I love both of them, but while I don't think Charlotte lacks humour, JA does lack passion in most cases. So if I had to pick on just one, the more CB the better (and with a little teensy bit of JA humour she'd be perfect). I'd rather have that than JA w/ a little bit of Bronte (can't see Mr Darcy banging his head agains the wall)
And CB does have humour: read "Shirley". But she also has a lot of emotional, highly charged moments fot the romantic in me
JANE EYRE RULES!!!!!!!!!!
AND SO DOES SHIRLEY!!!!!!!
P.S. Don't misunderstand, I love P&P.
