I'm sorry I got that bitchy...I loved that book and consider book adaptations should be sacred, we're talking about not only giving life to somebody's creation but to give an image of that character (not just face, a voice, accent, body, the whole) to many people who might've come up with their own versions...hence I hate most book-based movies, they screw things up so badly.
"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense." Elizabeth Bennet
