I finished Eligible, a modern Pride & Prejudice, a few days ago for book club tonight. It took me a little time to come up with an Austen quiz I haven’t done before. I’m giving you the ages that we first met these Austen characters. Just tell who the characters are!
No Googling or looking at other commenter answers. Yes, we’re going by the honor system Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome 🙂 It only takes once to be eligible for a prize.
Leave your guesses as a comment. Good luck!!
First column are the girls, the second the boys/men. Such a difference in ages!
Your choices-Emma Woodhouse & George Knightley (Emma), Fanny Price & Edmund Bertram (MP), Elinor Dashwood, Marianne Dashwood & Colonel Brandon (S&S), Catherine Morland & Henry Tilney (NA), Elizabeth Bennett & Fitzwilliam Darcy (P&P), Anne Elliot (Persuasion)
10-Fanny Price 16-Edmund Bertram
16-Marianne Dashwood 26-Henry Tilney
17-Catherine Morland 28-Fitzwilliam Darcy
19-Elinor Dashwood 35-Colonel Brandon
20-Elizabeth Bennett 37-George Knightley

Hope I have them right! It’s hard when I’ve seen so many movie adaptations and then distinguishing ages between those and the ages in the books. 😉
You got half right 🙂 It’s hard because they are all so close in age!
Thank goodness for the choices. If I had to remember all the characters, this would have been impossible. Unfortunately, I have most of the girls frozen at 19 and the boys/men at 27. By the way, I have not yet read Eligible; did you like it?
Yes, the book group as a whole liked it more than I did. Hope to get my thoughts up this week.
I’ve only read one Austen book so wouldn’t even know where to start!
It tough 🙂
I am probably too late, but here it goes
Emma & George, 20,37
Fanny & Edmund 10 & 16
Elinor Dashwood 19
Marianne & Colonel 16,35
Catherine & Henry 17, 28
Elizabeth & Darcy 20,28
120 perfect Austen points!
