I enjoy Jane Austen's books that have been made into movies, but I have not read any of them, just watched them. I enjoy them, but some of it seems so wacko to me, like the mother in Pride and Prejudice! Anyway, if you like Victorian Era movies, but can't handle the silliness of Austen, you should try Jane Eyre. I think you will like it. Plus, when he smiles, it makes my heart pitter patter!
