    Haole, one of my all time faves is Jane Eyre too. I will discuss it with anyone who wants to. I just re-read Pride and Prejudice too. I love Austen.

    GF, Haole, I loved Pride and Prejudice! Very very good. I admit that I tear when Mr. Darcy first told Jane he loved her.

    ``In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.''

    Ah.

    Ok back to topic. Am reading 'The Lovely Bones' now, seems like Jane Eyre is very good. I'll check that out.

    The Poisonwood Bible (Barbara Kingsolver) was oustanding! As was The Crystal Shard (R.A. Salvatore)!

    I've always loved Jane Eyre, have reread it about 20 times, same is true for most of Jane Austin's books. May go see if I can get Lovely Bones at the Libery.. Got to find something better to read.

    I totally hated it and also thought it was so dark and dreary. I wanted to kick myself for actually finishing the book, but the first 100 pages showed some promise that was never fullfilled.

    I must have a masochistic streak in me somewhere.
    About a 1/3 of the way through I started rewritting the book in my head. Which is a very bad sign.

    The book would have been much better if the whole "presentation of the new product" part had been 2 pages or less and more focus was spent on Enid and Albert's history as a couple, I was never able to get a good grasp of how this group of screwballs got to where they were and what's worse, I didn't care after awhile. If I wasn't so complusive, I would have set the darn book down about a thrid of the way through.

    For a much better book that covers a family falling apart due to a father having dementia read "Dad" (the movie didn't do the book justice)

    I thought you meant you've been reading a series of Hewlett-Packard instructional manuals.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Also finished Widow, and agree with Sher, it is Irving's best work since Owen Meany.
