Fun Quiz - Which Austin Heroine Are You?

I am Marianne Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

You are Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are impulsive, romantic, impatient, and perhaps a bit too brutally honest. You enjoy romantic poetry and novels, and play the pianoforte beautifully. To boot, your singing voice is captivating. You feel deeply, and love passionately.

GUYS: take the Which Austin Hero Are You? quiz.

I can't tell you how tickled I am about the results of this quiz.

Kate Winslet is one of my favorite actors. She is gorgeous, intelligent, witty, well-spoken and we share the same middle name. (For the record, both she and Emma Thompson are Eminent Women of Distinction in my book.)

Marianne Dashwood is the character I felt I most identified with the first time I read Sense & Sensibility. It is a sublime novel. (But you know that! If you made it this far, you've read it yourself, or at least seen one of the movie adaptations.)

The description is slightly off the mark on two points:

  • my singing voice sounds like a cross between William Hung's and a cat caught in a blender set to liquify

  • The only thing I can play on the piano is chopsticks

Here's hoping you are delighted with your results! Leave me a comment telling me which one you are.

What a terrific heroine choice!

If this were American Idol (Ooh, I hate myself already for the the comparison with Jane Austin literature.) Simon Cowell would be praising this as a perfect match.
