I've finally finished it! Wow. It only took me a few weeks. It was a lot longer than I thought it was.

I knew what was going to happen because I've seen the BBC miniseries on it, which was why I was interested in it in the first place. If I didn't know how the story was going to go, it would have taken me EVEN LONGER to finish.

Personal opinion, Mr. Thornton knocks the socks off of Mr. Darcy. Margaret is a little hard to like in the beginning, but she's better in the second half. I really enjoyed getting into her--and Mr. Thornton's--head. The BBC miniseries had issues conveying what they were thinking and I really liked seeing why they act the way they do.
