I've never read any of those...I want to read Pride and Prejudice though. Does Robinson Crusoe count as a different classic English novel?

The only one I've read of those is Jane Eyre, so I did that. I liked it, too.

Those are like all my favorite books. Laughing I can't pick. Dickens, Austen, and Bronte are 3 of my favorite authors.

You raise me up to more than I can be.

I'm not sure what my favorite would be, but I picked "other" because I think I liked Emma better than any of those I read. (The only ones listed that I've read so far are David Copperfield, Sense and Sensibility and Jane Eyre, my favorite of those being Sense and Sensibility.) I DO plan on reading Pride and Prejudice eventually, though. Is Murder on the Orient Express British? I liked that one. And I'm sure I've read others, but I'm not sure what else right now, at least not that I liked.

Oh boy, I feel uncultured now. I've never read any of them. Sad I started to read Tale of Two Cities and Emma for school, but I couldn't get through them. I'll have to finish them someday.
I'm just not cut out to be a classic English literature lover.

You rock.

Nick!! Mark Twain is an American you dork!
Laughing You did know that right?

I would have to list Lord of the Flies or A Tale of Two Cities for me. There are too many from which to choose!

Yes,it is rather sad that the gold mine of classic English literature is so little known.I am sure that if it was better known more people would read it.

Well,I do not think that is neccesarily true,because many people would find those books boring even if they knew about them.I do like them,but many would not,under any circumstances.
