Atomium Escalator: Travelling through hyperspace in the Belgian tourist attraction
I was already a fan of Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are two of my favourite books, but a quote I discovered of his this week has earned him even more respect in my eyes. It's about his opinion of Jane Austen, who I'm not a fan of. Not at all. I get that she writes well but to me it's all just as unrelatable and dull as Bridget Jones's Diary. Being made to read two of her books at University was a painful experience and has left me shaking my fist at the mere mention of her name ever since. However it seems Mark Twain was taking the J-Aust hate to a whole new level way back in 1898:
“I haven't any right to criticize books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.”
“I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone”. I laughed so hard when I read that bit it hurt. Powerful mean stuff Mr Twain, but powerful funny too.
