Jane Austen-palooza!

I have spent the past 2 weeks in Jane Austen heaven...before Jane Austen I ventured into "Jane Eyre" and "Wuthering Heights" on You Tube, since then I have watched the SIX hour mini-series of "Pride and Prejudice" from BBC at least SIX times...yes, that was 36 hours of Jane Austen. I watched the whole thing in one sitting the first night. LOL!!!

Since then I have watched "Mansfield Park" twice, "Emma," "Persuasion," "Sense and Sensibility" and "Northanger Abbey." I have also watched a movie called, "Lost in Austen" which is loosely based on "P&P." It is a BBC production also. "Emma" was not a BBC production but I believe the rest of the shows I watched all were from BBC.

I also admit to watching several different versions of "Jane Eyre." That story has me captivated. In addition I have watched "Rebecca" and the 1940 Hollywood treatment of "Pride and Prejudice" with Greer Garson and Sir Laurence Olivier.

I have to admit to being quite captivated by Jane Austen at the ripe old age of 53 and will be getting the books from the library so that I can now read the stories that have captivated me. I realize that the movies will have taken what they want and left the rest from the books but I will be able to enjoy the books for their own sake as they are the original stories.

I have had a great time, now I need to start doing my own writing again and not watch so much on You Tube.

Ciao!
