    "What a supervly featured room and what exellent boiled potatoes. Many years since I tasted such an exemplary vegetable. To which of my fair cousins may I attribute the exellence of the cooking?"

    "Mr. Collins, we are quite able to keep a cook."

    "Good. I am glad the estate can afford such a living."

    I haven't read the whole book yet. Who is your favorite character?
    Who is your least favorite? Which version do you like best?

    Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy for SURE, and the film with Keira Knightly.

    I don't really have a least favourite character, they're all exceptional in their own ways.

    Quote:He is totally ADHD. Compulsive talker, he can't shut his mouth and it gets him into a bit of grief. He insults by accident with his big mouth lol. Otherwise, he's an alright fellow.

    Do you watch any of Jane Austen movies or read any other of her books?

    I actually just finished watching this about an hour ago. But I've seen it at least a dozen times already. Love it. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yup, in fact just a couple months ago I finished reading a biography of Jane Austen called Becoming Jane Austen (not to be confused with the film, which is AWESOME, it was the basis for the film but it is a proper biography).
