Jane Austen Birthday Week (Between The Covers) Tag

Note: I meant to publish this during Between the Covers's Jane Austen Birthday Week but was unable to. Sorry for the delay.

Evajoy at Between the Covers has a Jane Austen tag for her Jane Austen Birthday Week! And here's another one of her lovely scrapbook pages!
What is your favorite Jane Austen novel?
Definitely Pride and Prejudice! It was the first Jane Austen book that I've read, and I greatly enjoyed it.
Who is your favorite character in that novel?  
In case you couldn't tell by my blog name, Elizabeth Bennet. In all the books that I have read, I've never related to a character as much as I related to Lizzy.
Who is your least favorite character?  
In Pride and Prejudice? Either Wickham or Lydia. Wickham was a scoundrel who lied about Mr. Darcy to make himself look better (not cool!); Lydia was just always annoying and oblivious.
How would you feel if Emma married Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax married Mr. Knightly? 
No! Frank brought out some of the worst qualities in Emma (making fun of Miss Bates, speculating about Jane Fairfax, etc.). And Mr. Knightley said himself that Jane was too reserved for him. No, Emma and Mr. Knightley are meant for each other! (Not too sure about Frank Churchill and Jane Fairfax; I do feel sorry for Jane with all that she had to go through with Frank)
How recently have you read this novel?  
Pride and Prejudice? I've read it about four (?) years ago. I usually don't reread books that I've already have read, but maybe one day I will reread all of Jane Austen's books. But as of now, I have too many books that I want to read.
Would you change something about this novel?  
For Pride and Prejudice, absolutely nothing! It's perfect the way it is!
Last question – What’s your favorite movie version of this novel?
Definitely the 1995 miniseries. It is the closest to the book. I've seen the 1981 miniseries, a couple of scenes from the 1940 movie, and about half of the 2005 movie: the 1981 miniseries didn't get a lot of the characters right and came across as too dull; the 1940s movie had the wrong feel to it; the 2005 movie just isn't Pride and Prejudice -- too many parts were changed.

 God Bless,
 God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet

  1. Thanks for doing my tag! I loved your answers although most of them were predictable (I know you love P and P). I love rereading books especially Jane Austen's novels.

    Cheers and happy holidays!
