I finally read it.

I know, right?

While this wasn't my cup of tea I still found it to be a semi-enjoyable read.


Now, I close the book understanding why it's considered one of the must-read classics; all the parts between Darcy and Elizabeth are still electric and captivating even centuries after they were penned (that bitch, Jane Austen, died 200 years ago). I just can't say the same for the rest of the novel, particularly involving the chapters in which Lydia runs off with Wickham; those were incredibly painful for me to slog through.

Would I recommend it? Only as a demonstration of good breeding.
Would I maybe prefer to watch the film adaptation that trims out most of the tedium with only slight sacrifices to character development? Definitely, as my tastes are horrifyingly ill bred.
