Book Review: Pride and Prejudice


Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen





PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has delighted generations of readers with its ingenious plot, brilliant dialogue, inventive assortment of unique characters, and wealth of humor. The central theme is the romantic clash of two opinionated young people. In one corner, there is Elizabeth Bennet, our highly vivacious heroine, in the other, the arrogant but captivating Mr. Darcy. Their destinies interweave in a timeless pattern of courtship, love, property, and marriage.





I honestly don’t know how many times I have read this novel, but it never disappoints me.  Books just aren’t written like this anymore.  I love P&P for the misunderstandings, the witty banter and its beloved characters.  The characters are so real, and it’s so easy to love them.  Even the ridiculous characters such as Mr. Collins and Mrs. Bennet become have become my well-loved friends.  And who doesn’t love the brooding Mr. Darcy??





Would I recommend this to my BFF?  Absolutely.  Everyone should read this once.

Would I recommend this to my daughter?  Yes, but she might have trouble with the old English.





5 of 5 stars.
