Jane Austen

Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors. Her books have inspired incredible screen versions. Fortunately, for us Austen fans, PBS is featuring her films on Masterpiece Theater. Hooray!! Sunday's movie was Persuasion.


I've never seen previous versions of the film, nor read the book, but I do have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Next week is Northanger Abbey. My goal is to read the book before Sunday, so that I can watch the movie and compare how closely it follows. For those of you who want to watch, check your local listings for Masterpiece on PBS Sunday nights! More updates to come as the Complete Jane Austen on PBS continues!
