An overhyped classic you didn't really like
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald- I hope to re-read it sometime and see if maybe my opinion has changed with time.
Favorite time period to read about
Whatever the Pride and Prejudice time period is. ;)
Favorite fairy tale
Hmmm. Good question. I'm partial to Beauty and the Beast but that might be because of the Disney film.
What is the most embarrassing classic you haven't read yet
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Top five classics you'd like to read soon
- Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
- Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
- Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens
- The Importance of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde
- Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Favorite Modern book/series based on a classic
Beauty by Robin McKinley
Favorite movie version /TV-series based on a classic
1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice obviously!!!
Worst classic to movie adaptation
The 2005 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and the 2007 adaptation of Mansfield Park are tied. I've heard the 1999 adaptation of Mansfield Park is pretty bad but I haven't bothered with it.
Favorite editions you'd like to collect more classics from
Hmmm. I don't normally pay attention to additions but let me think. I'd say the Barnes and Noble collectibles are very nice indeed and I'd love to have more of them. :)
An under hyped classic I'd recommend to everyone
I feel like Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey don't get the credit Jane Austen's other novels do so I'd say those two. Also, Our Mutual Friend, Little Dorrit and Hard Times are three Dickens novels I read last year that I don't hear as much about either that are awesome!
