Finally! It’s taken me FORFREAKINEVER to finish this book. I’ve started and stopped a few times over the years (I even tried to read it side by side with P&P&Zombies, and that was a bust, too) and don’t ask me why, but last month I decided to try again. Something along the lines of gee, my life has changed so dramatically, maybe now I’ll like Jane Austen (this was also around the time I started Don Quixote as well…life changes and classics might not be such a hot idea). And at first I was all “you know, people might be right about Austen being The Shit, because this is kind of amusing” and then Mr. Bennett’s brief cameos got even briefer and suddenly I was all “gawd, this is boring.” BUT. I decided to persevere, because dammit, I was going to finish me an Austen if it was the last thing I did this summer. Okay, not really, but I did want to say I gave her an honest chance and then cross her off of the list. And I am calling it an honest chance, even if I might’ve zoned out towards the end.
So yeah. Read it, still not a fan. And not gonna watch the movies/mini-series (mostly because I have no tv, but also because I don’t find sideburns sexy).
In fact, I much prefer this version (panel 7 is my favorite). I think it does such a great job summarizing everything that there’s no need for me to continue with this post.
