really liked it
bookshelves: classics

To make matters easier on myself, I texted my friend, Alex, who I was buddy reading this with, at around page 60 and said, “Okay, but genuine question, why does everyone like Darcy in the beginning? Like everyone is trying to get his attention, but he’s so standoffish.” She then proceeded to send me about an eleven-paragraph explanation, which was not only amazing, but also vastly improved my understanding and willingness to read this. So thank you for that, Alex!

And in the most surprising turn of events, I liked this? Like, truly, once I finally figured out what the hell was going on with Darcy, it was really easy to get into and get lost in. Yes, it still took me a little over a week to read, but I’m coming away from it actually having enjoyed it. So I guess I won’t be avoiding Austen anymore.
