I am pretty new to Jane Austen myself. I only start reading Pride and Prejudice because the reading club I joined was so into Jane Austen. I didn't want to feel left out. I like Pride and Prejudice. I might have fallen in love with Mr. Darcy, thought I would personally date him. He's aloof and bordering on rude.
On the other hand, Matthew McFaden and Colin Firth makes for wonderful Mr. Darcy. So, back to this book-turned-into-movie, I like the movie much better. It's enjoyable and fun.
Isn't it better to quit while we're ahead?
