If you have never actually read one of Jane Austen’s books, they are as good as, and maybe even a little better than, the movies. I have read three of them and hope to read all of the eventfully.
I loved this book, but I have yet to find a movie of it I like. Unlike in the movies, if you have seen any of them, the book does not focus on the novels she is reading. Although it does mention that she is reading gothic novels, it is not bizarre in the book like it is in the movies I have seen. I thought the book was fun and one of Jane Austen’s more humorous works.
Pride and Prejudice
This was the first Jane Austen movie I ever watched, and I quickly got the book and read it. I loved the book! If you don’t read anything else, the last chapter is worth it. It is like an epilogue that none of the movies that I have seen used.
Okay, I thought this was one of the best Jane Austens. The book was so good, although there were one or two times I was a little confused, but not many. My favorite thing about this book is that Emma has some issues, but they are shown as bad things. In today’s work, faults are often shown as a good thing.
