forgottenbennet: (Mary - PPZ)
[personal profile] forgottenbennet
I recommend these books (and movies) - It simply isn't fair in my opinion that poor Mary is constantly outshone by both her older sisters and her younger. Having a book mostly from Elizabeth's POV on how she sees things (whether they be biased or only based on "fact") as based on this quote from P&P:

“There is, I believe, in every disposition a tendency to some particular evil, a natural defect, which not even the best education can overcome."

"And your defect is to hate everybody."

"And yours," he replied with a smile, "is willfully to misunderstand them."
(Pride and Prejudice)


is this a hint that perhaps Elizabeth has misunderstood Mary? I certainly hope so!

Movies:
Pride and Prejudice (1940)
Pride and Prejudice (2005)


Books:

- "Return To Longbourn" by Shannon Winslow
- "Longbourn" by Jo Baker (Not based around Mary but the help of Longbourn. It shows Mary in a far softer light than Elizabeth does)
- "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" by Jane Austen and Seth-Grahame-Smith (both the regular and deluxe editions)
- and the sequels "Dawn of the Dreadfuls" and " Dreadfully Ever After" by Steve Hockensmith
- The "Leaving Bennet Behind" series by Sarah Johnson ("Chosen" "Cherished" and "Pursued" are the first three books, there will probably be more)
- "Just to Hear 'I Love You' " by Sarah Johnson - After Mary goes deaf after a childhood accident, she grows closer to her two older sisters, especially Elizabeth who is very protective of her.
- Pride and Prometheus" by John Kessel (What if Mary Bennet met Victor Frankenstein?) in his story collection "The Baum Plan"
- "Mary, Mary Not So Ordinary" and "Mary, Mary Oh So Contrary" by S.M. Klassen
- "Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven" (Book 1 of the Regency Magic series) by Beth Deitchman
- Mary Bennet: A Continuation of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” - by Jennifer Becton (Short but satisfying!)
- The Pursuit of Mary Bennet - by Pamela Mingle


and as a bonus :

- How not to father: Mr. Bennet and Mary
