I love Jane Austen! Her style of writing her novels is just extraordinary. Pride & Prejudice is one of my favorite books.

I have been a huge Austen fan since I read Sense & Sensibility at 16. I've read most of her works but Pride & Prejudice is my favorite. Her books have a pleasant, feel-good quality to them which make them such a joy to read. Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey are also pretty impressive with the latter having a slightly gothic/ghostly touch, something you don't normally associate with Austen. Emma, however, is one book I started to read but never got to finish.

My first Austen, like most of you was Pride and Prejudice. I have read all her books and find her witty. Her female characters are more human when compared to her male characters, who are paragons in one form or another. 

All her books are fab, Emma starts out slow but it isn't as bad. It definitely isn't PnP or SnS but is good on its own.

Thats a good idea. Emma is actually a very good book and she is widely known to be one of the most flawed characters of Austen's works. Here the main protagonist herself is actually a grey-shaded character; She is likable but at the same time you end up disapproving her in many instances. I just never got around to finishing it as I had already watched the movie versions so the novelty had worn off.
