by Jane Austen
I was laughing and chuckling at every page, because of the sketches of ridiculous characters in awkward situations.
“Lesley Castle” is no less hilarious, as two very tall sisters meet their new extremely-short stepmother. All the ladies hate each other upon sight, and complain to their friends about the others’ shortcomings with spiteful and snarky dialogue.
“The Three Sisters” tells the story of Mary and her sisters, Sophy and Georgiana, who must decide which of them will marry the odious Mr. Watts for his money and fortune in jewels. Mary especially hates Mr. Watts, who is very unpleasant, but she wants to lord it over her sisters by being the first to be married and flaunt her new jewels. She spends almost the entire story wavering between accepting or rejecting Mr. Watts’ proposal with humorous results.
In the writing style, you can see this delightful little kernel of the author she would become. I enjoyed reading this so much!
