Attention: Jane Austen fans!

I just found out some news concerning Jane and some of her novels. There’s a new movie coming out in August, entitled “Becoming Jane” and it stars Anne Hathaway. It supposedly tells the story of Jane’s own star-crossed first love.

Masterpiece Theatre plans to have a Jane Austen festival in November with new adaptations of Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park and Persuasion. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

World Magazine did a review this week of some recent “sequels” to Pride and Prejudice. Some got ok reviews; some not. I say “why bother?” You cannot mess with perfection!!

What say you?
