Jane Austen died July 18, 1817. She wrote six novels that remain widely read. Austen accomplished this during an age when women were neither allowed or expected to pursue any occupation outside home & family. Nearly 200 years later one of the best novelists of our time, PD James, wrote Death Comes to Pemberley, a sequel to Pride & Prejudice. The book is written in Austen’s style. I thoroughly enjoyed James’ tribute to Austen. If you’re a fan of Austen, it’s a must read. #writersofinstagram #readersofinstagram #janeausten #pdjames #classics #englishliterature

This may be sacrilegious but I only read ‘Pride and Prejudice’ because I had to do my GCSE coursework on it way back when, and I remember finding it so boring that I don’t think I even finished it…! But I decided to give P.D. James’ murderous spin-off a go anyway. ~

It’s six years after Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy begin their life together at Pemberley and they’re enjoying marital bliss and life with two young sons. Then, tragedy strikes and a man is found murdered in the woods of the estate. Dastardly Wickham is back on the scene and he becomes the most likely suspect. An investigation and trial ensue and the story is tied up neatly at the end. ~

To be honest, I found it all a bit boring and dry, and while I could appreciate that P.D. James had captured Austen’s writing style quite well, that’s probably the reason I didn’t enjoy it all that much. I stand by 16-year-old Me’s opinion that the characters are a bit dull and even the addition of a murder mystery couldn’t liven up Austen’s world for me. 📚 @fionasraleigh ~ —————————————————————————

Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth welcome Mr. & Mrs. Bennet for the upcoming ball. I can't imagine what's going through Darcy's brain matter, Death Comes to Pemberley (2013)

It has been a while since I've posted but I've been busy. My parents came over to stay with me for a week and it's been a welcome distraction. 
I found this wonderful sequel to Pride and Prejudice written by P.D. James. It obviously cannot compare to Jane Austen but it takes place 6 years after Darcy's marriage to Elizabeth. They have 2 son's with Jane and Bingley living close by and Elizabeth preparing for a ball at her beautiful Pemberly home. The night before the ball, Lydia Wickham tumbles out screaming that her husband is dead. 
This book was a crime thriller. The setting of the Pride and Prejudice era was perfect but it wasn't filled with misunderstood feelings and presumptions nor was it told from anyone's perspective. Except perhaps Darcy's sometimes. It's a good read but it's clearly borrowed characters in a crime setting. I enjoyed it because I love Jane Austen so much.

#ChildrenOfMen #AlfonsoCuaron 🎥 #EmmanuelLubeski 📷 #PDJames 📖 #CliveOwen #JulianneMoore #MichaelCaine #ChiwetelEjiofor #PeterMullan #DannyHuston ... I have this film rated #16 in my list of Favorite films 2006 @favfilmsvvv it was an ultraloaded year of good films. The duo Cuaron and Lubezki working together once more to create this modern classic, that still feels fresh. I didn’t remember the scene with Danny Huston, but could you image have #Guernica in your dining room?, the chemistry between Julianne Moore and Clive Owen in the car was enjoyable and the moment where ‘the other Dylan’ born is very powerful, in @romacuaron there’s a very similar scene but here this event is for hope, and thats the message that I take with me when the credits roll

Also the OST is amazing! #RubyTuesday 👌🏻

I took an Uber to a book sale in Ravena.  I forget how long the ride was but I got a bag full of books for $3. The Uber driver was the best, hanging around until I was done. I also had a hot dog.

Im Jahr 1803, sechs Jahre nach der Hochzeit von Mr. Darcy und seiner Elizabeth, geht das Leben auf dem Herrensitz Pemberley seinen idyllischen Gang. Doch am Abend vor dem großen Herbstball wird die Vorfreude empfindlich gestört: Aus dem waldigen Teil des Pemberley-Parks bricht in rasender Fahrt eine Kutsche, darin eine völlig aufgelöste Lydia Wickham – Elizabeths missratene kleine Schwester –, die behauptet, ihr Mann sei ermordet worden! Nachdem die Damen in Sicherheit gebracht wurden, machen sich Mr. Darcy und sein Cousin in den Wald auf, um den Toten zu suchen. Was sie finden, ist ein lebender, blutverschmierter, verwirrter Wickham – und neben ihm eine Leiche.

Next #summerreading: #childrenofmen by #pdjames. The concept: humans have stopped being able to reproduce quite suddenly. What motivates humanity if there is no longer the need to create a future, a legacy? Do our choices and actions still matter? Does morality still matter? It has a very different feel from the movie, which I enjoyed, but #thebookisbetter obviously. Quite a poetic, thoughtful piece. If you enjoy dystopian fiction, here is one of the more hopeful of the genre.

I stumbled across this delightful little book on @bookoutlet a few weeks ago - and it’s the perfect read for lovers of the British detective novel.
•
PD James is famous for her mystery novels, and in Talking, she also shows her knowledge of the genre itself. I loved watching her trace the history of the mystery novel, contrasting the cozy British village murder with the American hardboiled gangster murder of the same decade, and dissecting what makes a detective novel worth your reading time.
•
This is definitely a niche book for mystery lovers. And I’m so glad I found it, because it made me appreciate all those books even more!

여자에게 어울리지 않는 직업에 종사하는 주인공의 생활담입니다. 직업이 탐정이다보니 자살과 살인, 은폐와 공모가 있습니다. 
그러나 사실 추리소설이라기보다는 생활비를 벌기위한 고군분투기에 가까운 탐정소설입니다. 
단, 주인공이 여성이고 1972년에 발표되었으며 72년은 미의회가 ‘남녀 평등 헌법 수정안'(ERA·Equal Rights Amendment)을 승인한 해입니다.

So it’s crazy to think 5 days ago I started reading an hour a day and I already finished a book. The Road was amazing and heart wrenching all at once(as I expected from the movie). The hardest thing for me is there were no chapters and I’m a milestone type of reader. So that was odd. Well now I’m on to the next, The Children of Men by P.D. James. I fell in love with this story by watching the film same as The Road. So I’m super excited about this one. #thechildrenofmen #pdjames #5booksinamonth #bookstagram •

My dog is having a cruciate operation today, so whilst waiting, my daughter and I have been exploring Bliss Hill, a Victorian Town near Ironbridge and the animal hospital. ☕️🥳It’s also my birthday so we’re having a few sweet treats as well. ☕️ The featured book is an exploration of the terrible Ratcliffe Highway Murders from 1811. This book is a reconstruction by P.D. James with historian T.A. Critchley to discover the truth about the murders. These vicious crimes provoked nationwide panic and the Government offered an unprecedented reward for the conviction of the murderers. Drawing on public records, newspaper clippings and hitherto unpublished sources, James and Critchley expertly shift the evidence to shed new light on this infamous mystery. ☕️ ~ these murders also appear in Alison Goodman’s ‘The Dark Days’ trilogy ☕️

"사람의 아이들". 1992년작.

P.D제임스의 글은 '여자에게 어울리지 않는 직업'과 '검은 탑' 그리고 '탐정 소설을 말하다' 이렇게 세 권을 읽었는데 이때까지와는 아주 다른 인상을 주는 글입니다. SF인 점도 그렇지만 지금까지 대체 왜 이 작가가 그렇게 유명한지를 이해하지 못했다면 이제야 작가의 역량을 확인한 기분이 듭니다.

인류는 번식에 실패해 멸망을 앞두고 있고 문명 세상은 서서히 몰락합니다. 언젠가는 오게 되는 종의 멸종이 코앞에 닥친 순간, 주인공 테오는 그의 지루하고 고상한 삶을 이어갑니다. 세상이 몰락하고 사회가 무너져도 이미 기득권인 그에게는 큰 차이가 없습니다. 
아이들이 사라진 세상을 비관하고 슬퍼하는 사람들을 멀리 떨어진 시선으로 관망할 뿐.

느리게 흘러가던 이야기는 이런 세상을 바꾸고자 하는 철없는 다섯 젊은이와의 만남으로 급격하게 변화하고, 테오의 심리 변화와 왜 그렇게 되는지에 대한 설정이 이야기 중에 완벽하게 녹아있습니다.

저는 테오나 줄리언보다 잰에게 매혹되어 이야기를 읽었어요. 어찌 보면 만들어진 악역인데, 묘하게 매력적이에요. 대체 이 사람은 무슨 생각을 하는 걸까 읽는 내내 고민하다 어느 순간 아, 그는 다른 시대의 히틀러구나. 라고 깨닫게 되더라고요.

젊고 건강한 사람들의 정자와 난자를 검사하고 아이를 낳을 수 있는 조건의 인간이 남아있는지를 철저하게 파악하는 권력자의 위치에 있는 잰. 그는 영국인들의 안전을 위해 범죄자를 섬에 유배 보내고 이민자를 몰아내기도 합니다. 그에게 중요한 것은 유전자적으로 결함이 없는 영국인, 그리고 그들의 완벽한 세포에서 태어날 2세. 이제 생식은 권력의 상징으로 변모했습니다.

생식 능력을 잃은 인류는 어떻게든 후대를 찾기 위해 노력하고 잰 역시 투자를 아끼지 않지만 신은 그런 인류의 바람을 비웃기라도 하듯 간질 증세가 있던 아버지와 손가락이 기형인 어머니 사이에 잉태된 아이를 인류의 마지막 희망으로 내보냅니다. 작가는 교묘하게 이 사실을 흘러가게 장치해 두었는데 결국 이걸 깨닫고서야 잰의 시야가 보였어요. 그리고 나서야 이야기 속에 쿡쿡 박혀 있는 얼음 같던 불안감과 불편함이 녹아 사라졌다고나 할까.

잰이 테오를 계속 '죽이지 않겠다' 혹은 '부총통이 돼라', '내 곁에 있어라'라고 말한 이유도 딱히 테오를 소중하게 여겨서라기보다는 그가 자신의 '핏줄(사촌)'이기 때문이지 않았을까 싶더군요. 뭐, 잰이 테오를 좋아한 건 의도적인 것 같기도 합니다만. 테오가 혈족이기에 사랑할 수 있었던 걸지도 모르고요. 끝까지 미혼이었죠, 이 완벽한 총통님.

하지만 그런 그도 마지막에는 결국 테오에게 총을 겨눕니다. 잰의 반지를  빼앗아 낀 테오의 모습이 많은 가능성을 시사합니다. 과연 테오는 어떤 선택을 했을지도 궁금하고요. 여운이 남는 마지막이었어요.

아주 다양한 각도에서 즐길 수 있는 글이어서 오랜 시간 들여가며 느리게 읽었습니다. 문장은 잘 쓰지만 어딘지 고리타분한 탐정 소설을 쓰는 작가라는 제 판단이 얼마나 모자란 것이었는지 이번에 깨달았달까. '죽음이 팸벌리로 온다'는 절판되기 전에 사두기는 했는데 오만과 편견을 다시 읽고 읽으려고 (왜냐...등장 인물들 이름이 기억이 나지 않았기 때무네...) 일단 넣어 두었고 '나이팅게일의 비밀'은 중고 판매라도 찾아볼 생각이에요.

이렇게 된 이상 국내 번역본은 싹 쓸겠습니다.

Har aldrig läst något av P.D James men tyckte det här verkade vara en perfekt sommarbok. Dock har jag fått traggla mig igenom prologen. Så många namn och bröllop hit och dit, orkade inte ta till mig. Hoppas det flyter på bättre snart, ett mord ska ju ske åtminstone 😄

« C'est quand les gens commencent à dire la vérité qu'ils ont souvent le plus besoin d'un avocat. »⁠
⁠
Journée comme une autre pour Cordelia Gray. Elle allait retrouver son mentor, acolyte et patron, Bernie Pryde comme tous les matins… et ne s’attendait pas à le retrouver mort dans son bureau. Il lui a laissé une note de suicide et toutes ses possessions - y compris son pistolet et son affaire de détective privé. Alors qu’elle se démène pour la maintenir à flot, sa première cliente lui rend visite : l’assistante d’un éminent scientifique dont le fils est mort de manière suspecte. Cordelia accepte l’affaire. Son enquête l’emmène à Cambridge, rencontrer les anciens amis, professeurs et employeurs de Mark. Malgré le scepticisme et l’hostilité qu’elle rencontre - une jeune femme détective, est-ce bien raisonnable… -, le doute s’impose à elle : le jeune Mark s’est-il vraiment suicidé ? ⁠
⁠
Envie d’une jeune femme détective dans un roman policier qui tient la route ? Hop, embarqué dans le tote bag de plage. Je n’en ferais pas une lecture coup de coeur, mais ça m’a tenue quelques heures de voyage en train avec plaisir. Une enquête un peu vintage, dans le Cambridge anglais chic des années 70, avec une jeune détective rafraîchissante. ⁠

A Mind to Murder by P. D. James (1963) is set in a psychiatric clinic where psychiatrists struggle to manage their own personal relationships while counselling their clients about theirs... 'Mr Burge enlarged on the immaturity, coolness and insensitivity of his wives in a querulous falsetto. Dr Steiner’s clinical judgement, not uninfluenced by the late effects of a large lunch and the unwise choice of a cream donut with his afternoon tea, told him that the time was not yet ripe to point out that the one defect shared by the three mesdames Burge had been a singular lack of judgement in their choice of husband.' 'Dr Steiner doodled on his notepad, regarded his doodle with interest and concern, looked at it again with the pad held upside down and became for a moment more preoccupied with his own subconscious than with that of his patient.' 'There had...been no demur over providing Baguley with a new and highly expensive contraption for shocking his patients out of the few wits they still possessed.' P. D. James is a very literary writer but her books are definitely not in the class of ‘cosy mysteries.’ Review on blog.

Do you have a stack of unread thriller books?
.
I saw this tag on @budgetbooklover ‘s post and I thought it was a fun thing to do. I have quite a number of crime and thriller books which are still unread. Some have been on my bookshelves for a few years 🙈 while a few were bought a few months back. 
Here are some of the books still unread:
📘Think of a Number
📘The Husband’s Secret
📘Luckiest Girl Alive
📘The Vault
📘The Silent Patient
📘The Private Patient
I’m hoping that by posting this here I will have to read them sometime soon 😅 .
.
Have you read any of these? .

Había estado esperando un día de lluvia para una foto así.

Hasta el momento esto es lo único que me ha gustado de #pdjames
