Three great love stories that started it all…

Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights are three of the greatest novels in English literature. Now joining them is Pride, Prejudice and Popcorn, a decidedly different take on these classics. You will laugh with delight as you learn:

— The importance of thoroughly investigating your employers before accepting a job at their isolated, creepy house (Jane Eyre)
— The sad fact that not every bad boy has a heart of gold (Wuthering Heights)
— How to make a proper proposal—and how not to. Hint: don't insult your beloved while attempting to talk her into marriage! (Pride and Prejudice)

Join blogger and romance aficionado Carrie Sessarego (smartbitchestrashybooks.com) as she takes us to the movies with Jane and Liz and Cathy. In her own unique, hilarious style she discusses the books and the various movie and TV adaptations. Your living room will be graced by heartthrobs like Timothy Dalton (twice!), Colin Firth (he shows up twice, too!), Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy.

Whether you are in the mood for serious academic discussion or lighthearted snark, whether you prefer Regency romance or Gothic passion, and whether you prefer your love stories on the screen or on the page, this book has something for you.

Yes, if you love (even if you don't) Jane Austen, Emily Bronte and Charlotte Bronte, and their famous novels, you'll enjoy the humor and pathos of Carrie Sessarego's guide to the work of these groundbreaking women across the media offerings from their time to ours. Each book featured --- Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights --- is covered not only as book but also big picture, adaptations and final scorecard. As an example of the synthesis of comparisons and contrasts, the guide book notes that they all lived happily ever after (unless they were in Wuthering Heights). You'll live more happily after reading this book!
