OK so now I have seen the movies and read the book-twice, and while I did enjoy it by the end, it is still not my favorite Jane Austen book. For me it is purely personal taste, as I have a difficult time relating to Anne. I just find myself getting frustrated that she never speaks up for herself and that she would let herself be talked out of marrying the man she loved. I know it was part of the time period, but I still prefer the Lizzie Bennett's and Jane Eyre's who stand their ground! I'm sorry, to all those people who love this book and kept telling my to try it again (since I was so young when I read it the first time). Apparently I have yet to mature!
