I found this book full of funny lines, but as discussed at book club this morning, nowhere near as clever as P&P. Also? The ending is really abrupt. Could have used about 3 more chapters.

I marked a ton of things in the book and also on the iPad (yay for free public domain ebooks!), but am not sure I'm really going to type them all in here. I might some day but for now I'll just say I did find it pretty entertaining. And I kind of wanted to punch Mrs. Allen.

10.0% "I'm not very far into it (or as far as I was supposed to be for book club), but so far this seems to me to be one of her really funny books. There's not the going on and on yet like in Sense & Sensibility. We'll see..."
