I was wondering, how many of ull have read Jane Austen's novel. I read pride and prejudice recently and quite liked it. I m planning to read sense and sensibility next. So any Jane Austen fan here?

Here!
PP was the first classic I ever read in 8th grade and fell in love with the genre.
I m not a fan of her other books though. All are written on similar lines but the witty dialogues and characterizations are something not to pass by.

Pride and Prejudice is my favorite novel as well. Read it for the first time when I was 17. Since then I have read it few times...I just love the connection/attraction between Elisabeth and Mr.Darcy!

I also liked "Emma" but, not as much as "Pride and Prejudice".

I am not a fan of Austen's other books! I have found themů bit boring! Sleepy

I read Pride and Prejudice in my seventh grade. I've reread it several times over after that because I never get enough of it, it's my most favorite after the Harry Potter series. I have read half of Emma as well but somehow I could never finish it. Ermm

And recently I read Sense and Sensibility which is a beautiful book. Jane Austen's books have the recurring theme of matrimony. She has produced some of the most unforgettable heroes and heroes of her time. And then there's her wit, way with comedy and sarcasm and majestic writing! From where I see it, she wasn't a creative genius as far as the themes for her books went but her characterizations are the best I have ever read. I'm a fan of hers, yes. Embarrassed

PnP is beautifully written and the characters are by far one of the best etched. I read it back when I was in 9th..i still read it again to understand the notions and working of that period. Haven't read any of her other works though reading the synopsis the themes seem to be similar.


PnP is one of those books that would definitely stand the test of time. Literary enthusiasts shouldn't miss this one!
