My favourites are P&P and Northanger Abbey. I like all of them so don't really have a least favourite but I suppose it would be Emma if pushed.

Persuasion is my favourite because I love the heroine, she's so unlike the rest.

I've never read P and P because I found it cliched (Even though it was the book that was the original) so probably that or Mansfield Park as my least favourite

Perhaps I'm on my own, but I don't really understand her appeal.

Aren't her books a bit conservative?

I love Jane Austen. My favourite of her novels is Persuasion (although I also love Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, so it's a tough call) because it's the most mature of Austen's works, and because Captain Wentworth's letter to Anne is one of the most beautiful things I've ever read.

My least favourite is Northanger Abbey because Catherine's so irritating and Henry's so patronising.

Only read 2 in whole, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey. I like them though.

Tried and failed to read P&P and S&S several times, just too boring..
