I seem to put a lot of pressure on these heroines act in a plucky and unidiotic way and when they don’t meet my expectations I end up disliking them so much I can’t enjoy the book.

Emma is one of those characters for me, she makes me want to slap her and tell her to stop being such an idiot. Now, I know she married an fool (which was her own fault) but at least she could have picked better lovers. Somehow I think I would have liked her better if she was more mercenary instead of romantic.

A beautifully written story about unhappy people doing, unsurprisingly, unhappy things. All the depression and deception simply became too much - I refused to waste any more of my time on this emotionally morbid classic - that a quarter way in I put the book aside, read the Wikipedia plot synopsis, returned to the book and skimmed over the end. Three stars for the wonderful writing.
