Pride and Prejudice Contest Winners!!!

Just an update on two more suggestions for actors to play Darcy and Elizabeth:
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison when they're older

and Audrey Hepburn with Richard Harris when they were younger






***
Well, all good things must come to an end (sniff).

I've very much enjoyed our month-long exploration of Pride and Prejudice, and was delighted that we had so many diverse opinions. I got to know some of you pretty well after a month of reading your posts (the extra long posts, complaints about Friday mornings, NN (who shall remain unnamed) who liked to come in right at the end) and I have to say it was a pleasure. Amazingly, some of you posted almost every time. Big applause to you!

For those of you who added your opinions later when you discovered the blog or found the time, glad to see you here! For newcomers, there's always time to go back and voice your thoughts. The questions are in the archives, and you can add to them any time if the mood strikes you. Alas, no prize as a reward, however.


Now for the moment you've been waiting for. I wish I could send you all copies of the book, especially those who faithfully came in almost daily to answer questions.

I need to thank Danielle Jackson at Sourcebooks for very generously agreeing to support this contest. I also need to thank you all for making it really fun and worthwhile.

I did the draw the old fashioned way. I put the name for each seperate entry on a piece of paper, and put it in a box. I then gave the box to my daughter who had a lot of fun pulling out the names and reading them out to me.

The four runners up receive a copy of The Other Mr Darcy:

The winners are:

Elizabeth B

The lucky Grand Prize Winner receives a copy of The Other Mr Darcy plus a box of chocolates:

  4. It was a lot of fun! I wish I'd had more time to stop by and participate and that I'd been able to go back and read some more of the earlier comments, hopefully by the end of November I'll have finished going back and reading them all! There were some great comments (and questions) that really made me think about the book and movies from different angles, thank you!

    Also, it was great to make that comment about Northanger Abbey and have people realize what I meant with it.
