I simply adore Jane. I don't have a crush on her but I love her anyway lol She's level-headed, she's sweet, she's thoughtful, and she's a stablizing influence on her naughty sisters heeh I love the way she guides and nutures without overpowering you. I don't usually like the goody-goody characters but Jane is wonderful, especially as she is portrayed in the Colin Firth version of P&P by Susannah Harker. In fact, Harker is just how I imagined Jane lol (see picture below)
Okay the first character I will spotlight this week is Jane Bennett-Bingley from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Yes I know, everyone loves, loves, LOVES Elizabeth Bennett but in all honesty, I cannot stand her. She takes the term self-involved to new heights. I know that's part of the story but she never really recovers from it. If you think about it, Darcy does all the changing and growing in that relationship. But I digress ... lol
Okay enough with the Harker fan girl stuff lol Jane is just awesome. I wish Austen would have done a book that circulated around her, rather than "Lizzie" (I am blashpheming I know lol).
