Zimbabve'den bir bebek almaya çalışan bir gazetecinin ve karısının dokunaklı bir hikayesi. Kitap, Afrika'daki siyasi istikrarsızlık hakkında birçok bilgi veriyor. Ayrıca orada AIDS durumunun ciddiyeti hakkında bir tartışma var.
I picked up this book because I absolutely love the Kiera Knightley (etc) movie version of the play, but realized I'd never actually read the book. It's a quick read (7 hrs) if you're familiar with the plot outline, but some of the language is VERY dated and has to be read twice. There is so much more information in the book than the film, however good an interpretation it may be. Notable is the take on Mrs. Bennett (the mother) - the movie portrays her as slightly dotty, but with everyone's best interests at heart. The book goes farther, and states at the end that Mrs. Bennett really disappears from Lizzy and Jane's lives, because she is an embarrassment. I'm sure if I were more familiar with the ins and outs of the small social nuances in England at the time, parts of the book would be even more striking. Lastly, the end of the book details a lot more after Lizzy and Darcy marry - if you (like me) were slightly unsatisfied by the movie's interpretation of this, or wondered what happened to Jane, Caroline Bingley, or Lydia and Wickham, the book does go into all of that. All in all, much better than Emma or Northanger Abbey, and I would definitely recommend you read the original version!
