I've bought two Jane Austen books (P&P and Emma) after seeing two pages of Pride And Prejudice in a video. I've not previously been all that interested, since it seemed to be just-another-romance. But seeing the words that she wrote instead of a film from it, it struck me. There's something special about what a real writer can do with words which just stands apart from anything the story is or isn't. Each sentence is just an amazing little... construction.
