    Sorry, I don't know what came over me.

    I meant to say Battlefield Earth.

    :devil:

    Edgar Wright should take a shot at this, anybody know what he's doing?

    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.

    And that was exactly the point of her novels.

    Congratulations on "getting" Jane. ;)

    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.
