I wish he were my brother

In response to Perfect foil to the boorish Thorpe... Wonder how she came up with Henry..., written by Kathlyn on January 01, 1998 at 20:02:22
] I've been reading the recent JA biographies and wonder how much of Henry Tilney might be patterned after her own brother Henry? By all that I have read of his character, it sounds like there may be a few similarities..
This is just an opinion, but I would like Henry as a brother but not as a prospective husband. I have fallen in love with Darcy, Mr. Knightly and captain Wentworth (I don't like Edward or Edmund so they doesn't count) but much as I like Henry, I simply cannot LOVE him. He lacks passion!
