While I quite like Pride & Prejudice, I still don’t see why most people salivate over the book. (My guess is Colin Firth. Thanks, BBC.) I noticed more of the satire and Austen’s commentary of social expectations rather than great, epic romance(!!!). Mr. Bennet, though, is my favorite character just for his awesome snarkiness, and I do love the little subplots strung throughout the book. It’s a must-read, but it only ranks in the middle of my personal Jane Austen list.
