#MayBookPrompts Challenge: Day 3

May Book Prompts

Challenge: Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice is one of the most boring books I’ve ever had the displeasure of attempting to read. I’ve never finished the book on two attempts and decided not to bother. It’s supposed to be a novel on manners (according to many), but who better than the French to teach us about etiquette eh?

King Louis XIV knew that everything France did was looked upon by her rivals and allies alike with envy. When he implemented etiquette rules, dictating how one should eat or sit whilst the King is in their presence, other countries followed suit. He was the master of etiquette and took pleasure in making sure Versailles stuck to the rules. The Sun King was perhaps, the most influential Monarch who ever lived.

    1. Thank you! 🙂 I happen to think of King Louis XIV whenever the word etiquette is mentioned. Yes, extremely boring. I gave up trying to read it to the end.

  1. Oh yes, he definitely was given all the wonderful things he brought to France. He is my favorite King in the history of Kings alongside King Solomon.
