We're all watching The Complete Jane Austen, right? The classics are totally YA.
I didn't see last week's Persuasion until Friday. While I enjoyed it while I was watching it (I had listened to the book on CD a number of years ago), soon afterwards I was left thinking, "Ah...that was kind of light." There wasn't a whole lot of story there. I don't think I would have been interested without the period setting.
However, there were some extremely interesting technical details in the film.
For instance, I'm sure all Buffistas recognized Anthony Head (Buffy's Giles) who played the pompous ass Sir Walter Elliot. But how many of you noticed Alice Krige as Lady Russell? She was the Borg Queen!!!
You don't get this level of depth at just any litblog, folks.
