      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

Do men enjoy Austen Novels as much as women?

Recommended Posts

...and another man who likes Jane Austen. Not long finished Pride & Prejudice and will certainly read another this year.

 

...and I do like beer, football, Top Gear etc. too :irked:

Just read Persuasion. Not quite as good as P&P, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Hmm, I at least know one man who appreciates her books. He is my history teacher and often quotes her as well as using scenes from her novels to represent class division when we're discussing aristocracy. I was personally talking to him today about Oscar Wilde and he mentioned Austen as being "second to none" when it comes to writing in beautiful English.

 

He's tall, over 40 years old with a beard. Also looks pretty manly to me. :)

I have read all six of her novels. I have not read Lady Susan. I liked Pride and Prejudice and Emma the most. The others i did not think as good. All the same, I do not think men enjoy her books as much as women. I thought The History of Tom Jones was a better book than any of Austen's.
