  1. Yes. I think Pride and Prejudice is a milestone novel in so many ways. I confess that I have not actually read the entire novel, but have watched all of the various movies and adaptations and that first line – amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It is one of her best, although I actually feel more partial to Emma. I’ve yet to see the adaptation with Colin Firth, which I heard is quite good, particularly because of Mr. Firth ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. For me personally? No. I’ve tried to read it several times and found I just couldn’t get through it. I even tried reading Pride & Prejudice and Zombies and I still couldn’t read the thing ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sure it’s a great book, just not my cup of tea … either that or I’m just an uneducated snob with bad taste who doesn’t like literature ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. You are definitely not the latter, Dave! I do find it funny that you couldn’t even get through P&P and Zombies, although I haven’t tried that one. Austen, or rather that particular type novel, isn’t for everyone. I know there’s a lot of great books out there that aren’t my cup of tea, but I don’t mind as long as I can get my hands on the books that I do like to read ๐Ÿ™‚
