How did you get introduced to Jane Austen?
Okay. So I started reading P&P when I was about 10, and understandably I couldn't get very far;-) I watched the movie when I was about thirteen and fell in love with it, read P&P and all the other books as soon as I could get my hands on them. I also read a biography of Jane Austen by David Cecil. It was really good and I feel like I know her pretty well now. I would have loved to meet her!!
Soo, you've probably seen them before, but here they are. Three sisters and two brothers.
Ruby and Tom.
-Have you seen Downton Abbey? /Would you like to?
I saw the first episode of Season 2 at a friend's place. I love Lady Violet, detest Lavinia Swire, feel sorry for Matthew and Mary, and can't wait to see the rest of the series!
This. Again. (I know, I know.)
Very good. Review coming up.:-)
-How can you love Les Miserables if everyone dies in it?
Not everyone dies. Two people survive.
These two do. But I love it even though everyone else dies, or maybe even slightly because. Les Mis is the story of a man whose life was changed by God's love. It is the story of "les miserables," the wretched, the poor, the underdogs. It is the story of people fighting for freedom. It's gruesome and terribly sad but it's real life, and even though Victor Hugo killed off people I love, they died for a reason. :-)
"So be it," added Enjolras. "A word more. ... In the future no man shall slay his fellow, the earth shall be radiant, the human race shall love. It will come, citizens, that day when all shall be concord, harmony, light, joy and life; it will come, and it is that it may come that we are going to die."
~Les Miserables, "Saint-Denis," Corinth, chapter eight
What's the best thing about NZ?
The fact that wherever you live in NZ, you're not that far from a beach.
The gorgeous landscapes, native trees, animals and flowers.
No snakes. Except in zoos.
The fact that we have enormous cities not far from rural areas.
Yeeaaahh maybe. If I can avoid floods and droughts and bushfires and snakes and spiders.:-)
What's your favourite thing about Star Wars?
Am I allowed to say everything?
So there you have it! Feel free to ask more questions if you want. I'd also appreciate suggestions for another Authors post in the near future.
