    Highly Reccommend

    Jane Austen is a renowned author from the early 19th century. Her books are usually romantic novels with a strong heroine. This book, Pride and Prejudice was converted into a few motion pictures in various adaptations. Pride and Prejudice captivates the reader from the first chapter and keeps you wondering which Bennet girl will end up married.
    Ms. Austen introduces us to the Bennet family focusing on Elizabeth Bennet, who is a spirited woman searching for love. She enchants the reader with her amusing evaluations of her surroundings which made it easy to relate to her since it made her character lifelike. Jane Bennet is the sweet sister of Elizabeth who seeks the positive side of every person and situation. She captures the attention of the wealthy Mr. Bingley who is a gentleman with a pleasant disposition. Mr. Darcy is Mr. Bingley¿s friend who is captivated by Elizabeth Bennet.
    The story of Pride and Prejudice is based around the words of the title. Elizabeth Bennet is prideful as we see her response to Mr. Darcy¿s proposal, ¿I have never desired your good opinion, and you have certainly bestowed it most unwillingly.¿ (186) The women of that generation tried to marry as well as they possibly could, not necessarily for love. Mr. Darcy¿s prejudice gets in the way of the developing relationship between Jane and Mr. Bingley. He admitted to Elizabeth in his letter towards her after his first proposal of his assistance in breaking their relationship: ¿pointing out to my friend, the certain evils of such a choice.¿ Elizabeth does eventually realize that her pride got in the way of her happiness and lets Mr. Darcy into her heart. Mr. Darcy slowly changed his prejudices against Elizabeth and realized that she is of his stature, and is humbled by her as we see in their conversation after his second proposal: ¿You shewed me how insufficient were all my pretensions to please a woman worthy of being pleased.¿ (349)
    The novel captivates the audience from the beginning by putting the reader into feeling like part of the late 18th century by describing in detail each place they visited. Describing Elizabeth¿s first view of Mr. Darcy¿s house, Pemberley; ¿It was a large, handsome, stone building, standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody hills¿¿(235) The book brings the reader from the Bennet¿s house, Longbourne, to Netherfield, the estate that Mr. Bingley rents. They travel from London neighborhoods to Pemberley House.
    Pride and Prejudice is a classic story about love that takes during a time period where people are separated by class and value. Ms. Austen captivates her readers from the beginning and throughout every chapter with the romantic ups and downs of the Bennet sisters, which shows how she became a most beloved author of the early 19th century. The reader falls in love with all characters and ends the book feeling satisfied with how it ends.

    Best Romance Novel Ever

    I personally really enjoyed this book. It is such an innocent love story and Jane Austen is excellent at character development. Elizabeth is a strong, smart and whitty young lady who you can't help but love. Elizabeth's prejudice and Mr. Darcy's pride create an enchanting story not easily matched.

    Pride and Prejudice

    I respect the fact that this is a classic and the strong female role Elizabeth plays for the era. Lizzy's mother was pretty funny contridicting herself several times and only really caring if her girls got married to a rich man. Many love stories today have branched from this book which I also respect, but it was really hard for me to stay interested. Dialog was place in narration at times and the read itself was very dry. There were long statements where by the time i was midway to almost done I forgot who was speaking and who with. Many of their conversations were not that interesting, but again I understand it is a classic and for the time and even for some people today it is still a favorite.

    Love this book!

    I just read this book for the third time. I must admit I had to use a dictionary a lot the first time because there are so many words we do not use today in 21st century America. It was definitely worth the extra effort, though. I love the way Jane Austin uses witty conversation and observations in this book. It really is very funny even on a third reading of it, and, of course, I love the love story between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.

    Wow is this book boring.  Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen was

    Wow is this book boring.  Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen was PAINFUL to read.

    PAINFUL!!!!!

    The book is filled with rich people being super proper.  Oh my goodness it was bad.

    Although a little more than halfway through the book, I did start to enjoy it.  Mainly because they stopped being so stuffy and started being a little more real.

    There were a bunch of funny, underhanded proper comments, similar to something like “Why, doesn’t she look pretty today?” but really meaning that she’s super ugly and happens to have made herself look good for this moment.

    The overall story line: Daughters find people to become their husbands.

    Done.

    I just couldn’t handle it.

    But it’s a classic and I already know some of you are going to agree with me while others are like shouting at the screen in frustration at my review.

    So tell me your thoughts on Pride and Prejudice!

    Thanks for reading,

    Rebecca @ Love at First Book
