Sooooooo, Jane Austen writes like Yoda talks. I’m 30 pages in and keep having to reread sentences like
“Not all that Mrs. Bennet, however, with the assistance of her five daughters, could ask on the subject, was sufficient to draw from her husband any satisfactory description of Mr. Bingley.”
because they’re making sod all sense to me. I speak English, I’ve directed Shakespeare, I DONT HAVE A FUCKING CLUE WHAT IS UP WITH MRS BENNET.
