Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen I can't remember how many times I've read this book, and I've seen the BBC mini-series even more times. It never fails to draw me in.Some things struck me...* Mrs. Bennett really is insufferable! I thought it very telling that Mr. Bennett tells Lizzie that he couldn't bear it if "she also found herself in a position where she couldn't respect her spouse". How awful.* Mr. Bennett ends up calling Wickham his favourite son-in-law? In self-irony I hope.* Lizzie and especially Jane really did fall in love remarkably quick.* Austen doesn't seem very capable of writing happy married couples, does she? At least, I can't think of any.* I need to rewatch the mini-series now!
