A Confession


I can no longer call myself a Janeite. Over the last few months or so, I have undergone a complete change of heart in regards to the work of Miss Austen. How can I put this. I just. . . don't like her books any more. They are overlong, shallow, tedious, and - dare I say it - BORING. I'm sorry if I offend anyone. I just can't understand how Jane Austen's books ever appealed to me in the first place.

Sorry, Jane.

As we age;) we find our tastes changing and developing. You'll find a 'new love', interested to wait and see which author you develop an interest in.
I'm on a biography binge at present.

You know as much as I like Jane Austen, I have to kind of agree with you. She is tedious some times, and I have found that her books aren't as deep as others(like the Bronte sister now those I could have a field day with:)So though I still like Austen I agree that I don't like her as much as I use too.

OH NO!!!!!! OH MY!!!

This can't be true, however I must agree with you, her books are SO BORING, I've never liked them, and I don't think I ever will.
