Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen (Tuesday Intros & Teaser Tuesday)

Don't expect to see any sort of ramble or review about this one. Quite simply, it's one of my all-time favorite books and I've read it at least once every few years for over 25 years. I'm about half way through the latest re-read and it's still just as precious as ever. Granted, I'm still waiting for someone to slit dear Miss Bingley's throat. Not even Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has given me the pleasure!
And, in case you were wondering, the 1995 BBC mini-series is far superior to the 2005 film, but both are worth watching. 1995, after all, has Colin Firth & 2005 has the film debut of Carey Mulligan. We'll ooh and aah about her later on in The Year of Austen since she also played Isabella in ITV's Northanger Abbey ...

"First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" is from the first paragraph or two of a book being read now (or in the future) and is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. "Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.

  1. I adore this book! Enjoy! I like the Colin Firth version best too -- not just because of Firth but because it has the other Bingley sister and the slug of a brother-in-law. But, yeah, Colin Firth.
