Ohhhh, mr Darcy....



"IT is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."

Quoting duda:


P.S. Elisa, suppose you recommend "The Parfume"? I saw it (translated! alas!) here and from the very start I have a feeling it's something worth reading. Can you compare it to something? I would like to hear somebody's personal impressions, for I don't like to read "noncertified" books.



In my opinion and as far as I can tell, The Perfume can't be compared to any other book. It's unique. I'd suggest you to just go and read it, you won't regret it!

Oh and by the way, I haven't seen the movie, I like the image I have in my head from reading the book, I don't want it to get spoiled.
Some people think the movie is good, others hate it, and I just don't want to know

Dont you find that with most movies adapted from novels? I always leave the cinema angry that the story has been changed, badly adapted or simply completely different from how I imagined it in my head!!

P. S. Thanks, Elisa! I didn't see your post at once. The word "unique" is enough. Sold!

Quoting AllTooHuman:

2. Les Miserables - Victor Hugo (Ah, my dear Jan Valjean!...)



Something is rotten in the state of Denmark?
Or it was Netherlands?

But we omitted Alphonse Daudet and his "Aventures prodigieuses de Tartarin de Tarascon"... French Don Quixote...
