  5. Death Comes to Pemberley is going to be great and I love that cast. We women love Austen because she is a very important literary figure for us. Women were not allowed to write novels back then. We were repressed, had no rights and were considered chattel. I will stand behind Austen and the Bronte sisters till the end of my days.

    1. Among those lady writers I only respect Emily Bronte because she was a great psychologist as a writer, but Austen was something like Stephenie Meyer today - cheap romance and no depth with silly plots and superficial topics.

  15. They have large shoes to fill making Warcraft. I think the fans may be a bit finicky on how it's done.
