Oh, dear... I'm so in love!
As a reader, I know I'm late in reading this classic but I was always pushing it for later and then, after seeing the movie on Netflix, I started this e-book and, my God, I regret not reading it sooner.
Mr. Darcy, you're my new crush! <3
Jane Austen has this amazing writing skills that made me fall in love on the first pages. Also, I not always a fan of historical romances but this one is a whole different story. The writing is so great that I actually imagined all the scenes in my head. I imagined the music, the clothing, the dances, everything... And seeing the movie, only enhanced my imagination. I loved it!! Already marked her other works as to-read.
Ps. There's this page on Amazon where they provide free e-book of these classics. It's called AmazonClassics.
Below are a few quotes I loved.
"(...) 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."
"The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense."
"After a silence of several minutes, he came towards her in an agitated manner, and thus began: 'In vain I have struggled. I will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.'"
"They were within twenty yards of each other, and so abrupt was his appearance, that it was impossible to avoid his sight. Their eyes instantly met, and the cheeks of both were overspread with the deepest blush."
