Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Lord have mercy I struggled so much with this book. The only reason I picked it up was at someones suggestion. It really, really isn't my style of writing. I feel like I'm committing some sort of heresy saying this, but I seriously can't stand these type of classics. And why on earth did I feel compelled to read this in a British accent? (Not aloud of course, but in my head.)

Sorry folks, as my husband would say, that's why there's strawberry, chocolate and vanilla.

Recommend: only to those who enjoy classics or Jane Austen

Good for you for giving it a try. Way to persevere! I really enjoyed P&P, but Austen requires more "thinking" than other writers. I have to be in the right mood for it. If you get the itch to try another classic, try Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It is an AMAZING story and not as hard to read as Austen... not even close! I'll bet if you read the first chapter, you'd be hooked. :>)

I really enjoyed this one, but I can understand your feelings. It is not an easy read and it takes more time than a more modern read. You definitely have to be in the right mood.
