yes it really is. jane austen is a genius and Elisabeth Bennett is one of if not the most envied characters of all time.

yaa you should really read the book and see the older movie too! both movies are really good. but be warned the older movie is like five hours.
you get a little more sense of darcy.

I completely agree. I can never start a book and not finish it. Even if it's horrid, I always have to finish it or else I'll drive myself mad. =|

I never finished Eldest because I have no idea. It just didn't stick haha.
And usually books for school. I have to read at my own pace. I can't read one chapter every two days. It doesn't work like that for me. And I would end up not reading the books because well idk either haha. I guess I would refuse to read them after a while. -shrugs-
Check it out

I could not finish the golden compass!! I dnt think i got to the 2nd or 3rd chapter. idk y but i couldn't get into it!
Same. Horrible horrible book. Ugh. I have a bunch of books I plan on finishing but not yet... :/ Wicked being one of them. I get the to beginning of the second book and then it's like my mind decides it doesnt want to read it anymore, Twice that happened to that book.

there where alot of books that i started reading that i didnt end up getting into of there was another book that i couldnt wait to sink ym teeth into but there was one i could NOT feel the need to pick up again. now, i love the author, dont get me wrong, but i just wasnt into to at all, which was call Peeps. i love scott westerfeld but i just couldnt get into. i will probably go back one day when i have nothing to read and try again but i just have to many to read!!

I used to attempt to always finish a book. Then I realized there are way too many books that I want to read to waste my time reading books I'm not enjoying.
I think there were only two books I couldn't finish in the last year:
Before I Die, which is pretty bad because I was actually listening to it on audio, which takes no effort, but it was so bad I stopped after 2 CDs.
Un Lun Dun which felt like reading nonsense.

i never finished the uglies series by scott westerfeld.. i stopped in the middle of "specials" i just didnt find any point to the story and it was repeating itself over and over again ever since the first book.. and i really like scott westerfeld he's one of my all-time-favorite authors but i didnt like that book. the rest of them are amazing!!

I got abut 90 pages into the Host and just couldn't go on. I found it so slow, but a friend told me it gets at good about half way through, so I might go back to it and try again, who knows.
I usually finish the books I read in most cases.

I've never finished a book assigned at school. I would always read like the first 2-3 chapters and then make my friend tell me what happened, they are just soo boring!
haha I guess that is not true anymore. I've finished all the books assigned in class so far. The Giver by Lois Lowry, A Pocketful of Rye by Agatha Christie, and And Then There Were None by Agatha Christies

I never finished A Hopeless Romantic by Harriet Evans and Sunshine by Robin McKinley.
I got about half way through each one before I couldn't stand it anymore. A Hopeless Romantic just never got interesting enough and Sunshine the girl could not stop talking about all the stupid things she had to bake!

I usually TRY to finish everything I start, or at least skim it to see how it ends. However, I really didn't like the Uglies series by Scott Westerfield, so I never made it to the last page
