    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen started off annoying me and ended up enchanting me Up until about page one hundred I found this book vexing, frivolous and down right tedious I now count myself as a convert to the Austen cult I must confess I have been known to express an antipathy for anything written or set before 1900 I just cannot get down with corsets, outdoor plumbing and buggy rides Whenever someone dips a quill into an inkwell my eyes glaze over This is a shortcoming I readily Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen started off annoying me and ended up enchanting me Up until about page one hundred I found this book vexing, frivolous and down right tedious I now count myself as a convert to the Austen cult I must confess I have been known to express an antipathy for anything written or set before 1900 I just cannot get down with corsets, outdoor plumbing and buggy rides Whenever someone dips a quill into an inkwell my eyes glaze over This is a shortcoming I readily own up to but have no desire to correct So I admit to not starting this book with the highest of hopes I did really enjoy Ang Lee s Sense and Sensibility however and so when my friend threw the gauntlet down I dutifully picked it up.Boy did I hate him at first To get anywhere with this book one has to immerse oneself in the realities of life and marriage in the nineteenth century At first all this talk of entailment and manners just left me cold I liked the language to be sure Austen s dialogue is delightful through out but dialogue alone no matter how delicious does not a great novel make.A hundred pages or so in though I started to see what a shrewd eye for character this Austen woman had Mr Collins was the first person I marvelled at His character springs forth fully formed as a total but somehow loveable ass From that point on I found much to love about this book I was so into it by the end that I was laughing at some characters, sympathizing with others and clucking my tongue at an unhappy few In short I was completely absorbed In conclusion I must now count myself a fan of Miss Austen s novels and not just their fim adaptations and do so look forward to acqauinting myself withof her work in the future Emma anyone

Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy moved into town and immediately Mrs Bennett set her dasterdly plans in motion on behalf of her mortified children She will do whatever necessary to get a rich man to put a ring on it oh Beyonce, your words are applicable in any century A lady s imagination is very rapid it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment. Only, there is a snag in her otherwise flawless plans Elizabeth is not going to roll over to whatever man is thrust her way To her mother s ever living disappointment, Elizabeth has all the spunk and backbone of a truly glorious woman I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine. Truly a great read, no matter the century.Plus Jane Austen is totally my soul sister I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library. Audiobook CommentsAs with most old timey books, It is far easier for me to listen to them than to read them I like hearing the odd phrases and ancient unused words muchthan struggling through the hard copy I really enjoyed this audiobook and the narrator did a fab job of characterization The 2018 ABC Challenge PYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads Happy Reading
