• Be not Prejudice: Austinian Pride

    Date: 09.01.11 | by Sierra Ferguson.

    “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”

    So begins the leap, the lark, the plunge into what is one of the most acclaimed novels of all time. One need search no further than the first few pages of this spectacular novel of manners in order to understand why the world’s girls are becoming infected with Austin-itis. Girls, get ready to be swept off your feet by Mr. Darcy. Back off boys, this is no two-bit romantic sap story. It’s become a classic for a reason. Mr. Bennett’s dry humor and the almost ardent stupidity of Mrs. Bennett and Mr. Collins will almost certainly draw your laughs. The story is rich with wit, and brilliantly colored with a lovable, detestable, and laughable cast of characters. This novel is honestly worth not just tossing, but throwing aside the TV remote for. Pages will fly by once you’ve met Ms. Elizabeth, and possibly passed your own judgment on Darcy. From its comical beginning to its delicious conclusion, this book is one to satisfy. If one rates a novel in stars, Austin’s achievement would constitute a constellation.

    This post was written by Sierra Ferguson. She's caffeinated, sixteen, and addicted to procedural crime shows. Sierra was first introduced to the law (at a young age) by Donald P. Belisarius's riveting television series "JAG", starring (most cheesily) a six foot four, ex-fighter pilot, named Harm. Since then, she has become an aspiring writer and a member of her high school's Mock Trial program (where she got to try her hand at litigation; defending and prosecuting fictional cases in real courtrooms). In today's world, the name John Locke will conjure more images of the "LOST" island, than the enlightenment's production of the basic rights of man (which inspired parts of the constitution, and arguably much of the basis of our legal system). That is why Sierra is thrilled to be writing for Ask the Judge. Teens need (and deserve) information about the law. "Caf-Pow" or "Starbucks" in hand, Sierra is ready to write about the law and the very real effects that it can have on you.
