it was ok
Read from December 31, 2012 to January 12, 2016

I love all the adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, the story and Elizabeth, Mr. Darcy, Jane and Mr. Bingley but reading the novel was an exercise in patience and persistence.

The writing was so dull and lifeless - all tell and no show - that it was exhausting to read.
