I love Jane Austen's work. I love the escape into her stories and imagine myself the daughter of a gentleman, obsessed with balls and finding a husband. The beautiful thing is that her themes and plots are timeless. I can relate to all of the characters at some level (yes, even Mr. Collins and Mr. Willoughby) and thoroughly enjoy Austen's unique sense of humor.
For those of you not quite convinced, who perhaps prefer more modern means of social networking, I give you Pride and Prejudice, Facebook style.
