200th Anniversary of Pride and Prejudice
So I reread it by listening to it. I think, in times of stress, I do wish to reach back to a familiar fictional worlds. There's research on it,though my preferred medium is books. There are a few that I keep coming back to again and again; Pride and Prejudice is one of them. It is one that has grown on me as an adult. I know I read it in my teens and may have read it again in college. But it seems the last 12 years or so i've read and reread this book. For whatever reason, I haven't been attracted to any of the sequels or rewritings. i guess the original, in all it's perfection, is the one for me.
