Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen book)


Published 2022-08-01.

If I had to graph my enjoyment of this book, the line would be U-shaped. The first quarter and the last quarter were both really fun. The middle half was a slog.

This book is 99% social dynamics. There is barely any physical description of settings or even characters. It reminded me of the Neapolitan novels in that sense.

Mr. Collins is hilarious. I could read a whole book about just him. Lady Catherine de Bourgh is a fantastic villain. Lizzy is an awesome protagonist; what a hero. Mary is the most underrated Bennett sister. Mr. Bennett is a pretty terrible husband and father.
