to be filled with amazing literature.
This post is so all over the place, but like I said before, I'm going through the fangirl-phase.
And for those who actually read all this praise about P&P - on Saturday, there will be a manicure post, inspired by one and only P&P.Pin It Now!
