    not yet @mheredge , but I will as soon as I end sense and sensibility, I regret not knowing this author from such a long time, she has very good writing style, may be we should talk more about her books in a TGIF @Lynne

    What is the English book club @Lynne ?
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,636 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Lynne, same question and are we going to read "Sense and Sensibility" in any seasons of English book club? :)

    i am listening it in youtube :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,636 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @phutai you mean audio book?
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,478 mod
    I can add it to the ever-growing list.

    @Luthien - a group of us get together in Second Life ever Monday to read a book. (The whole book.)

    @bubbli yes, i listened to the audio book. But my english level is quite low, so it is really hard for me to accomplish at all.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,636 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @phutai that's great. I will also try listening to the audio book. A pretty new experience for me.

    If you like Jane Austen's books, you will like Vanity Fair (1848) by William M Thackeray. He satirises society in early 19th century Britain following the lives of two women, Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley, along with their friends and family.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I'll be sure to check it out :)

    It's very amusing @elly_m and the characters are very real.

    I read it. But to say honestly, it wasn't very interesting for me. I mean that it is not such kind of book, which i can read twice. This novel story is close to the "Pride and Prejudice". And for me the last one is more exciting

    I can't recall much of the detail of the book @Jenny13, but I do seem to recall having enjoyed it and maybe more than Pride and Prejudice though I don't know why. Maybe I should read it again.

    @Xanthippe @Shiny03 This is how love is entertainment these days. ;)

    “The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!”
    ― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

    Well, she married him eventually:

    "He must have all Edward's virtues, and his person and manners must ornament his goodness with every possible charm."

    @Xanthippe Who? Jane Austen? :)
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,683 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, are you kidding? Elinor of course. My alter ego. ;)
    She married Edward Ferrars.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,636 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe how do you know too much about her? Was she your best friend? :)
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,683 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Bubbly, have you forgotten that this is my name in SL?
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,636 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe I am talking about Jane Austin. :(
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,683 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I see, @Bubbly, but you cited Elinor's words. :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,636 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Xanthippe I thought both Elinor and Jane Austin are same! ;)
