Gone is the old idea that graphic novels are only about violence and expletives. This graphic novel is a lovely, refreshing take on the adventures of Miss Mary King after she leaves the dastardly company of Mr.

The author takes the story across the pond, and remembers to keep the flavor of Jane Austin's classic. Nicely done.

But if there is any passion, it is either angry or subdued. The possible romantic scenes are quickly brushed over and are rather subtle.

It seems to really be a novel about finding financial security and the union of two compatible strong-minded people in that quest. Darcy actually culminates in the scene when she sees his estate.
Of course after seeing his vast and beautiful property, all of Mr. Darcy is from the servants, the misunderstanding between the villainous Wickham and Mr. Darcy has been cleared conveniently just a few chapters before, and Mr. The path is clear to become mistress of Pemberley! Additionally, we get little sense of the happenings between the couple when Elizabeth does give her hand to Mr.
Darcy in the end.

Jane Austen basically narrates for us unlike the angry rejection, which we had dialogue for dialogue. If there is sensuality in the characters, there is little in the book itself, but rather in the Colin Firths and the Kiera Knightleys we are privy to in modern screen adaptations. The deficiency of romance in what appears to be a romantic novel seems deceiving to Bronte and she harshly criticizes Austen that she is a fluffy writer who is not capable of depicting proper description or emotion.

I should hardly like to live with her ladies and gentlemen, in their elegant but confined houses. While negatively appraising the landscape, Bronte also added in her critique of the stodgy characters who acted in the way of the norm rather than doing something madly exceptional. The way the characters are described, they are run of the mill puppets with nothing memorable them. There is stuffiness, snobbery, a desire to find some sort of pecuniary collateral through marriage. Does this promote feminism? While possibly progressive in thought, does Elizabeth Bennett endorse feelings of feminism as she marries Mr.
Favret comments on his criticism, saying Twain disliked the severe class distinction and the unrelenting propriety of the hero and heroine. There was no adventure, no finding of the individual identity, but rather finding ways to stick to the standard set. It did not evoke a sense for change and instead was steeped in the same culture of the centuries before.
It was simply unsatisfying. How satisfying Pride and Prejudice is naturally up to the reader. Waterman and Julia Beaumont. And how many have I read? Are you ready for it…its a big number…. Beat that if you can!

Mary King Part V: the Sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
I have long since given up trying to read everything written unless someone recommends a book to me, so I know I am missing some jewels along the way and that bothers me. Congratulations to everyone who published last year!

I agree with you about reading LONG books! Plus, I feel better about paying sometimes exhorbitant prices to AMazon Kindle if an e-book is several hundred pages long. I can read a book that length in no time flat!
