So, I have several books tied for favorite (SURPRISE!). They are:

I LOVE this book so much! I can read it over and over. It's completely hilarious! Jane Austen's famous "biting wit" is never more apparent than in this book. She plays the part of narrator and dispenses sarcastic anecdotes about all the characters and their experiences. It's completely brilliant.

After I finish this book, I always want to read it ALL over again. The cover looks dorky (not as bad as the cover of MY copy! Which looks like one of those books always for sale for a quarter at Goodwill), but really the "blue castle" in this book is all in the mind of the lead character (it's not some fairy tale story or something)! It is both hilarious, and at times a bit sad. But of course it ends happily!

I'm not at all a fan of "science fiction". But, this book is just plain, brilliant! It's a book you remember long after you read it, but you still want to read it again. I love it!

Also, I'm not a huge fan of "fantasy", but this book. AMAZING. And fascinating. I mean, who knew that demons are so creepily witty! ;-D

I have more favorites OF COURSE, but I'm saving some for later on in the survey!

I love Jane Austen, even though "Northanger Abbey" isn't my favorite of her novels. I agree with you about "The Giver." It's so incredbily sad and shocking that it sticks in your mind for quite a while. And I love "The Screwtape Letters"! C.S. Lewis was a genius and that book is so good. Have you ever read "The Great Divorce"? I like that one even better.

What's your favorite Austen?

Definitely! I especially love listening to The Giver on Audio Book while I work or something.

C.S. Lewis WAS a genius! I haven't! I will most definitely have to check it out though! My friend was telling me about it, just the other day!

My favorite novel by Jane Austen is "Pride and Prejudice," closely followed by "Emma." =)

She and C.S. Lewis are my favorite authors.

Jane Austen FTW! I read "Northanger Abbey" for a book report this year, as well as "Sense and Sensibility." :D
I saw an improv show earlier this month that was done in the style of her books. It was awesome.

I love Jane Austen! I haven't read the book yet but I really want to. It's on my to-read list. C.S. Lewis is brilliant. I have yet to read The Screwtape Letters but I really should, one of these days.

The Blue Castle - that one's on my must always have a copy list!
