Pride & Prejudice, by Jane Austen (pub.1813)

This title came up in a discussion about required reading in AP courses.  All I could remember about it was the opening line and that it seemed to have too much dialog and practically no action.  Someone suggested I re-read it "with an open mind"; so now I am into the 10th chapter, and my first impressions are confirmed.

It took a few chapters to re-realize what all the dialog was about -- gossip, much like what I overhear in the break room during lunch at work.

I believe Ms. Austen's work may have been largely biographical, but I could be wrong.
Now on chapter 25, and gawd is it BORING!

Gonna finish it anyway to fulfill a promise.

They should release the recordings for us!

Are his recent albums any good? Ring Leader of the Tormentors is my fave. It's stunning.


I think the last one I heard was Years of Refusal, which had some good songs. Mostly I stick with Viva Hate through Southpaw Grammar.


Years of Refusal is a great album. That was the last tour I followed. Vauxhall and I is a beauty too.

Kingdoms at War, by Lindsay Buroker.

It's epic fantasy and the first book in her Dragon's Gate series.
