>Winter Reading List

Today I finally completed Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I can honestly say that it was one of the most difficult things I have ever done.

To be quite honest, I found myself identifying a whole lot more with Mr. Collins, the bumbling clergyman who pursues the heroine to no avail, than Mr. Darcy, the fabulously wealthy love interest that **spoiler alert** Elizabeth ends up marrying.

I understand how important this book is in terms of woman’s literature, and it is certainly well written, but ultimately a book about a bunch of sisters trying to get married can only deliver just that… which I found impossible to enjoy.
