Guy likes girl but comes across snobby. Girl doesn’t like guy. Girl slowly gets to learn more of guy. Girl realizes that love can bloom. Tada! (I don’t want to give much away especially if you haven’t read it. It’s a decent read, I reccomend you try it on for size)

@King_Pariah Well put!
@JilltheTooth Now I kinda want to know what you said before!

Read it (again, if you have read it already). It’s not long.

Generally I always thought it was more about how complex people motives can be. If you really look at the story she is a snob as well and a hypocrite. She says she doesn’t believe people should judge others and yet she does that in everyway and with everyone. She assumes certain behaviors from people before they even really had a chance to prove themselves to her, and assumes the worst of someone after only hearing one side of the story without giving them the benefit of the doubt.
She quickly assumes that only her evalutations are correct and everyone else is wrong.

It’s about zombies, of course.

The title pretty much gives Jane Austen’s sentiments away ;)

Me thinks you need to do your own homework.

@MollyMcGuire Me thinks since I’m using this example by choice, it was not required, it’s not technically homework. I’m writing a report on The Wager by Anton Chekhov so I didn’t really have time to read the book. So technically I’m not asking you to do my homework.

Yes, you are. Don’t try to rationlize laziness. There are many places online to find a summary of the book.

If you have a problem with my question or my intentions then don’t answer. It’s as simple as that. Thank you for judging me, now goodbye.

@likipie : OK, but I told you it was smart-ass!
I said: “Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl.”

@JilltheTooth From what others have told me, that pretty much sums it up!!

It’s a classic storyline… ;-)
