Favorite Jane Austen Novel?

There are plenty of answers to this question on Jane Austen threads all over the web, however, most of them belong to adults. I'm very curious as to what my peers' favorite Jane Austen novels are. Not many teens like Jane Austen, which is sad, because she's written six pieces of perfect literature. Well, that's my opinion. If they were really bad, they wouldn't be over 200 years old and still as popular as ever. 
So, what is your favorite Jane Austen novel, and why?
Mine is Northanger Abbey, because I love Catherine Morland. I relate to her the most out of all of the Austen heroines. I also love how it's basically a parody of a true gothic novel. Oh, and of course, Mr. Tilney is my favorite Austen hero, next to Mr. Darcy, like he should be. ;) The 2007 movie adaption is my favorite, and not just because JJ Feild as Henry Tilney is delsh.

You know, I LOVE the concept of Persuasion but (though it's been a few years since I read it) I didn't love the book.  Pride and Prejudice is a lovely one despite some of the cheesy parts - though Mr. Darcy isn't my favorite in comparison to, say, Mr. Knightley. I love Mr. Knightley.
I am in dire need of reading Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park though, I confess.

Oh, I agree with you on Persuasion. I love the films and TV adaptions, but it's not my favorite. I also have to agree with you on Mr. Knightley, he is my third favorite! I still love Darcy, though. ;) I can't help it. Pride and Prejudice is very good, it's probably my second favorite, and Emma is my third favorite. Mansfield Park is very good, I enjoyed it, but not as much as the others, and Sense and Sensibility is also very good, but still not one of my favorites. They're both good reads, along with Northanger Abbey (which, as you know, is my favorite)! After you've read Northanger Abbey, which is very short, watch the 2007 adaption, because it is perfect! :D JJ Feild, who plays the good-humored and very well-meaning Mr. Tilney, was also in a recent movie called "Austenland," which I think you would enjoy. It's based on the book of the same name.

My very favorite Jane Austen novel would have to be Pride and Prejudice. The words of the story just seem to physically drip with wit and snarkiness. Plus, I really like the movie adaptation with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfayden; I felt like they really were Elizabeth and Darcy.  
Next in line would have to be Persuasion and Mansfield Park. Then Northanger Abbey, followed by Sense and Sensibility and then Emma. Not that I don't like any of them--I love all of them! I just love some more than others, haha :P

I absolutely love Persuasion and Sense and Sensibility, but Pride and Prejudice is realy my all time favorite, especially the Colin Firth version from A and E. I'm currently reading the book and it is AMAZING.

My favorite Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice, followed by PersuasionEmma, and Sense and SensibilityMansfield Park was not so interesting to me, and it's been a long time since I read Northanger Abbey.  I watched a movie version of Emma, but I didn't really like it... it wasn't terribly accurate with the book.
