OK, first of all, I want to mention how delightful it was to listen to this audiobook! It was easy to understand, even in double the speed :)
This was my introduction to Jane Austen and it wasn't a bad one, though I'd say, exclusively as a story, it's somewhat overrated. It felt like, even though things were always happening, everything was the same? Maybe that's me not liking this setting and age for its formalities and etiquette (and the aristocracy), but it felt very still. Again, I thank the audiobook version, for if I had read the actual book, I would have probably DNF-ed it.
It wasn't a "wow" for me, but it wasn't a "meh" either, so it counts as a win in my book! (And besides, it's one more classic to my "read" list!! 😎)
