Don’t hold back, Ms. Bronte. <a href="http://thebennetsisters.wordpress.com/2011/04/07/when-other-authors-hate-pride-and-prejudice/"Tell us what you really think.
Of course, it’s hard to say what’s taste and what’s just reaction against “old-fashioned” books, when it comes to writers of different eras and aims. But it’s kinda sad when wit, humor, and sympathy can’t stretch between literary eras, or persons whom you’d think would have understood each other.
OTOH, Bronte may just not have been in the mood for what she got. It took me a while to appreciate Austen.
