Allie Danielson I think this one is definitely my least favorite!

I do not know. I find it so hard to name a "least favourite" Austen, my preferences always change. Actually, I think Sense and Sensibility might be my least favourite at the moment. I will be addressing Mansfield Park as a "least favourite" Austen in my post, because it seems to be a widespread opinion.

Allie Danielson You know, it has been a really long time since I've read Sense and Sensibility, so it is also at the bottom of my list.

Jenn, I'm so glad. As I mentioned on twitter, Mansfield Park and Fanny deserve a lot more love (in my opinion).

Jenn Ravey Yes! It was my conversation with you that made me want to go back and re-read it. It's been so long ago that I actually didn't remember any of it. I have a collection of Jane Austen, but it's easily been 10 years since I've read any of her books.

But you were right about the film - I loved it as much as always, but you certainly get a touch more romance between Fanny and Edmund. *sigh* I love Johnny Lee Miller.
