January 03, 2009, 07:59 PM
It is time for a Jane Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, to be read in Jo's Book Nook, our non-Harry Potter book club over on the Leaky Lounge forums. Opening today, our book club is open to all who wish to take part in a discussion, examination, and group reading with their fellow Lounge members. Many topics regarding the story and the author are set to be featured during this reading, so do not delay in joining. To take part in the reading of Sense and Sensibility, click here. For those who do not yet have the novel, our own Cauldron Shop has a copy waiting for you.
I love Alan Rickman in the film version. He transends the ages with that voice! Whats cool is you get to see him with sandy blonde hair and green eyes instead of the greasy black hair and dark eyes. LOL! He is without a doubt my favorite actor. Great book too, by the way!
Again, in agreement on Mr Rickman. I just finished the movie, again, and he is a fine actor. We just all need to remember that ’Jo’s Book Nook’ is about the BOOK, not the movie! LOL, It’s a great read, and I can’t wait! :D
I love the Thompson-Rickman interpretation of it, but when I started reading the actual book it struck me with boredom. Great novels in it’s time, but it’s a style and theme that is completely outdated.and once you read one Jane Austen y’ve read them all:
Girl needs man,
girl rejects mr.Right,
girl fancies mr.Wrong,
girl accepts mr.Right,
end of story
Confederate Lady, you’re right discussion is mainly about the book but we also discuss movie interpretations and comparisons with the books, we have quizzes, discussions about Jane Austen’s influence on JKR’s work, etc so hopefully we have something for everyone.
