Read in November, 2007

Beyond Chapter 3 bookgroup read for November 2007. I am a philistine as I am not enamoured of the classics. Perhaps because the language is so formal, perhaps because the class struggle is so far removed from my life.

I just couldn't get into this book. I found Darcy pompous and overbearing. What gave him the right to tear Jane and Bingley apart, simply because he didn't think Jane was interested enough. He should have been glad she wasn't falling all over Bingley for his money.

Anyway, it's another one that I can cross off the list of 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die.
