“You see, this happened a few months ago, but it’s still going on right now, and it ought to make us feel ashamed when we talk like we know what we’re talking about when we talk about love.”

I have fallen in love many times. One of my first loves was Dustfinger, the dark but caring misfit from Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart series. As I grew, I learned to love more complex characters, falling deeply for Alobar, the king-turned-nomad of Tim Robbins’s Jitterbug Perfume. I was helpless to Mr. Darcy’s classic romance, a love with which most readers of Pride and Prejudice would identify.
