Anyone who likes Jane Austen?
Absolutely love Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice was my favorite.
Yes, I do. Love Pride and Prejudice <3
I am starting with sense and sensibility now. I also loved pride and prejudice
What a beautiful name you have xx
Love love love!
Yes! <3 <3 <3
<3 LOVE <3
Adore her….grew up reading her <3
I’ve only read Pride and Prejudice but I loooveee that! plan to read more by her.
Try sense and sensibility and Mansfield park
I want to read everything by her but there are so many books that I wanna read before but if these are her best then they’ll be my next Austen reads. Thanks! 🙂
Sense and sensibility is more like Pride and Prejudice . Mansfield Park is denser and darker and more about class. My favourite scene in Sense and Sensibility is the process by which John convinces himself that to do almost nothing for his step-Mother and sisters would perfectly meet his father ‘s dying wish that he care for them! Seen that so many times!
Great, thanks! 😀
Yes my favourites are “Persuasion” and “Northanger Abbey” after reading “Northanger Abbey” I started reading “The Mysteries of Udolpho”.
Yes I also like Persuasion which was her last book wasn’t it? And it does have dark overtones and some strange disturbing passages . I can’t read it for fun, but I’ve read it four or five times!
I do! I love her and her work! 👍
Yes! Pride and Prejudice is usually the book I call most favorite of all time! I haven’t read any of her others yet, but I own Sense and Sensibility and am planning on reading it soon!
Almost every successful Mills and Boone Romance was based on Pride and Prejudice. They would give the author a guideline which included the key elements. Some famous authors wrote Mills and Boone’s like actors do voice -overs to bring in the bacon and M and B were always very kind to their authors – I don’t know about modern times!
Yes ..my favourites are Northanger Abbey ,Pride and Prejudice & Persuasion
I’ve been trying to read Persuasion for a while now.
I love her books..her writing style
Yes. All of her work. To different degrees 🙂
Yes! Austenite here.
I had Northanger Abbey as a literature book in school more than 7 years ago and I was the only one in my class who enjoyed reading it…😆😆
Yep! One of my favourites!
Yes, love her!
Especially, of course, Pride and Prejudice. 🙂
adore her in fact!
I re-read at least two novels each year
Yes, I do!
Love her, but I didn’t particularly enjoy Emma as her interference annoyed me and her dad exasperated me.
Well of course it’s meant to. Didn’t Austen say she was going to make a heroine no one would like but herself . Really Emma is obnoxious and even perhaps unintentionally cruel. She is a very modern heroine. I suppose today she’d be a self righteous feminist activist or a politician, but there’s Knightley to remind her of herself!
Oh, oh. Yes I know that she was meant to be hard to like but I am a bit concerned about your comments about activists and politicians. Are we still at the stage where women, in order to be lovable, should be docile and leave our destinies in the hands of men? Please tell me that you don’t mean that.
I just gave it an edge to provoke -my unedited one was worse! Knightly prompts her conscience – what a nice and interesting character – and she is frightfully young and “dreadfully”well-meaning. She reminds me a bit of Alden Pyle in The Quiet American! This is wonderful: “Were she your equal in situation—but, Emma, consider how far this is from being the case. She is poor; she has sunk from the comforts she was born to; and, if she live to old age, must probably sink more. Her situation should secure your compassion. It was badly done, indeed!—You, whom she had known from an infant, whom she had seen grow up from a period when her notice was an honour, to have you now, in thoughtless spirits, and the pride of the moment, laugh at her, humble her.” I must be honest, I usually cry when. I read this bit!
Made this for my wife the other day.
Yes, very much. Austen was a genius in making the events of ordinary lives fascinating.
