Lost in Austen

What is the special fascination with Pride and Prejudice? I've read and loved the book. I've read Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife. I've read The Darcy Daughters.There are dozens of further extensions of the story that I've not picked up. This year has seen Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I've seen Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in Pride & Predjudice and in Bridget Jones's Diary.

Now I've just finished watching Lost in Austen, and once again find myself in love with the characters and amused by the twists in this version.

But what is it about this story that begs us all to return? And why is it so easy to run with in new and different ways?
