in consequence of the missive, Differences in medium I gather, penned by Lucy K
In the "Making of ..." on my copy of P&P2, AD comments that his objective in adapting the book was to convey the sense of "enormous speed and energy". The book "goes like a train ... something is happening on every page ... and is full of events with both the characters and the action." In the opening scene with Darcy and Bingley he wanted to convey that sense of energy, which, IMHO, and as you've said so well, he captures beautifully. Bravo AD!
