Tripe and Tedious

And, now, perhaps the briefest review ever--my interpretation of the first 60+ pages of Emma:

"Oh, my dear, you musn't think of falling for him.  He's too crude and crass."
"Oh, my dear Emma, you are perfectly correct.  I shan't give him another thought."
"Oh, my dear, that's good because I would have to knock you flat on your arse if you were considering someone of such low birth."

Yawn.  I tried, but life's too short.  Plus, I like 'em crude and crass.
