Hello everyone! hope your having a fantastic day. ;)
TODAY I decided to start a topic about..well...Elizabeth Gaskell. I'd like for you to share which was your favorite and what you thought of the books/movies. (North and South; Wives and Daughters; Cranford; and Mary Barton(don't think theres a movie *yet*)).
I haven't read any of the books actually but my sister has and says they are basically word for word the same as the movies, so I think..whats the point when I could watch the movie and read something I haven't seen OR read, eh? ;)
I think I'd have to say that my favorite was North & South although it's hard cause they were ALL good! :D I could watch them OVER AND OVER! North and South just had the best characters ever and makes me fall in love with them every time I watch the movie. ;) My sisters and I love Fanny, the ditsy blonde, and Nicholas, pauper and loving father. ;) And Mr. Thornton is just AWESOME! =D
Wives and Daughters is such a sweet story about a very lovable, humble young woman going through the trials of life in the victorian era. ♥ gr8 movie.
Cranford: HILARIOUS! I laughed til I cried! Really, theres nothing to say for it but AMAZING, a FAVORITE, and a warning to those who get a mite squeemish;) there were 2 parts (1 in the 1st episode, 1 in the last) that were rather gruesome(especially the first one xP). All in all, a GREAT and touching movie. ♥♥
Please share your thoughts on the works/adaptions:

Hmm I hadn't heard that about Judi Dench...YES! she IS such a good actress I love her! she did De Bourg real well too. ;)
I haven't seen the Christmas one yet, how was it?

Thats alright Soph. ;) you can share when you watch them! :D

Nicole | 406 comments I LOVE all the Elizabeth Gaskell's! I might even go so far to say I like them more than Jane Austen...& I LOVE those too! I'm not sure I could pick a favorite...Cranford is the most recent I've watched, though, so I'm still laughing over it :)

I clearly must!!!! Better than Austen - impossible ;)

Caity | 4434 comments Mod
Yes,Soph they are amazing. Some people don't like them as much and I personally like them equally. I thnk Gaskell adds an element of suspense and plot which I like, but sh could never make me dislike Austen at all. Lol I'll always be loyal to Jane. ;)
