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.
