    You forgot the Mormon video adaptation, Pride & Prejude: A Latter-Day Comedy (2003). I’ve seriously watch every adaptation of this story out there, hahaha.

    I love this book and hope I’m not to late to join! :D

    Alyria, how on Earth did you not see the 2005 P&P until just now??

    Glad you liked it. It's a superbly done adaptation; one for the ages.

    The UK cut of 2005 P&P ends with Mr Bennett giving his approval for the marriage and his comment about any suitors for Mary or Kitty are welcome

    The US ending is included as a bonus feature on the dvd, so I didn't realise there was the Mrs Darcy thing for ages.

    There was a reason for the US version to have a different ending but I can't remember why and I'm too tired to google :lol

    Finished Mansfield Park on audiobook a few weeks ago! That's it for the 6 main books!

    It's been a long journey ... thread started 2.5 years ago :eek

    I guess I have to do Sanditon and the Watsons and Lady Susan because I've never read those yet.
