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.

As a fan of the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice and too of the novel, I have been looking for this book for a while... and I wasn't disappointed. The Making of Pride and Prejudice goes into great detail about how the series was made, who was involved and also gives general information about film making.
Includes delightful interview with Colin Firth, details of filming locations, set designs and costumes which makes you appreciate the series even more. I've never bought a "Making of.." before but this was a joy to read.
If you love the BBC series then it's a must-have.

'The Making of Pride & Prejudice' is full of useful and interesting information about the locations, costumes, fabrics, filming, foods, dancing, actors etc.. etc., from the most recent BBC production; wth a delightful interview with Jennifer Ehle about playing Elizabeth Bennet, and a thoughtful view of Darcy's character from Colin Firth. The book chronicles the process of creating the script through to the first broadcast, and is full of pictures and 'tit-bits' of the trials and tribulations of creating a film without losing the 'magic' of a well-loved story. If you enjoyed the tv series or bought the video, you'll love this book.

A friend lent me her copy and I spent a wonderful afternoon poring over it, then watching the series (again!)- pausing the video all the time so I could read the novel and the Making of P&P to compare effects, notice things that I would have overlooked before, moon over Colin Firth, and enjoy the film from a more informed view. I found Sue Birtwistle's account of the making v. interesting indeed, and insightful. I recommend it to all P&P fans!

I love the BBC production of "Pride and Prejudice" starring Colin Firth and Jennefer Ehle. This book helps it become even more meaningful and fascinating. I have never been through the process of film-making and this book explains everything from pre-production to post production. It is very educational as well as insightful and interesting. There are many beautiful color photographs of the actors and scenes from the film. It has value to someone who has never seen the film because it explains the process of film-making so well. I have watched and rewatched the series and have not tired of it yet. This book helps one appreciate it even more. It has great interviews and anecdotes also. If you love the movie, you'll love this book. I can't seem to get enough of either the book or the movie.

Being an addict of the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice, I thought this "behind the scenes" look might spoil things a bit. How wrong could I be? This fascinating insight into everything from casting, pre-production, costume design, filming and location hunting was so good, I just can't put the book down! Particulary interesting is the various locations used during filming. I now intend to visit as many of these as possible during the summer. I recommend this book to any lover of Pride and Prejudice. It all adds to the pure magic of the story.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a married man in possession of a small amount of spare cash and a wife's birthday coming up must be in want of a book like this...
It makes a great pressie, and is very interesting, and enlightening, and even I enjoyed it!

Being well soaked in all the versions of this novel that are available, and having taken the time to collect all these films on D V D and Blu-Ray this along with the Keira Knightley, Matthew Macfadyen versions, nothing less than magic. This book helps this fantasy world of Jane Austen along in a very pleasing way.
