Making Sense of Jane Austen
One thing this movie made me want to do was to pick up a Jane Austen novel and finish it. Yes, I am guilty of not being able to get through her books. Why? I don't understand! I love the movies about her books, and I think she's totally fascinating. Just as with many of you, I do consider her one of my heroes. I totally love Jane Austen, I just can't seem to get through her writing.
This is an absolute tragedy, I know. But please, don't be appalled at my confession. I want to turn my life around! I am absolutely determined to get through her books. All of them. I own Pride and Prejudice so I will make that one my first priority. As soon as I finish my current reading choice (Emma Smith: Mormon Enigma) my plan is to immerse myself into Jane Austen's creations. One word at a time.
I would love to know what has stirred some of you into reading her novels. What is it about Jane Austen that makes so many people tick? After SO MANY LONG LIFE CHANGING YEARS, why oh why is she as popular as ever? How can a writer stand that test of time? She is incredible. It's undeniable. I am looking forward to finally clicking with the Jane Austen world!
