Rocky McRochester V. Mr Darcy: A Celebrity Death Match For The Ages

Guess what I'm reading? Pride and Prejudice! Yes, I have finally decided to see what all the fuss is about. So far, I'm at 25% on my Kindle, and I must admit, although I am enjoying this book, I liked Jane Eyre better at this point along. Also, Rocky McRochester was a much more alluring character at the beginning of JE....dark, brooding, calculating. Mr. Darcy seems sort of like a ding-a-ling. But I am reserving judgment since various P and P supporters assure me that Mr. D steps it up by the end of the book.

I'm picturing Mr D and Rocky in an animated version of Celebrity Death Match. Dressed in period garb, with their heroines cheering in the stands. Who will win? Who will suffer a crushing blunt-head trauma? Who will lose a limb before the fight is over? I don't know, but right now I'm cheering for Rocky.

Looking forward to finishing this tasty morsel,
