I recently watched the movie with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeremy Northam, the first time for me, and it made me curious.

Well, for those who don't like much introspection, inner monologuing, and pages and pages of babbling, stick with the movie version.
But for me, fresh out of quite a streak of fluffy historical romances (though with a grittier, darker undertone), the introspection, inner monologuing and pages and pages of babbling were quite refreshing and brain-matter-engaging.

There were times I wanted to slap Miss Woodhouse, there were times I wanted to drown Miss Smith, and I missed the playfulness in the banter between Miss Woodhouse and Mr. Knightley (so very present in the movie), but despite it all, this was yet another great contribution to literature by Miss Jane Austen.
