] I have read Shirley, I just didn't realise it was supposed to be funny. It may be that CB's sense of humour doesn't suit mine. Oh well.
That's why there are so many different authors. Life would be pretty dull if everyone agreed. But I do find some scenes (esp. the teen (forgot his name) boy's (the one that helps Caroline) views on females, funny. And I find rev. Helstone quite amusing. Maybe my view of the world coinsides more with CB's than JA's. But then, Emily Bronte is quite another matter: "Wuthering Heights" would be the last book I would take on a desert island

LOL! Very well put. But I see CB as more of Sense and Tears. (Though JA is definitely NOT Sensibility and Laughter.
