Third time is a charm right? I have tried to read this book 2 other times. The first time, I think I was too young. The second time was about a year ago. I then read an article on the main characters to make sure I was keeping them all straight in my mind and accidentally read some spoilers so I had to put the book down. It‘s time to pick it back up again. Here are some quotes I liked from today‘s reading.

I decided to embark on a journey through BBC‘s top 100 books to read before you die and selected 1984 (I know what you are thinking...Didn‘t I read that book in high school?!—nope). Anyway about 3/4th in the book took quite a sharp left turn and it sort of disappointed me because I liked the path it was on...but I will say the end got me thinking (isn‘t that the point anyway?). As BBC says, you should read before you die.

Bit of truth rang clear as I was reading today. Interesting how insights from the late 1940s still apply today. Makes me wonder if humanity has evolved at all over the last 70 years...

Like a lot of people, this is my favorite Austen novel. You just can‘t go wrong with the wit, intellect, and strength of Miss Elizabeth Bennet. And of course the cast of supporting characters are entertaining as well. A sign of a truly great novel is that it contains truths that withstand the ages, as this book does.
