Death Comes to Pemberley
by P.D. James
~ MY REVIEW ~
I actually really enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to!
For those of you who have watched the mini-series… the book is better. Bet you didn’t see that coming, did you? 😛 But it’s true. There are things in the book that are different from the series, of course, and as much as I enjoyed the series I really did like the book better.
I found the author’s take on the characters from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice quite interesting. And I liked that they weren’t all that different from the original characters– many times the changes were even explained by experiences, circumstances, and such.
I also really liked the narrator, Rosalyn Landor. I thought she did a good job on this book; I enjoyed listening to her.
One last thing that I think I need to mention is this: I don’t remember there being any bad language at all in this book. And no inappropriate scenes either.
Please, someone, correct me if I’m wrong on this! My copy from the library has already expired so I can’t go back now to see if I had marked any places. But I really don’t remember anything bad…..
