- Mr Darcy, probably: Do you know who I think is the ugliest girl in Longbourn? That Elizabeth Bennet. You know what I'd give her on a scale of one to ten, with one as the ugliest and ten as the prettiest? I'd give her an 8... 8.5... or a 9... but not... NOT over a 9.8. Because there is always room for improvement. Not everyone is perfect, like me. I'm holding out for a 10. Because I'm worth it.
I can never bring myself to feel too badly for any of the characters in JA novels because I always think"Well, the servants had it worse." Are there any books about the servants in JA novels?
