And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

‪#‎NEWS‬ || ‪#‎RosamundPike‬ to READ Pride and Prejuduce audio book to be released December 8!
“And can one ever have too much Jane Austen? I think not. There are lots of audio versions of Austen’s novels out there already, but Rosamund Pike’s sprightly upcoming “Pride and Prejudice,’’ in which the “Gone Girl’’ star does all the voices — not just Lizzy and her sisters, but Mr. and Mrs. Bennet, Darcy, Wickham, and the rest — will be an entertaining addition to the fold when it is released Dec. 8.” Boston Globe’s article
