Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, set in early nineteenth century England, follows twenty year old Elizabeth Bennet and her four sisters as her parents try to get them all married as soon as possible - for strictly social and economic reasons. Things get more complicated when her older sister Jane falls in love with Mr. Bingley, a much richer new neighbor, and Elizabeth herself falls for Bingley’s friend, the equally rich Mr. Darcy. Despite being over two centuries old, Austen’s characters and the relationships they form are still as authentic and incredibly relatable as they were when this well-known and loved classic was first published. What girl around Elizabeth’s age doesn’t have a family she thinks is totally embarrassing or a guy like Mr. Darcy in her life? With Austen’s subtly sarcastic, irony-filled writing style and exploration of universally important themes like love, marriage, family, wealth, and social status, it’s no surprise that Pride and Prejudice has been read and thoroughly enjoyed for generations and continues to be relevant today.

First, I'll begin with a review of the story. So, for those of us who enjoy English literature, this is definitely a must-read. I have to say that Jane Austen portrays the individual personalities of her characters very well and makes them very believable. The plot is realistic, and the prose is highly witty and delicate; I can tell that Austen gave her highest effort into this work. Overall, I would give the story itself a 5/5 rating. This is certainly an excellent read! Next (and this is probably what the Nook users are looking for), there is the quality of this particular edition for the Nook. This edition is quite enjoyable; I prefer this copy over most other digital versions. There are, however, quite frequently, minor, unbothersome errors. At least one or two can be found every third page or so, and they mostly have to do with omission of marks such as commas, dashes, accents, or semicolons, or the replacement of one of these for another. Even so, even the most obsessive-compulsive and particular of people will likely not initially notice these, since they don't interrupt the flow of the story and are quite low-profile. The most common errors I've found are omission of italics on certain words or phrases, absence of accents on letters of words belonging to foreign languages (such as the French "tte--tte), omission of the occasional dash, and substitution of a semicolon for a comma, or vice-versa. Overall, I'd give this particular edition for Nook a 4/5 rating. I hope this review answered your questions! Thanks for reading!

I chose to re read this as my book club watched the movie and will discuss both. It did take a while to reacclimate to Austens language and style but enjoyed the characters humor and true pride and prejudice. A story of moral courage that should be adhered to today.

This was the first Jane Austen book l read, at age ten, and l loved it! I have gone on to read Emma, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility and Lady Susan. Almost all of these titles fascinated and entertained me, but none so much as Pride and Prejudice. The story was surprisingly easy to comprehend and never tiresome. I am eighteen now, and this boik still captivates me. Elizabeth Bennet, the leading female, is a strong character,but weak enough that one can relate to and feel for her. Austen did not belive in marrying for fortune only, a difficult thing for a woman without much wealth. The story is charming and no matter your age, l am sure you will enjoy it.
