It took me a while reading Anna Karenina and Les Miserables simultaneously. I must say Les Miserables is awesome though I am a firm advocate of editing out the Cosette-Marius love affair. Anna Karenina, on the other hand, bored me but the backdrop was so amazing, I want to read War and Peace the soonest (as recommended by Teddy Boy Locsin).
So it’s time for me to jump to another book. Last night, I bought a new book: Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.
This is the first time I get to have to read Jane Austen. Honestly, I really tried to avoid Jane Austen mainly because its rather thin compared to the other classics. I have this fascination of the thicker the book is, the more cool I seem to be when reading it. However, I think it’s about time to read a pocketbook since having Les Miserables and Anna Karenina on the same bag I have been bringing seems to take toll on my shoulders already.
We will see how reading Jane Austen will go.
PS. I must say, the sentence patterns are, undeniably, British! Reading Sense and Sensibility in british accent seems to be a good idea.
