One day my brain just had enough of all that and I had read all the books in my personal library, so I walked down to the library at the school. Low and behold they had a full shelf of classic literature. I picked up "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen and began to read. I was hooked.
I have read "Emma", "Sense and Sensability", "Northanger Abbey", besides "Pride and Prejudice". I still need to read "Mansfield Park" and "Persuasion".
I own the A&E miniseries of "Pride and Prejudice", the Hollywood version starring Kiera Knightly (way too modern than the book), "Emma" starring Gweneth Paltrow and a whole collection of the movies as done by the BBC in the 70's and 80's and are not very well done at all! I also own the very well done "Sense and Sensability" starring Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet.
I have seen the "Emma" starring Kate Beckinsale, but I thought she made Emma seem mean. And I have seen "Persuasion" starring Ciran Hinds and Amanda Root. I want to own that! Very well done!
