Cecilia

Cecilia - Fanny Burney, Margaret Anne Doody, Peter Sabor This is (well, was) Jane Austen's favorite novel -- she named "Pride and Prejudice" after a quote from it. Reading it is giving me such a sense of Austen's brilliance. Her writing is realistic fiction compared to this! An entertaining read, but *way* too many characters and too many of them are men -- it's hard to remember who's who, especially since they *all* want to marry the title character.
