Austen

I'm starting an on-line course about Jane Austen today and I'm really excited. I know liking her is a bit of a cliché but I think she's wonderful as do lots of fans all over the world. Any austenites out there?

I'm ashamed to say I didn't know who Jane Austen was until googling it. That is the right Jane Austen right?

Yeah, that's the one. Haven't you seen the Hollywood adaptation of Sense and Sensibility with Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson? Or Emma starring Gwyneth Paltrow ?

No, I haven't, but then again, there are lots of movies I haven't seen.

And "Pride and Prejudice", a BBC series with Colin FLirth or the movie with Keyra Kingthley.

Thumbs up

And so is Colin Firth in the wet shirt coming out of the lake. It's become a myth in England: there isn't a single girl who isn't in love with him in that scene (me included).

I agree that Jane is a must and it´s not only because I´m also Jane.
She´s quite good.

Leí Northanger Abby hace años y me gustaba mucho. Maria Jose, la admiro. Imagino que leer una novela grande como Pride and Prejudice en un idioma que no es su primer lengua es un reto. El inglés de 1800 es distinto.
Depende en el escritor, pero cuando atrevo de leer un libro en español me pierdo frecuentamente. Encuentro el significado de las palabras pero pierdo el sentido de la historia. Para mí Gabriel Garcia Márquez es difícil pero me encanta el ambiente que crea. Isabel Allende es más fácil pero menos divertido.
