|A group read (thank you, Barbara!)

I saw S&S2, which got me interested in P&P2, so I saw that (by coincidence, it was on TV here in Japan the very day after I saw S&S2) and then read P&P.
Then I thought I'd like to tackle another JA book, and since I'd enjoyed the movie, I thought I'd enjoy S&S. However, at first, I couldn't get into it, and I put it aside after the first volume. A few weeks later, an S&S group read started, and I decided to give it another chance. The group read discussion kept me going and also helped me appreciate it more. That was in 1998, I believe, and I've re-read it a couple times since and have come to appreciate it more and more. If it hadn't been for that group read, I wonder if I ever would have picked it up again or come to appreciate it tot he degree I did.
I know that it is considered "flawed," and I do see some of those flaws, but its good points so far outweigh its weaknesses that it has become one of my all time favorite books.
