    Jane Austen Fans?!

    Advertisements
    Hello!

    So I was just wondering who on here is a fan of Jane Austen's works?

    Favorite book?
    Favorite character? (male/female)
    Favorite movie adaptation? (or worst, in your opinion)
    "...so have I chosen, both the sweet and the bitter."

    I love them all! I especially love Emma and Pride & Prejudice.

    I love the movie Emma with Gwenyth Paltrow and prefer the long Colin Firth version of Pride & Prejudice (though I've watched the Keira Knightley version many times too).

    Pride and Prejudice is by far my favorite. I love Keira Knightley as Elizabeth. I could read that book a million times and not have it grow old.

    Haha, you and I have had this discussion! It's funny, because I just also had this discussion with DB's mom when she e-mailed me about his graduation plans

    Favorite book has to be Pride and Prejudice or Persuasion. I just love Elizabeth as a heroine, but honestly identify a lot with Anne. I have a tough time picking out my favorite male character... And the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice is by far my favorite movie adaption!

    I love Jane Austen!

    My favorite book has to be Emma. She's also my favorite character (although I love Mr. Knightley and Mr. Darcy too!), even though she's snobby and selfish, she has really nice qualities too.

    And I love the Colin Firth version of P&P.
