Gabe Stewart’s Blog Takeover
Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Hey dudes and dudettes! My name is Gabe Stewart and I want to thank the righteous The Book Review Cafe for letting me take over her site today.
So recently, my best friend Kellen St.James, or K, as I like to call him, told me that I could really win a girl over if I quoted stuff from the books people call “the classics.” I was all like, “Heck, Yes,” so I’ve been working my way through them. The Classics–not the girls. Today I’m going to be reviewing Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
I’ve gotta be real, here. When I first started reading this book I was super-confused. I mean, it starts out with a mom and dad wanting to set up one of their daughters with this new guy in town. Now here’s the confusing part. I thought their daughter, Miss Bennet, had, like, five different personalities, but then I realized that there are five daughters and they’re all called Miss Bennet. I’m not sure what you were up to with that, Jane, but I bet those girls went through a major identity crisis in their twenties.
Once I sorted out who the Miss Bennets all were, I kind of felt sorry for them. I mean the mom is constantly trying to get these girls to marry these guys who have a “title” and money. I’m not sure why her daughters have to be married, because it’s pretty obvious that all of the women in this story are running the show.
My favorite is Lizzy. She doesn’t put up with a lot of crap, especially from this guy, Mr.Darcy, who’s kind of a jerk. Who wants to hang out with some guy that pouts all over the moors? It’s probably damp there anyway, ’cause this takes place in England, after all. I wonder if Singer would like me better if I found some grassland to pout in. Okay, K just told me I’m getting off topic–back to my review.
Anyway, Lizzy gets together with this Mr.Darcy, but only after so many misunderstandings that I really wanted to just set fire to this book. In the end though, it was sort of mushy and I was all like “Aw,” but I didn’t cry. Wait, K didn’t tell you I cried, did he? Cause I totally didn’t.
Gabe’s Take: There were definitely some cool quotes I could use from this book. I’m just not sure I understand any of them.
Gabe Stewart is a fictional character in Stephanie Keyes’ The Star Child Series. This piece is intended as a parody review and should not be interpreted as a true analysis of the book. Read more about Gabe, Singer, Kellen, and Calienta in A Faerie Wedding and Into Faerie.
