1995: BEST-14, WORST-1

2007: BEST-2, WORST-9

Yay, my favorite, 1995, wins by a landslide. The other two are pretty closely tied behind. I didn’t include Mr. Shepherd, Mrs. Rooke, or Charles Hayter, because their roles are so small even in the book. And I actually liked the actor for Harville in 2007, but I didn’t like what they did with his character (got rid of his wife and made him privy to all Wentworth’s secrets).

So all my Jane Austen reviews are over! Until a new version comes out! Given how everyone likes to adapt the same books over and over, it probably won’t be long. I know there is the Modern P&P coming out (and I’ve still never seen the Mormon version) but I’m not sure if I’m interested in that because it’s a low budget production. We’ll see. Next I’m probably going to move onto the Brontes- 7 books by 3 authors, yet the great majority of the adaptations are only of two of those. You know which ones I’m talking about- Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights of course. I’m a fan of all the Brontes but my true love is Jane Austen so I’m a little sad that I’m done with those!
