Any Jane Austen/Bronte fans?

I admit I cannot read Jane Austin's books. I find them so hard to get into. I did buy this the other day:


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies


Maybe I'll be able to get into her originals after reading it.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Thank you for the explanation on Jane Eyre, Sairis. I'll be honest. I read it pretty quickly the first time because I wanted to know what was going to happen. So, I didn't absorb many of the details as much I would have liked. I'll probably read it again soon and will keep your comments in mind.

Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy = drool. I really love Pride & Prejudice. I realize that my original post sounded more like I was complaining. But wouldn't we all love the happy ending with the handsome rich dude?

And Sairis, I know you've said how you're much more of an introvert, but I hope you don't end up like Lucy. You deserve better than to be in the background. And with a frustratingly ambiguous ending.

And I do love Bronte's juxtaposition of the moral, proper, well-intentioned St. John who is incapable of showing true feeling and is outright cold towards a woman who loves him because she doesn't quite fit with his "higher" goals and the passionate, propriety-be-damned Rochester.
For all of the Jane lovers, there is a modern novel called "Me and Mr. Darcy" that mirrors P & P but with a twist at the end. It's about an NYC twentysomething who goes on a Jane Austen tour in England. It is definitely an enjoying read!!!
I know that this is kind of late, but I LOVE Jane Austen's novels. I hope that you've had the chance to finish that wonderful book Persuasion.Haha, Persuasion happens to be my favorite novel of hers. If you like Austen, I suggest reading some books by an authoress named Catherine Cookson. She writes about the less ornate aspects of life in various eras. Her books are a portrayal of what most people were like... the poor classes usually.
OOoooooo I am!

I love love love Pride and Prejudice (obvious choice I know but the humour in it is brilliant - its such a funny book) and I've never found it difficult to read.

I also love Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights I read them all the time. Mr Rochester is probably my favorite of the men. I adore their love story.
