This wouldn't be TrekBBS without the Captain Robert April or TheMasterOfOrion type of post, now would it?

I wasn't too happy with the book but I'm actually looking forward to the movie. I think this is one of those that'll translate well on screen.

No kidding. I always do a double-take whenever I hear someone cite Austen for realistic characters. The hero and heroine are the only characters who exhibit any dimensionality (and even then, not much). Most everybody else can be defined by a single term, an adjective attached to a name--'bookish', 'flighty', 'air-headed', 'pedantic'--and who never stray in thought, speech or behaviour from the one feature that, one realizes, defines the totality of their being. Her books are populated not by characters, but caricatures.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
And that was exactly the point of her novels.

Congratulations on "getting" Jane.

Re: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

What is it with Austen fans and the tendency to refer to the author on a first name basis? Makes even academics sound like housewives gossiping about celebrities at the grocery checkout.

And if you're going to write bad literature, at least have the decency to make it brief. Fucking Mansfield Park just went on and on and on...

Meanwhile, I can't believe we've had an Austen thread and I forgot to post this, the best version of Pride and Prejudice ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQLhIWnpM6M

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

This I actually agree with. I didn't finish Sense and Sensibility either, and only got a few chapters into Emma. The rest of her books, however, are much better paced.

Just Google her. We can't be expected to do all your work. No way your tutor will have TurnItIn. However, I applaud your student credentials. Nobody worth the name would have started it before now.

Just use Wikipedia. Your instructor will never think to check.
