Quoting ciko

i would definitely add

 

 

J.D Salinger´s "the catcher in the rye" 

 

 I know that I SHOULD love Catcher in the Rye, but is it ok that I don´t? 

Am I alone in this thought?

 How about: Proud and prejudicial characteristics get one  nowhere in the love stakes, especially if one listen´s to hearsay .  

 

 Phew . . . Elizabeth almost missed out on her destiny . . . the love of a fine figure of a man in breeches.

 

Of course, if you had done your research more thoroughly, you would have also read and watched Bridget Jones´s Diary and realised the modern  moral: Never let a cad twang your big knickers.

 

 

Colin Firth took the role of Darcy in both stories. For those of you who don´t know who he is, he seems to be "the thinking woman´s crumpet".  Something for you to aspire to Thehandsom? 

 

 Actually i ADORE the old version of the movie,i saw it when i was little,and i still love watching it

Just remembering Mrs Bennet making me laugh even when reading the novel  {#lang_emotions_lol}

And that Mr. Darcy was reallyyy something !

i have seen this one too. i personally think it´s the character that you fall in love with. i don´t know what it is about Mr Darcy. He is perceived as a pompus ass but his arrogance is appealing in a weird sort of way....{#lang_emotions_shy}

 Ã dont know too what is it with Mr.Darcy !{#lang_emotions_satisfied_nod}

Maybe because he was a gentleman all the way even with all his arrogance ? {#lang_emotions_confused}

And the commination of such character and a softened heart ...is ÃRRESÝSTÝBLE !{#lang_emotions_shy}
