Bill  Kerwin I willingly admit my failure as a perfect lover. But after all, I am married too, and my loyalty--alas!--must be divided!

That's very sweet of you to say.

Lada This Elizabeth Benett is fine, perspicatiouys and witty independant and sensible but sensitive also. Something in between Marianne and Elianor in Sense and Sensibility

Sahel Of all the people I never thought you would rate this a 5-star, and I just don't know why! But now that you like it, I feel my interest in this novel wasn't really for nothing :-)

Dirk Being a bookish fellow, I've always believed that if I were introduced into the Bennett household, I would've headed straight for Mary.

Boy, aren't we intellectuals! I mean, most guys are arguing about "Gilligan's Island": is it Ginger, or Mary Ann?

Dirk I think you're dating ourselves. Real guys are debating about Beyoncé versus Kim Kardashian.

Who?

But those babes in the old novels and plays, they live forever.

Gloria It's been at least seven years and I still am more than half in love with Captain Wentworth. Guess I'm more of a Persuasion girl, though Mr. Darcy will always be a favourite!


message 12: by Anuradha (new)

Anuradha And I aspire to be Elizabeth Bennet! :D


message 13: by Jane (new)

Jane Jago Once famously describes as a young man changes his manners and a young woman changes her mind. But so much more than that...


message 14: by Lawrence (new)

Lawrence FitzGerald On the short list for the best novel in English.


message 15: by Michael (new)

Michael Perkins And an astute observer of people.
