I recently watched the Oliver Twist on Masterpiece Classic and really enjoyed it!


I'm going to have to go with Pride and Prejudice as well--it's so true to the book which is one of my all time favs!


While I also like the Colin Firth portrayal of Mr. Darcy --- I will also say that I truly enjoyed the most recent episodes of Wuthering Heights.

I am very anxious to watch this week's episode of David Copperfield. Thank you for all the valuable links!

Wuthering Heights, I greatly enjoyed!!! And I so appreciate you keeping us up to date on PBS's show's!!!

Pride and Prejudice is definitely a favourite, but lately I've been enamored of the recent Persuasion adaptation. Captain Wentworth is right up there with Mr. Darcy in my books...

Ruth @ Bookish Ruth

My favorite is last year's adaptation of Northanger Abbey (although I love Pride and Prejudice, too). I thought that they really did a good job of capturing the gothic mood of the book without making it seem cheesy or making Catherine look crazy.

I absolutely loved the 2002 adaptation of "The Forsythe Saga." I've even watched it a couple of extra times. Damien Lewis and Gina McKee were excellent!
Thanks for the chance to win DAVID COPPERFIELD!

Definitely P&P 95', Sense and Sensibility 2008, Tess of the d'Urbervilles 2009, Northanger Abbey 2007 (or 2008, which is when it actually aired on pbs).
I can't choose. *sigh* I am extremely excited for Little Dorrit though, and I'm hoping to catch David Copperfield tonight! :)

Pride and Prejudice will always be my favorite, too, but I was absolutely fascinated by Tess of the D'Urbervilles and al of the good acting. I saw David Copperfield the first time around and I thought Daniel Radcliffe was wonderful in it then . . .

Janet F

Jane Eyre is my favorite and I loved Pride and Prejudice.

Karen Haney

I think I have to say Wuthering Heights has my attention and vote!


My favorite one is Persuasion. Loved it and PBS has so many great actors and ideal choices.


I love the P&P BBC adaptation as well. Collin Firth is a great Darcy!

I have many favorites: Pride & Prejudice, the Emma with Kate Beckinsale, the Jane Eyre with Samantha Morton, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Also the Tess of the D'Urbervilles they showed several years ago--that was really good. :)

Cheryl S.

I have to agree with you. Pride & Prejudice is my favorite as well.

I have to say that the Pride and Prejudice adaptation is my favorite too, so much so that I asked for the collector's edition on dvd one Christmas. Recently I watched Tess of the d'Urbervilles and that one was beautifully done as well.

Stacey B

The 2008 Sense and Sensibility adaptation is one of my favorite movies! As well as Persuasion and Cranford. Thanks for the contest, I hope my entry is still eligable!! :)


I love Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth, but I want to also have honorable mentions as well - Jane Eyre with Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson, Bleak House with Gillian Anderson, and has the North and South with Daniela Denby-Ashe and Richard Armitage been shown on PBS yet? I know it was a BBC production but whether or not PBS has shown it is unknown to me. They are all stellar productions.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
