I read widely from many genres. Perhaps this blog will feature fewer ratings and reviews, but I certainly intend to write about my reading life - it's the subject I most find myself wanting to talk about.

Notes on Adaptation: Death Comes to Pemberley

Death Comes to Pemberley - P.D. James

P.D. James took liberties with Jane Austen. The makers of the Masterpiece adaptation of "Death Comes to Pemberley," which aired recently on PBS, took liberties with James' novel. 


It's all good. Neither is atrocious; neither is canon. They are little homages that as a Janeite I can embrace or dismiss.
