Aunt Marlene, the biggest influence on my early love of Regency, has many favorite books and she’s back to tell us about another one 🙂
As many others do, I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice. Jane Austen knows how to develop characters and although one must have patience to read her (consider the years in which she wrote) she was truly able to hold my interest. You cannot just skim through P & P……..it is a work of art story-wise. It is almost a study of character written in a love story. Each personality is visible to the mind’s eye. I could be irritated at one while loving the other, and yet she creates understanding for those less loved, (Charlotte) and creates humour with the foolish ones (Mr. Collins, Countess de Burgh) all the while weaving her story through and making her point of view of her times obvious. This should be a read on everyone’s list.
Thanks for visiting and sharing with us, Marlene!
