For Fellow ‘P & P’ Fans

I stumbled on this today while looking for something on our favorite Austen novel. I don’t think I can let the day pass without sharing it. ๐Ÿ™‚

jen sorensen - pride and prejudice

That snippet is charming enough to tempt you, I’m sure, soย click here or on the image for the full illustration by cartoonist Jen Sorensen. (via npr.org)

  1. Tita, this is fabulous. I so enjoyed it. I really liked the caricature of Mr Bennet and Mrs Bennet – how appropriate is that :-)Thank you so much for adding my blog post in there.

  2. They should give stuff like this to kids that are not able to read the real book… At least they will know what Jane Austin wrote

    • The first time I read Pride and Prejudice, it was in a photo novella (sort of like comics but using either film stills or photos of actors in costume). The form did make the story accessible to us kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I do love cartoon/magna illustrations of books. It is one way to introduce reluctant readers – or those who just plain adore illustrated books with fewer words – to a book. Thank you for sharing, Tita.

    • Oh, I agree. ‘Pride and Prejudice’ for instance was not required reading in my school and I probably wouldn’t have picked it up later if I hadn’t read it in ‘photo novella’ form as a kid. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Wonderful caricatures! Its been a while since i read the book,…..might just be interesting to re-read it in this form ๐Ÿ™‚
