It took me an entire semester, but I did it. It really shouldn’t have taken that long, don’t get intimidated, I just had a lot to do with the semester. I am honestly very impressed with the movies, some of the dialogue is straight from the book. What I really loved though was how amazing Elizabeth is. She is incredibly dynamic, you watch her grow constantly. It is a very beautiful story, but what makes that so amazing is that it is not about getting swept off your feet with silly romantic love, but about the type of love that can grow even from such barren circumstances as her despising him. I’m honestly not well read enough to know, but I do believe Austen was way before her time in how she ended the book (No, I don’t mean their marriage against the wishes of Lady Catherine.), what I mean is how she tells you the after effects in a way very similar to many modern movies, but much more elegantly. The language is tough sometimes, but there were honestly not that many places where I got stuck and had to move on hoping I got the gist of it. Yes I will be reading more Austen.
