I wonder what a different Sanditon adaptation would be like.

IndyFan 04-04-2022 05:39 PM

I've just started the book, and the opening is already different. In the book, it starts with the carriage wreck, and the father and men go to assist.
In the DVD, some of the kids are watching the carriage go too fast, and then the girls run to assist the couple.

So kinda the same concept but with slightly different players, then.

IndyFan 04-05-2022 01:30 PM

So far; and no naked men, yet. :lol:

LilMouse 04-05-2022 07:56 PM

Don't hold your breath waiting for it :lol:

You should type the very last line here when you get to it.

You won't be seeing any.

Even Darcy coming out of the lake was fan service. That is not in the book :lol:

LilMouse 04-07-2022 12:13 PM

and now it's most people's favorite scene

IndyFan 04-07-2022 04:10 PM

When did Darcy come out of a lake?? :look:

Colin Firth did it in the mini series

Well, I thought I saw all of the different ones, but I don't remember that.


I just finished the book Sanditon, and season 1 of the Masterpiece Theater DVD's.
The book ends with 12 short chapters. The girl only made it to visit the Lady's house,
and that was the end of the book. That was episode 2 of the mini-series, so the rest
was made up for the show.

I'll eventually watch the P&P miniseries.

Did the very last sentence of Sanditon have an ending or was it a .... situation? Did it make you sad that you won't get more?

IndyFan 04-09-2022 07:33 AM

O.K.- well Netflix tells me I watched this P & P in 2011. :look:
I guess I liked the other version more, and didn't remember this one.

The last line of Sanditon:
poor Mr. Hollis! It was impossible not to feel him hardly used: to be obliged to stand back in his own house and see the best place by the fire constantly occupied by Sir Harry Denham.

Say-maybe we should have a thread of last lines of a book to compare how the author wrapped up a story. I wouldn't judge Jane from this one, since she died, and didn't get to finish.

I LOVE the 2005 version so much, so even though people rave about the Firth version, I just don't see myself loving it as much.

hmmm, I don't remember any of these characters in the series :eek: That is really bad of me.
What a way to leave it, this man will forever be a pushover.

It's more of a favorite closing lines, but it can be for non-favs too, I guess.

IndyFan 04-09-2022 11:42 PM

:blush: I missed that; must go back to check.

LilMouse 04-10-2022 05:53 PM

yes, check it out


I finished my Wickham book. I was surprised by who did the murder.
