What an incredible mess she made!! I swear there were times I really wanted to kill Miss Woodhouse but that would've dragged the entire book to a premature end.

It's a nice and sometimes funny book, once my murder rage passed and I was able to survive to pages and pages of babbling (particularly whem Miss Bates appears), you realize this book is great contribution to literature by Jane Austen ; not my favorite Austen though.

I have read different comments about the movie (with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeremy Northam) and I'm going to watch it so I can compare it to the actual book.
