Everything Austen Challenge Task 1

Completed 1 of 6 tasks – watched 1981 mini series Sense and Sensibility. It was a bit clunky in parts (like they’d forgotten their lines) and I really didn’t like Tracey Childs playing Marianne (too haughty) but the story is still wonderful. This version unlike the movie with Emma Thompson (which I love) ends a little more like the novel. Jane Austen’s endings can be a bit abrupt but Sense and Sensibility wraps up nicely. I loved the idea of Colonel Brandon and Edward being at the cottage at the same time at the end – the women surrounded by men that love them was satisfying. This version ends a little more like that.

Now on to task 2 – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – should be a hoot.
