This book has not just one #obnoxiouscharacter but two. Lydia Bennet and Mr. Collins are insufferable!
#auldlangreads

ElizaMarie The cover of that book is simply beautiful! 1d
veritysalter You should read ‘Death Comes to Pemberley‘ by P.D. James for Lydia and Mr Wickham to get their comeuppance. 1d
OriginalCyn620 Really @veritysalter?! That‘d be reason enough to read it! 1d

#QuotsyJan20 #Discontent

I went through a lot of e-book to find some “discontent” & had to resort to my old standby, Pride and Prejudice. Judging from the number of times Mrs. Bennet‘s nerves acted up, she was frequently discontent! 😉🤣

I borrowed Alice Pattullo‘s illustration from my beloved Rockport Classics Reimagined edition. 💙

sprainedbrain Her poor nerves! 😂 2w
Herschelian My kids (now grown up) used to mock me when they were in their teens, calling me ‘Mrs Bennett‘ and saying ‘ oh we shall be ruined, what will become of us?‘ whenever I got mad at them about something. 6d
DebinHawaii @Herschelian That is hilarious! 🤣🤣🤣 (edited) 6d

2019 marked my fourth time reading this and I still love it. Probably my favourite Austen. You just gotta love her writing, her irony, the way she mocks her own characters and criticises social conventions of her time. Elizabeth is an amazing protagonist, funny, intelligent but far from perfect. Seeing her and Mr Darcy fall in love despite their pride and prejudices is funny, cute and kinda romantic. Will reread again in 2020 😁.

You guys! I just finished watching the P&P movie (I love MacFadyen with the fire of a thousand suns), after 24 days and 4 trips through the P&P miniseries (Firth is no slouch!)... I was remarking on how much I enjoyed Drunk Austen‘s #25Days of Pride & Prejudice, and went to check the last blog.

Happy Jane‘s birthday to all of us!

I‘m celebrating with episode 4 of the miniseries (for the third time this month) because it‘s #25DaysOfPrideAndPrejudice with drunkausten.com and I‘m seeing new things every time around.

This time... is it just me or does Colin Firth have an extremely nice neck? 🔥😍😂

Biblionut ❤️ It‘s inspiring me to start the new year off with a Jane Austen book. I haven‘t decided which one. 🤔 1mo

sprainedbrain @Biblionut @Branwen oh I love Mansfield Park, too! Maybe I should just reread them all... including Emma (my least favorite) since I‘m going to have to see that new movie. Bill Nighy as Mr. Woodhouse is intriguing, and maybe I won‘t dislike Emma so much if I reread. 😬 1mo
mklong Love this! I‘m doing the 25 days too and everyday I say “oh, I think this is my favorite episode.” I just downloaded this one because the older I get, the more intrigued I am by Charlotte 1mo

Is anyone else joining in for Drunk Austen‘s #25days of Pride and Prejudice? We are binging the 1995 miniseries this year, 1 episode per day. So of course that‘s 4 trips through the series, and on day 25 our hostesses are throwing down and watching all 6. I‘m thinking I will watch the 2005 movie on Christmas instead because I FREAKING LOVE IT.

Anyway, today was day 4, aka wet Darcy day. 😍

See drunkausten.com for even more A+ content. 🙌🏻

“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”

I couldn‘t help but love Mr. Bennet! His letter to Collins at the end is just priceless - a polite 🖕🏾. I thought his character witty and admirably tolerant, despite Lizzy‘s criticism as warranted as it may have been. As for Collins, Austen couldn‘t have painted a better portrait of an ass! 😆 Mrs. B added much fun color.

I think it was Emma I read long ago and disliked as a twit, but who knows because obviously my memory can‘t be trusted!

ravenlee Emma is definitely a twit, and probably my least favorite JA. I like P&P but Persuasion is my favorite. 3mo
Tamra @ravenlee good to know I‘m not totally clueless! I have Persuasion on my shelf - I‘ll pick it up over Xmas break, thank you for the reminder. (edited) 3mo
Tamra I think we‘re supposed to dislike Mrs. B, but I pitied her as a product of her times. She was also not without her nutty charms. Also, if mine and my 5 daughters‘ future security was a complete unknown I‘d be a little unhinged as well. 3mo
See All 9 Comments
LeahBergen I thought Emma was such a twit, too. I should probably give it a reread now that I‘m (much!) older as I love all of Austen‘s other books. 3mo
ravenlee @LeahBergen I reread it earlier this year, about 15 years after my first read, and still found her obnoxious. I find her relationship with Mr. Knightley a little creepy, too, which was more obvious this time around. 3mo
LeahBergen @ravenlee Now that you mention it... yeah, that relationship IS a tad creepy!! I remember finding him so fatherly for much of the novel. 😬 3mo
ravenlee @LeahBergen the whole story he‘s molding her, guiding her behavior and views, calling himself an older brother...to create his perfect, much younger wife...definitely creepy. 3mo
Tamra @ravenlee 😐 Inspiration for Lolita? 3mo
batsy Good point about Mrs. B! I think Austen really captures that type of mother well while also showing how they become that way. 3mo
