This annotated book contains an excellent chronology of events and some pretty basic maps. The introduction is well-worded and worth reading. If you have not read Pride and Prejudice already, then do not read this book first. The extra information disrupts the story too often. However, if you have already read and love the book, then this annotated book will offer additional insight that will make your next reading a bit more enjoyable (if that's possible).

This annotated editon of Austen's Pride and Prejudice is extensively researched. I teach AP Literature and used this book as a guide to help my students understand and envision the era and its customs. Very nice to have this on Nook Color!

I absolutely LOVE Pride and Prejudice...really, what's not to love. David Shapard's annotations make it a delight to read this novel with clarity of mind and understanding for the time period. Also, thoroughly enjoyed the drawings with explanations. The descriptions related to the influences of Jane Austen when writing the novel were very insightful. BRAVO!!!!! I look forward to additional annotated versions of Jane Austen's wonderful novels. Highly recommend reading this version of the novel.

It had been a long time since I read any Jane Austen, and I purchased this book so as to immerse myself in the life and times of the novel. Reading David M. Shapard's introduction and notes, side-by-side along with the novel as I went through it, increased my understanding and appreciation immeasurably. This book is a must for those who want a truly accurate account - of the novel, the author and the times. I now am reading all of Austen's works and have a much keener feel for the content.

Often times in works of literature, it is not a compelling plot or exciting setting that draws the reader in, but rather the author's presentation of characters. Jane Austen, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers of her time, does just that in a novel I recently read called "Pride and Prejudice." Characters such as Elizabeth Bennett develop throughout the story and keep the reader interested as to what comes next. I personally am not intrigued by love affairs and related drama, but I must admit at times (don't tell anyone) that I thirsted to see what would happen next between Elizabeth and Darcy. This novel also doubles as a great argumentative piece, as readers can not help but have an opinion regarding what every character says and does versus what they should have said and should have done. Austen grew up in this sort of atmosphere where marriage was such a big priority and her experience shows as the detail is quite notable. All in all, even if the topic isn't your cup of tea, Austen's style makes this book at the very least "readable."

As with most movies, there is some variance from the book but all in all it depicted the novel well
