So much better than the movies and TV productions. What a lot of young ladies to remember: Lydia, Catherine, Mary, Elizabeth, Jane — not helped by the occasional Kitty, Eliza and Miss Bennet — plus Maria, Charlotte and four more little Lucases, Caroline, Louisa and Georgiana. I'm not sure whether there were any Philips children as well.I suppose with large families being the norm, people were used to remembering a lot of names and it is only surprising that there are only three Bingleys and two ...more
Re-reading these amazing novels for the umpteenth time! This particular occasion was my Jane Austen Reading Group that is focusing this weekend on Sense and Sensibility. Jane Austen novels are always fresh, witty,ironic and so elegantly written, but above all there is always a brilliant cast of characters. It is hard to choose between the humor of Mr. Collins or the vanity of Sir Walter Eliot or the charm of Elizabeth or the gentleness of Anne or the trickiness of Lucy Steele or the devotion of ...more
I was really only trying to comment on Persuasion which I just reread for my book club. But goodreads doesn't have a nice cover picture for it, so I'll go with this. I like Jane Austen very much and it's nice to reread a classic once in a while. Occasionally I get impatient with a shrinking, overly modest heroine who doesn't speak up, set everything straight, and grasp her chance at happiness! But I have to remind myself of the historical setting and also that Austen had to spin the story out en ...more
After reading all six of Jane Austen's major novels in sequence, Pride and Prejudice is still my favorite, but they are all worth reading again and again. I read Pride and Prejudice in one weekend and then watched the movie right after. Persuasion and Emma are both very close seconds however.
this was Laugh out loud material, but for some reason no one agrees...
WERidos...Or am i??? Oh well my point is that it's REAL good!!!!
By the way, i only read pride and prejudice (so far), but there wasn't the book itself...
I realized about a month ago that while I've seen every Jane Austen film ever made, I've only actually read Pride and Prejudice; a travesty that my final selections shall rectify. Let the Austen festival begin!

sort of especially looking forward to this one because i have read P&P and S&S as well as seen movie versions of both (including Tamil adaptations!) but have not yet read Persuasion.

Can't explain it, but I love Jane Austen. I have read all her books, as well as a couple of spin offs. My alltime favorite is Pride and Prejudice, although Emma is a close second.
Susan Kaye
I use the edition of Persuasion from this set as my writing companion. It has notes written on the pages and many, many sticky notes hanging out of the pages. A sentimental fave.
Karen Snow
Sense and Sensibility: Though it was slow getting started for me, I enjoyed the book. As always with Austin, the characters are explored and I enjoyed the book overall
I love the world of Jane Austen. I can easily relate to her characters and she is able to spin a romance in a way to leave you hanging on to every word.
All three of these are excellent books, very well written and are just barrels of fun. Charming and captivating, I recommend these to any reader!!
Loved Loved Loved Pride and Prejudice! I'm just starting on Persuasion and haven't read this one before so we'll see!
Phoebe Cox
all great books. just takes a minute to get into the languge and then the story becomes great.
What can I say....we ALL know my love for Jane Austen.
Will always be my favorites!!!
