  1. More concise language and construction. Try something like this:

    Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy's acquaintance starts off pleasantly, but soon Mr. Darcy finds himself strongly attracted to Elizabeth because of her ____ personality.

    (You determine the adjective you want to put in before "personality.")

  2. [Well, that's not much more concise, but the clauses and phrases are less flip-floppy all over the place!]

  3. I think it's NICE .
