This is my favorite Austen novel. It always makes me happy to see other people enjoy it too. :D

Pride & Prejudice is still my favourite (so far), but this was a lot of fun.
Oh, I'm glad you liked it. I've just started a "reread" via the Anna Massey audio ... it's such fun to watch Austen making fun of Catherine -- and of the silliness of the gothic heroines Catherine is trying to emulate, against her own unavowed better judgment.

Yes, part of the fun is that Catherine knows it's silly but can't help herself. Some of it is a little over the top, but it was a lot of fun overall.
