] Mr. Knightly, although in my second favorite JA novel, is my favorite JA male character.
Why do you like Mr Knightly over Captain Wentworth?
IMHO Knightly is wonderful, but he would be like living wih your father who corrects you all the time. Even the fact that he is lovingly correcting would be a pain. I couldn't live with someone who has so few faults.... I would constantly feel guilty. Capt. W. seems so much more human than Knightly.
