One of my friends posted on Facebook the other day, asking for our most unpopular (non-political) opinion. So now I’m doing the same…. but with a bookish twist (of course!). Confession is good for the soul, right?
I… *deep breath* … am not all that fond of Mr. Darcy.
*waits to be pelted with rotten tomatoes*
It’s true. Of all of Jane Austen’s heroes, Mr. Knightley (from Emma) is my favorite. And my favorite book is Persuasion for all its great lines. And my favorite movie adaptation is the Emma Thompson/Kate Winslet/Hugh Grant/Alan Rickman version of Sense and Sensibility.
I find Pride and Prejudice perfectly wonderful… but it’s not my fave on any level. And Mr. Darcy? He just doesn’t do it for me.
So. That’s my most unpopular bookish opinion. What’s yours? This is a safe space. No produce throwing… I promise 🙂
