You really should read P&P - it's extremely witty.
I agree that it's witty and I was surprised by that given the century it was written (well, I used to think that way, I don't anymore ).
That is a great book and I wish it will still be read for years and years!

Sorry, I'm afraid I don't. I'd be interested in it myself.
Hmm. Thanks for looking. I couldn't find anything myself after a not very thorough search.

Here's a page describing the event; but so far, the 'Readathon' links, link directly to this page. I'm assuming those links will go active sometime before the reading.

I have enjoyed the movie versions of P&P as well.

I would recommend them all as most are very well done and I can't sort them out, off the top of my head right now.

Only if they allow for later on-demand listening. Otherwise, it's a no go.

Most of Austen's books are witty. That's one of the great features of her writing. P&P is my second favorite Austen novel (behind Persuasion).

My personal favorite is the '95 BBC version. I just adore it! The 1980 BBC version is good too. It's probably closer to the book than other versions. However, some fans consider it a little stilted. I think the worse one is the 2005 version with Keira Knightly. So many Austen fan consider that movie an abomination. The cinematography is wonderful but the film honestly has more of a Bronte feel than an Austen feel.

Yes, the 6-part series. I agree. Superb. Of course you can do an awful lot more in a 6h series than a 90-minute film. P&P is not an easy novel to do justice to in a visual medium, because so much of the book is Elizabeth's feelings about things, rather than visual action.

And, of course, the equally appalling Elizabeth.
That, of course, is the major point of the book - everybody suffers from "P&P" (except the soppy Jane and her soppy bloke), especially when they think they don't.
It is a very subtle book, constructed like a set of Chinese boxes.
JA was definitely a "oncer" though; the rest of her stuff just reads like a boring version of Georgette Heyer.
