What is your favorite Jane Austen book and why?
Do you enjoy Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park or Persuasion?
Pride and Prejudice...I can relate to it on many levels, not as a character but an observer of life in general..
I do like Pride and Prejudice and must say that is my favorite. I am watching Sense and Sensibility right now with my 22 year old daughter and she is loving it! She now plans on reading this Austen as well. We watched "The Jane Austen Book Club" recently and it inspired us to visit the works of Austen again. I cannot wait to read all the books. Austen is such an awesome read!
None. Many years ago I managed to read the first paragraph of a Jane Austen novel. It was so abysmal that I put the book down, and ever since then, I have made a conscious effort of never attempting another one.
I love all of Jane Austen's books, but as to favourites, I'm torn between 'Emma' and 'Pride and Prejudice'. I just love the characters themselves. But it's also the interplay and dialogue between them that makes these books so enjoyable. She's the kind of author that I can read over and over again, and never get bored.
I don't really like Jane Austen's books either. I loved the movie, Pride and Prejudice.
