Young enough to never read Wuthering Heights? No, thank goodness

The holonovel that Janeway was participating in was a gothic novel along the lines of one of the Bronte sisters. They were written in the Victorian era and influenced by Romanticism. Jane Austen is a product of the Napoleonic and Georgian eras. It was much more austere. Though her books are still lively as Miss Lemon and teacake have stated. For the record I think Janeway would be a fan of both. Indeed the above article about Mulgrew in Italy shows her interest in both(all four) authors. I also feel that Jane Austen is more difficult to recreate faithfully, maybe why we only saw Janeway in a gothic holonovel.
Perhaps the dodgy Romantic novel - which Austen satirised - is more appropriate to Voyager, with its regular forays into bathos and melodrama.

Re: Did Janeway finish her Jane Austin Holonovel?

Didn't Capt Katie suddenly get distracted by Maestro DaVinci and drop the Austen like a bad date? Fickle thing. Mind you, I did find all that brooding bodice stuff a bit tedious. Might have been fun with Q in though

Oh I agree there. Northanger Abbey was always my favorite Austen. Just the reactions of the Trek folk when confronted by the mores of centuries past in holo characters makes the whole thing more of a satire.

Northanger Abbey is a hoot.

But my favourite Austen is Persuasion. I've a crush on Anne Elliot.

I still have my copy of Wuthering Heights I borrowed from my high school library 5000 years ago.
You probably have library fines older than the great pyramids.

My copy of the Jane Austin book Club is out of Sync.

Nice movie though.

This is like the plumber who never fixes his own toilet.

I never returned Wuthering Heights because it had writing in it from one of my favorite teachers who was also the librarian. She died some years back and the book had sentimental meaning for me. I never actually liked Wuthering Heights though every time it comes up in forum land I think I should try it out again.

Re: Did Janeway finish her Jane Austin Holonovel?

A new movie came out a few months ago.

It's a broody little bastard.

You can feel a chill from the moor's emanating off your telly.

Or there are books on tape.

Or you could get a celebrity impersonator of your current crush to read the book to you dressed in almost nothing.

So they tell you "the reader of your audio book is dressed in almost nothing.." and let your imagination run away?

Re: Did Janeway finish her Jane Austin Holonovel?

not really.

It's just there's two sorts of people who will do most anything for 50 bucks.

Those you really want to see naked and those you really really don't.

It's about getting your value for money.

Re: Did Janeway finish her Jane Austin Holonovel?

Kate Winslet's middle aged puppies on the loose and it's still an awful movie.

What are the odds of that?

How was the book?

I've never understood why people love this book. Heathcliff just seemed like an ass to me, a what's the point of a romance novel without a likeable leading man?

Even women like a fixerupper.

Think of the challenge?

Pull him down and build up something hollow and callow who does what he's told.
