Mom Now how about Pride and Prejudice, which is my favorite and then watching the movie: the 1940 version with Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier, the recent version with Kiera Knightly and some cute guy or the TV mini-series with Colin Firth.

Ashley Librivox.org is a phenomenal site for audiobooks! It links directly to iTunes, and there's often several versions by different readers to suite your taste. Elizabeth Klett and Karen Savage are by far my two favorites! Happy reading! =)

Kerry Well, I'm glad you liked the review, but sorry you didn't like the book!

Bubbles Jackson Totally agree!!! Her books kind of transport us back to that time. Whether we want to be transported or not, is our decision. It also makes it a lot easier when you listen to it on Audio

Zogan  Sada yes that s the spirit of 18th century writings. i wonder why the Britishers forgot their traditions and adopted American style both in living and behaving. these were their traditions which raised them to the highest ranks among nations of the world.

Sandra Heavey Reading Sense and Sensibility at the moment. Enjoying every minute of it. I love how she writes. Her characterization is second to none. Much like Charles Dickens. They are believable and true.

Watched Pride and Prejudice on DVD with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehls. All i can say is (Wow! Colin IS Mr. Darcy! He would have made an excellent Heathcliff too!Such dark brooding masculinity and handsomness! )Loved that too but read the book first. Oh I have not been disappointed although I was worried I would be. I now look forward to reading the rest of her books :-)

Looking forward also to watching BBC adaptation of Sense and Sensibility with Dan Stevens and Dominican Cooper. Their adaptations; for me anyways; are second to none.

Beatrice My second Jane Austen and I agree with practically everything you wrote here. This was surprisingly a page turner...Wasn’t really expecting that. Also can we say SCANDALOUS. Took way too long to read though because I had to keep re-reading sentences to decipher what exactly they said… Reading certain things out loud definitely made a difference.
