I'm sure you've all heard of this book. It's one of those classics that every woman reads and LOVES. Well, almost every woman.
First let me apologize in advance to all of the intelligent, funny, wonderful women I know who love this book.
I have a confession to make. I have a really hard time with Pride and Prejudice. I read it because I wanted to know what the big hoopla over it was but I have never had a more difficult time following a story in my life. I had to go back and read some parts a second and third time to try to get what was going on. And I get it (the story) but I don't get it (the hoopla).
Let's just get it all out there...
I am COMPLETELY okay with never reading it again.
I know, I am a disgrace to the female gender. I'm sorry... really, I am. I wanted so badly to finish this book and have some understanding of why everyone loves it and why women everywhere swoon over Mr. Darcy but you know what? He's not real. There is NO Mr. Darcy. He's a fictional character and he does not exist. Kind of like Edward in the Twilight books. (Put down your pitchfork! I'm just saying!!)
Well, I've come clean.
I hope we can still be friends.
