Maria Irinel Mocanu a dat nota:

I have been in love with Austen's writing ever since I read Pride and Prejudice while in college. At the time, it was just another book that HAD to be read. Still, the more I read, the more I got involved in the plot, partly because, you see, I can say I totally identified with Elizabeth. And it was just the beginning. I breathlessly read Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion, Mansfield Park and I have yet to read Northanger Abbey. I believe her novels offer such a fresh and yet classical insight into women's soul and the journey of self-discovery that the characters need to follow in order to find true love is presented majestically against an intricate background of a perfectly-detailed society, whose actors are finely defined through their flaws or their qualities. It is often the case that only the main characters are deep and complex, projected against a shallow and simple-minded world, only to underline those characteristics that are so rare in Austen's world, and, I am sorry to say, in ours too. I admire her ability to finely observe a more than imperfect society and to spot the beauty in it, to convey healthy ideas and change mentalities, to be so modern although times presumably have changed. And I admire her delicate and yet strong rebellion against Victorian standards that limitated women's freedom, her fight against women's being predented as assets (or not) of an enragingly patriarchal society. Austen is a true feminist, and she is so determined to give her characters the happiness she could not achieve in her life, having them risk their quiet, yet meaningless existence, in pursuit of true love. Which comes, even one has to wait a lifetime, as Anne Elliot does in Persuasion. And one final thought: I strongly believe that a good book has the power to address the readers' is exactly what her novels do. I found myself crying or laughing, meditating and despairing, wondering what Jane and her characters would do, what I would do in similar situations, and I believe that this is exactly the point of a good book: to challenge your critical thinking and to make you feel, even if that feeling may be despair and sadness. Jane's expectations of the world, and implicitly, of men were high. And teaching women not to settle for less is the greatest lesson of all. Always know your worth and find somebody who loves you ardently for who you are... and keep an open mind, otherwise, just like in Sense and Sensibility, you might not see the one standing before you the whole time... So, respectfully, I recommend Jane's novels to be read and re-read at all ages, because they have to offer something for everyone. And my secret wish would be for men to read them too, they might offer some clear and fresh insight into the so-called mysterious feminine mind and they might be that revelation that changes everything for the better.
