5.0 out of 5 stars A 'MUST- HAVE' FOR PRIDE AND PREJUDICE FANS!, 13 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Making of Pride and Prejudice (BBC) (Paperback)
Never having seen the BBC miniseries, I took a chance in buying the P&P DVD a fortnight ago. Since then, I've watched it hundreds of times and just couldn't get enough of it. I wanted to know more about it, so I brought this book, and I must say, it hasing disappointed me at all. It answers vitrually every question you may ever ask on the series, it really fills in the gaps. It not only talks of the obvious things, like the filming, script, casting and costumes, but also details like location hunting, dance routines, music and sound effects. There is also a chapter devoted to an interview with Colin Firth (Mr Darcy). Reading it made me appreciate in fact how challenging it was to act out the part of Mr Darcy in a decent way. The book includes many beautiful colour photos, and each page is thoughtfully laid out. Ideally though, it would be nice to have an interview with Jennifer Ehle as well as Colin Firth, I mean, she IS Elizabeth Bennet, the main character. She is very talented, and I'd like to know why they chose her to play Elizabeth and not someone else. Nevertheless,trust me, you will see the series in a brand new light after reading this, all that work, thought, people and time devoted to make a 6-episoded miniseries. You will be very grateful and enjoy the series enough more. This is the perfect companion book to complement the series, and a definate 'must- have' for every P&P fan, especially if you own the DVD or the video.
