This book made me decide that I don't like Jane Austen's novels. Except for Pride And Prejudice. That one escapes the tedious preoccupation with "society" by being actually amusing and having likeable and/or interesting characters. I just can't bring myself to care about Persuasion, and spent so much time skimming over boring descriptions of lineages or whatever that I don't even know what the plot was...
