Amanda Price, a young woman living in Hammersmith, London, spends yet another evening reading her beloved Pride and Prejudice. When she is disturbed by her drunk boyfriend, her annoyance is only exceeded with his unromantic proposal including the top of a beer can as a ring. On hearing a sound in her bathroom, Amanda finds herself face to face with one of her treasured protagonists, Elizabeth Bennet. She seems to have entered Amanda's world through a seemingly unusable door. The incredulous Amanda crosses the threshold to the other side of the door and alas truly finds herself in the household of the Bennets and at the beginning of her favorite novel Pride and Prejudice without an Elizabeth.
Did You Know?
When Amanda discovers Elizabeth in her bathroom for the second time Elizabeth gives her the name of a distant place in Alaska "Point Barrow". Point Barrow would not be discovered until 1826, Jane Austen died in 1817. See more
It is a truth generally acknowledged that we are all longing to escape. I escape always to my favourite book "Pride and Prejudice". I've read it so many times now the words just say themselves in my head and it's like a window opening, it's like I'm actually there. It's become a place I know so intimately I can see that world, I can touch it. I can see Darcy. Whoa Amanda.
Now where was I?
