Welcome to the Books to Movies Giveaway Hop hosted by Bookhounds!
I really wracked my brains to try to think of a recent book/movie pairing that I love and can recommend, but I couldn't. So I'm turning back to the classics, and who is more classic than Jane Austen? Most people are familiar with Pride and Prejudice and have seen the various screen versions, but not as many are familiar with her last novel, Persuasion.
Jane Austen has been my favorite author since I was in my teens. I've read all her novels at least once (except Emma - I have it, I just haven't read it) and I'm sure I've seen every screen version of all of them. Second only to P & P, my favorite is Persuasion. It's a gentle story with now familiar themes: a quiet young woman with a strong sense of familial duty gives up her own wishes, longings, and dreams because of the opinions and for the convenience of others. But of course that's not the end of the story!
I'm giving away two film versions of Persuasion, plus a paperback of the novel! The novel edition I've chosen is new and has a GORGEOUS cover. It also has illustrations by the same artist. I'm going to have to get my own copy of this!
I'm including two screen versions as, while I prefer the newer (2007) version, the older (1995) version is, I think, a little truer to the text. Both are British adaptations and are beautifully acted and filmed.
I'd love to hear what your favorite Austen book, movie, or spinoff is. Good luck!
