Febuary Reading 2/2

North and South
Elizabeth Gaskell

So, think Pride and Prejudice, but with a lot of death, unlikeable characters, and a kind Mr. Darcy. Margret Hale is uptight, self important and beyond unlikeable. It take's her parents, God-father, and several friends dying to make her even mildly tolerable. Not a good pair with Pride and Prejudice. End's as one would expect, with a pissed off want to be lover, and Margret and Thornton together for the last half a page. The rest of the characters are irritatingly shallow, unable to think for themselves, or are so involved with themselves that they don't see the big picture. Not a favorite
