I can't believe it took my until age 39 to read my first Jane Austen. I enjoyed the read even though it wasn't exactly in my wheelhouse for books I usually enjoy. There is literally no plot outside of who is going to marry and fall in love with whom, but the story was a fascinating look into upper...

I finally finished this book! YAY! My goodness, it took me forever to do so. It's as romantic as I had expected but also very difficult to keep track of all the Miss Bennetts. Lindsey Duncan's narration was delightful and she infused it with a lot of emotion.Before reading/listeningI have tried many...

Although I loved reading from an early age, I didn’t usually enjoy the classics we were required to read for school. In my adult years, I’ve mostly avoided them aside from several science fiction and fantasy classics. As a result of a conversation in a thread on another site, I decided to read one...

A bland, tedious, "romance" (couldn't find the romance) novel with a collection of one-dimensional, shallow, irritating characters. PS: The 2005 movie version is better than the book.

Books of 1916: Part One 2016 was a tough year in many ways, so may I introduce you to 1916? I think you’re going to love 1916. I was struck by something I read in a (very nice) review of one of the books of 1916: —“because anything first published in 1916 that does not contain a word or thought ...

I first want to say to anyone thinking about reading this book, or anyone who read it or tried to read it and didn't like it that you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT read this book as a modern reader. When Jane Austen wrote Pride and Prejudice I'm almost certain she didn't expect it to be a classic read even over...

This book took me more than a month to read. The first half was such a struggle for me. Because English isn't my first language, I had some troubles with those (veryyyy) long sentences, that contained words I defenitly didn't learn in school. At about 55 - 60% of the book I started to like it. The r...

I freely admit that there isn’t anything special about the plot and story in Pride & Prejudice, but it’s just so well done that it’s still one of my favourites. Austen brings this ordinary story to life. There’s a liveliness and wit to her dialogue and characters that is hard to equal then or now. ...

I liked this a lot better the second time through. I think I didn't have the patience for it on round one (when, to be fair, I was working in a bush camp in Uganda, and it didn't feel topical).It's justifiably part of the canon, and I doubt I can say much about it save that I liked the shier less br...

My third time to read this book and I absolutely adored it of course. I've been listening to the podcast In Want of a Wife along with it and it's great to have good commentary. I particularly love the last chapter!!
