This is a quick read and fun, though it’s puzzling at times to figure out exactly what you like and dislike about the characters of Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins. They have their distinctly good and bad sides. But considering the social class gap between them and Shaw’s socialist proclivities, that’s the point of the thing.

Overall, I’ve been having a good time filling in the breaches in my reading history during the nearly two years that we’ve been living under COVID restrictions. I wondered about bothering with Pygmalion since I had a good idea what it was about without reading it. But now I’d like to see it staged. I’d also like to give a try to the 1938 film adaptation starring Wendy Hiller and Leslie Howard: https://tinyurl.com/n9kjyam2.
