What will it happened ? Will Fanny be happy and loving ?
I love Jane AUSTEN so I asked all her books in English for Christmas. And my mother decided to buy the most genuine cover ! For the challenge Bookineur en couleur, I searched all my blue books, and this one corresponded. I want to begin it, but I hadn't expected that it was written so small and that I took all this time to read it ! I mean, in one week, I only read 20 pages...
I already knew the story, because I have watched the BBC film. However, it's not my favorite and I had a lot of problems to read it... More than the character size, the vocabulary is a little complicate. I mean, I don't know if it's because it was tired to read, but I didn't retain anything of what I was reading... Despite of that, I like the story. But I was a little lost, because it was not exactly as the film.
For the characters, I'm a little desappointed. I mean, in the film, I really liked Fanny and Edmund, but here, with the point of vue wich change all the time, I cannot totally attached me to them. It's too bad ! Futhermore, it was difficult for me to understand who was speaking during the dialogues... They have none reminder, like 'said Fanny' or 'answered Edmund' and so on. Despite all of it, I like all the characters, except maybe aunt Norris or the two sisters Bertram... But I have to admit that I were quite in love of Henry !
To be honest, I wanted to finish absolutely finish the book this evening, so in two days, I had to read more than 150 pages and it's a lot, when we thought that in 2 weeks I only read 50 pages... All of that is to say that the 2 last chapters were horrible to read... I thought about all, except what was happening ! But, comparing to the rest of the book, the end was a little quick ! It's impressive all what happen in the last chapter !
Good, but the edition is complicate to read !!

"I like your Miss Bertrams exceedingly, sister," said he, as he returned form attending them to their carriage after the said dinner visit; "they are vere elegant, agreeable girls."
"So they are indeed, and I am delighted to hear you say it. But you like Julia best."
"Oh, yes ! I like Julia best."
"But do you really ? for Miss Bertram is in general thought the handsomest."
"So I should suppose. She has the advantage in every feature, and I prefer her countenance ; but I like Julia best ; Miss Bertram is certainly the handsomest, and I have found her the most agreeable, but I shall always like Julia best, because you order me."
