>>7615968 Nabokov, Vladimir. Dislike him. A cheap sensationalist, clumsy and vulgar. A prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. Some of his scenes are extraordinarily amusing. Nobody takes his reactionary journalism seriously.
>>7616482 I read pride and prejudice and thought it was really good.
I do think a large part of status is that she was one of the earliest writers of novels as we now know them.
Her characters are interesting and well developed, the pacing is good for the type of story it is, and prose-wise there aren't really any lazy sentences.
The hangup a lot of people have with her novels is that the things her characters are concerned about and the sources of their conflicts have very little bearing on the contemporary way of life, so it can be hard to relate the characters. Probably more so if you are male.
Pride and prejudice is a fairly quick read. I would say you should just bite the bullet and read it so that you can say you did and have an opinion about Austen.
