crienselt: (She's a romantic)
[personal profile] crienselt
One: I have been working my way through the Jane Austen Collection DVDs, featuring adaptations circa the 70s/80s, that I got for Christmas several years ago. I've yet to watch Pride and Prejudice and my Sense and Sensibility disc won't read, but in general, I have enjoyed them, especially after I got over the staging and other nitpicky things. Sure Mansfield Park was a little boring, but it kept me watching. However, Northanger Abbey was beyond ridiculous and I have been rambling on for the sole purpose of saying this: LOL!!! What is with the music? And, oh, Catherine's actress...

Two: I have just finished Emily of New Moon, and I really enjoyed it. I've heard there is supposed to be a bit of a divide between Anne people and Emily people, but I don't see why. There are certainly similarities but I think they are two very different animals. Emily was much darker and more realistic than  Anne. I suppose sentiment will always make me an Anne person, but I really like Emily--a lot. And Perry. And Ilse. And he father. And Elizabeth. Not sold on Teddy or Emily/Teddy, but I think that's because we never got to see their meeting and he didn't speak until well after his initial introduction. But I also understand that both the character and his romance with Emily gets more interesting early on in the next book. I will have to read the rest of the series someday, though no time soon. As it is I only read Emily because a friend had let it to me and I have to hang on to lent books for too long. But I definitely plan to finish exploring the world of New Moon.
