I had been meaning to read this book for ages, and in fact, started a few times, but couldn't get into it. This time I decided to perservere and am glad I did, I can understand why people like this book, though I wouldn't put it as one of my favourites.

Since I realized I have already read this one, I am sending it to crimson-tide with a bookring. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Despite already having released two copies of this book, and it always coming up in the lists of 'best loved' books or 'books you must read' - I have never actually read it!! Perhaps it will be third time lucky?
Thank you so much frangipani08.

From Amazon.com:
"Elizabeth Bennet is the perfect Austen heroine: intelligent, generous, sensible, incapable of jealousy or any other major sin. That makes her sound like an insufferable goody-goody, but the truth is she's a completely hip character, who if provoked is not above skewering her antagonist with a piece of her exceptionally sharp -- but always polite -- 18th century wit. The point is, you spend the whole book absolutely fixated on the critical question: will Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy hook up?"

Journal Entry 9 by wingcrimson-tidewing at Balingup, Western Australia Australia on Sunday, April 14, 2019
'All's well that ends well' is the crux of this one, with of course a rocky path to traverse in the getting there. Elizabeth Bennett is certainly an unforgettable character, although how she emanated from two such gormless parents is anyone's guess!

Austen has in fact given us a whole stable of memorable characters, presented in her witty, semi-satirical style. It's the interactions between them all which if course make the book.
