    6.0 stars Confessionthis book gave me an earth shattering Janeaustegasm and I am feeling a bit spent and vulnerable at the moment, so please bear with me You see, I decided I wanted to get literated by reading the classicals in between my steady flow of science fiction, mystery and horror The question was where to begin.After sherlocking through my Easton Press collection, I started by pulling out my Dickens and reading A Tale of Two Cities which I thought was jaw dropping AMAZO and left me feeling warm, satisfied and content It also made me made retrospectively pleased that I named my youngest daughter Sydney.After Two City Tale ing, I decided to give this book a whirl as I kept seeing it on GR lists of goodest books ever However, I must admit I was hesitant going in to this for two big reasons One, I thought it might be a bit too romantical for me The second, and much distressing, reason was that Twilight was on many of the same lists as this book Austen fans should pull a nutty over that one.So needless to say I went into this thinking I might hate it Well, for the 999,987th time in my life at least according to my wife s records I was wrong I absolutely loved this book and had a mammoth, raging heart on for it from the opening scene at the breakfast table when Father Witty Mr Bennet is giving sly sarcasm to Mrs Mommie Put Upon I literaphorically could not get enough of this story I was instantly captivated by the characters and Elizabeth Bennet, the main protagonist, immediately became one of my all time favorite characters Mr Darcy joined that party as soon as he showed up in the narrative as I thought he was terrific as well.Overall, the writing could not have been better It was descriptive, lush and brilliant The story could not have been engaging or intelligent and the characters could not have been magnificentastic Elizabeth and Fitz are both smart, witty, self confident and good Austen could not have written them better Oh, and I am sorry if this is a bit of a minor spoiler but I need to add that George Wickham is a cock blocking braggadouche of startling proportions I needed to say that and now I feel better This one has made it onto my list of All Time Favorite novels and is truly one of the classics that lives up to its billing A FINAL WORD TO THE GUYS Guys, do not fear the Austenembrace the AustenHIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION

    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 with of her work in the future Emma anyone

    NOTE The review you are about to read was written in 2009 2009 That s over 10 years ago I was 17 and thought I was the smartest person ever In all honesty, I barely remember this book So, negative comments regarding my intelligence are no longer necessary They will be ignored As they have been for probably 7 years now CARRY ON P.S Can we all just LOL at my use of the words mind numbing balls HA This book is quite possibly the most insipid novel I have ever read in my life Why this book is so highly treasured by society is beyond me It is 345 pages of nothing The characters are like wispy shadows of something that could be interesting, the language that could be beautiful ends up becoming difficult to decipher and lead me than once to skip over entire paragraphs because I became tired of having to stumble through them only to emerge unsatisfied, and the plot is non existent, as though Austen one day decided she wanted to write a novel and began without having any idea what would happen except that there would be a boy and a girl who seemingly didn t like each other but in the end got married The story really probably could have been told in about 8 pages, but Austen makes us slog through 345 pages of mind numbing balls and dinner parties I don t care what anyone says, this is not great literature This is a snore.Read my review of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

    Where my massive crush on Jane Austen began alone, on a hot day in Montana, cursing her name.I had to read it for AP English and I could not see the point Girls need to marry Girls can t get married Girls are sad Girls get married Girls are happy.I went to school to half heartedly discuss it and waffled and wavered in an effort to please my teacher Finally she said was it good or not, Ben No it wasn t Thank younow read this twenty pages of literary criticism for homework Twenty pages of literary criticism later, I was hooked Once you know what to look for, it s hilarious Once you re keyed into the contextual life of women, you have to feel for the plight of the Bennet sisters, and laugh at the crudity of their mother and Mr Collins.So yes I m a guy and I love Jane Austen You got a problem with that Huh Huh Do you Huh Well if you do, I ll be over here nursing my dorkiness just waiting for a fight for the honor of my beloved Jane.

    I was forced to read this by my future wife.I was not, however, forced to give it 5 stars.

    I finally did it And I loved it

    that was glorious

    To summarize Mister Darcy cue the long, sustained high pitched squealing This was truly as glorious as I remember Every time I reread this novel, I love it The romance , the high society , the witty banter. Gah I just adore it all And your defect is to hate everybody And yours, he replied with a smile, is willfully to misunderstand them Elizabeth Bennet second eldest of the five Bennet sisters is the one with a clear, level head Jane is the beautiful one, Mary is the look at me I m so pious one, Lydia is the I m so dumb that I m probably going to get murdered one and Kitty is the well she s just kinda there one Now, back in the daythere was one, singular goal for all women above the age of 16 GET YOURSELF A MAN before you reach 25 and become a SPINSTER cue high society ladies fainting Mrs Bennet their mother has taken this so completely to heart that she thinks of nothing else After all, It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. 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 much than 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

    Well loathed books I ve re readRating 4 very annoyed, crow feathered stars out of fiveThe Book Report No Seriously If your first language isn t English, or if you re like nine years old, you might not know the story Note use of conditional My Review All right All right, dammit I re read the bloody thing I gave it two stars before I was wrong headed and obtuse and testosterone poisoned I refuse to give it five stars, though Look, I ve admitted I was wrong about how beautiful the writing is, and how amusing the story is Don t push.Stephen Sullivan, who rated this with six stars of five, is now on a summer travel break from Goodreads, so I can publish this admission He was right It is a wonderful book I had to grow into it, much as I had to grow into my love for Mrs Dalloway But now that I m here, I am a full on fan.Deft is a word that seems to have been created for Austen She writes deftly, she creates scenes deftly She isn t, despite being prolix to a fault, at all heavy handed or nineteenth century ish in her long, long, long descriptions She is the anti Dickens Nothing slapdash or gimcrack or brummagem about her prose, oh nay nay nay Words are deployed, not flung or splodged or simply wasted The long, long, long sentences and paragraphs aren t meant to be speed read, which is what most of us do now They are meant to be savored, to be treated like Louis XIII cognac served in a cut crystal snifter after a simple sole meuni re served with haricots verts and a perfect ripe peach for dessert.The romantic elements seem, at first blush, a wee tidge trite And they are Now Why are they Because, when Miss Jane first used them in Pride and Prejudice, they worked brilliantly and they continue so to do unto this good day Why Because these are real feelings expressed in a real, genuine, heartfelt way, as constrained by the customs of the country and times And isn t that, in the end, what makes reading books so delicious I, a fat mean old man with no redeeming graces, a true ignorant lower class lout of the twenty first century, am in full contact with the mind, the heart, the emotional core of a lady of slender means born during the reign of George III.You tell me what, on the surface of this earth, is astonishing, astounding, miraculous than that Jane Austen and I Had A Moment She s Had A Moment with literally millions of English speakers for over 200 years She s had moments with non English speakers for than a century Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are cultural furniture for a large percentage of the seven billion people on the planet Large here is a relative term Less than one Still amazing for a book 200 years old Reading is traveling in time, in space, but most importantly inside Inside yourself, inside the characters emotions, inside the author s head and heart It is a voyage of discovery, whether you re reading some bizarro mess, Dan Brown s mess, religious tracts, Twilight, whatever You the reader are going somewhere in a intimate contact than you the reader have with any other being on the planet Movies, TV, sex, none of them take you as deep into the essence of feeling and emotion as reading does And no, snobs, it does NOT matter if it s well written, it matters that the book speaks to the reader Sometimes, of course, what one learns is how very shallow and vapid some people areI m lookin at you, Ms Fifty Shades So I thank that rotten, stinkin Stephen the absent Sullivan, safe in the knowledge he won t see me admitting this, for reminding me to live up to my own goal of remaining open to change I heard him yodeling his rapture, and I revisited the book, and I learned something valuable Only admit you re wrong when the person you don t want to embarrass yourself in front of isn t around to see This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
