Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
- Christy Turlington, American model
"Coming from a family of sisters and the second-born, I always identified with Elizabeth Bennet. The plight of women and our historically limited freedoms make Austen's spirited characters all the more intriguing and inspiring."
- J.k. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books
"My favorite writer is Jane Austen and I've read all her books so many times I've lost count"
- Stephenie Meyer, Author Twilight series
"Q: You are stranded on a desert island with only one book, one CD, and one DVD--what are they?
A: The CD is easy: Absolution by Muse, hands down. It's harder to give myself just one movie, but the one I watch most frequently is Sense and Sensibility--the one with the screenplay by Emma Thompson. One book is impossible. I'd have to have Pride and Prejudice, but I couldn't live without something by Orson Scott Card and a nice, thick Maeve Binchy, too."
