It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
I have no memory of this but Mum tells me that my first experience with Pride and Prejudice was while we were living in Fiji in the late-90s. We stumbled across the BBC mini-series on TV and my sister and I adored it. That forgotten memory would probably explain why I’ve always had a soft spot for Colin Firth.
It wasn’t until grade 12 when the book was on the English syllabus that I actually ended up reading the book and loved it.
