I love that book and Emma Thompson plays in the movie version of the novel.

I love Alan Rickman in the film version. He transends the ages with that voice! Whats cool is you get to see him with sandy blonde hair and green eyes instead of the greasy black hair and dark eyes. LOL! He is without a doubt my favorite actor. Great book too, by the way!

TOTALLY agree with kerri…I just saw this movie a few weeks ago, loved it. And he gets the girl in the end!!

Again, in agreement on Mr Rickman. I just finished the movie, again, and he is a fine actor. We just all need to remember that ’Jo’s Book Nook’ is about the BOOK, not the movie! LOL, It’s a great read, and I can’t wait! :D

I love the Thompson-Rickman interpretation of it, but when I started reading the actual book it struck me with boredom. Great novels in it’s time, but it’s a style and theme that is completely outdated.and once you read one Jane Austen y’ve read them all:
Girl needs man,
girl rejects mr.Right,
girl fancies mr.Wrong,
girl accepts mr.Right,
end of story

Confederate Lady, you’re right discussion is mainly about the book but we also discuss movie interpretations and comparisons with the books, we have quizzes, discussions about Jane Austen’s influence on JKR’s work, etc so hopefully we have something for everyone.

Guess That Book

"You were out of bed on the night my office was broken into!" Snape hissed. "I know it, Potter! Now, Mad-Eye Moody might have joined your fan club, but I will not tolerate your behavior! One more nighttime stroll into my office, Potter, and you will pay!"
