I haven’t actually read the book, but only because I’ve seen the movie. It’s Colin Firth *sigh*. Why is he so sexy? I could watch all kinds of movie with him in it. I prefer watching him as Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. I like him as Darcy in Bridget Jones Diary. Is there anyone left on this planet that haven’t read this book? If you haven’t, stay tuned, I’ll post my copy here for giveaway soon.
I love this movie. If this book is even half as colorful as the movie, then it will be a treat reading it. It’s not that I won’t read it, I’m listening to it in audio. BTW, my friend, Vicki, from Germany sent me an address book with this cover. It’s just so beautiful, I’m not sure I want to write in it because then it’s won’t be perfect anymore, right? You can look at the picture here. Inside the address book are tidbits about Vermeer. I really like that.
I just finished listening to Midwives. What a compelling story. I noticed that I have listened to and enjoyed stories narrated by children, or mainly in a teenager’s voice. Alice Siebold’s Lovely Bones, Jennifer Donnelly’s A Nothern Light come to mind. Do you know of others? I find that I like these stories.
