Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Jane Austen’s beloved classic opens with this witty and very memorable line: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” With all the twists and turns of a soap opera, Pride and Prejudice chronicles the drama that ensues when the wealthy bachelor Mr. Darcy moves close to the Bennet family home in the English countryside. The news of his arrival sends the socially ambitious Mrs. Bennet-whose main concern is finding suitable matches for her five daughters-into overdrive.

The book’s main character, the high-spirited Elizabeth Bennet, is a strikingly modern heroine: a woman who refuses to lower her expectations or transform herself to suit society’s norms. Austen’s novel achieves a remarkable balance, serving up barbed criticism of the obsession with money, status, and matrimony even as it draws us into a swoon-worthy love story. At its heart, Pride and Prejudice is a romantic comedy, and a darned great one at that. It’s so much fun to turn the pages and wonder about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy: Will they or won’t they overcome their excessive pride and initial prejudices to make a happily-ever-after connection?

- Wonderful love story4 star

I thought the movie was great until I read the book. The insights into everybody’s motives and inner thoughts was enjoyable. Some of the dialect makes it a bit harder to read but the gist of the text is eventually understood.

- One of her best5 star

It’s Jane Austen, whats not to like.

- Loved the book5 star

Loved the book

- Continues to delight5 star

There is a reason Pride & Prejudice is such a beloved classic. The writing simply holds up, and I enjoy it more with each re-reading

- Pride and Prejudice5 star

In Austen’s premier work , she displays the sagacity of a keen perception of human nature. In its foibles, its propensity to error, it’s hope against all reasonable hope, humankind is illumined with flair, wit and perennial tongue -in-cheek humor that continues to surprise, delight and enthrall young and old, generation after generation.

- mediocre at best2 star

No idea how this superficial and unoriginal book became a classic. Plot quality of a cheap daytime soap opera on American TV in the 1990s.

- Yes read it!5 star

Favorite book, favorite movie! Great read! Great watch!

- Absolutely Incredible5 star

Obviously this book is amazing, I feel like I’m super late to reading this since it came out 200 years ago, but there’s no doubt this book is so popular. I love the growth development each character experienced throughout the entire book. My favorite character was Mr. Bennet because he was so logical in all his decisions, my least favorite was probably Lydia and Wickham. Read the book to find out why! I definitely recommend it, and get a notepad or on your notes write down each word you don’t understand, to expand your vocabulary! <3

- Great classic!3 star

It was a very tough read but I’m glad I got through it. The storyline was great but it definitely dragged in some parts.

- Pride and Prejudice5 star

This book is absolutely perfect and spectacular! There are very few books which contain such amazing stories. I have already read it several times and I never grew tired or repeatedly reading it!

Decided to read a classic and am now obsessed! You will be surprised by how much you will be drawn into the story!!!

- Leaves you with wanting more5 star

I dare say that this book is now my favorite, I love it and it makes me have more love to it the fact that is not like other romantic stories which I am not a great fan of, thank you.

- Satisfying conclusion4 star

I would have liked to see more vivid descriptions, if I had been Austen’s beta reader. But overall, a good read.

- A Classic for a reason5 star

I’m always happy to read this charming book. It’s cleverly written dialogues & script keeps me coming back to it. The movies made of it hold nothing to the author’s skillful ability to describe characters’s thoughts & dialogue!

- Exception Book5 star

This has instantly become my favorite book and I will recommend it to anyone. While some of the words were advanced, it was a great vocabulary lesson, as I learned many new words. Wonderful book, wonderful characters. Well done Jane Austen.

- LOVED IT5 star

This is by far the most beautiful book I’ve ever read. Totally fell in love with every detail, the lively Lizzy Bennet and socially awkward Mr Darcy. I don’t think I’ll ever find a book as wonderful and heartwarming as pride and prejudice.

- Pride And Prejudice5 star

:)

- Great read5 star

Lovely. Just lovely.

- A must read5 star

This book was the most captivating book I have read in a while. I wanted to read it because it’s a classic, and I have never seen the movie so I didn’t know what it was about. So glad I read this before watching the movie. This kept me anxious to read every day! What an incredibly well written book.

- Wow, where do I even begin?5 star

This book really is incredible, by far my favorite. Although at times I find the old language a bit hard to understand, (supplemented with the movies, it's easier to pick up on sarcasm) I adore this book. The romance is so sweet and so frank, and each character is the quintessential character of their kind. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Please go and read it!! You will not be disappointed!

- READ THIS5 star

I have an unholy obsession with this book...it is soooooooofoffofofofoofefokmkv amazing. If you’re reading this you better read this novel I swear.

- Pride and Prejudice4 star

Good book. Slow beginning, but became more interesting about a third of the way through. Jane Eyre was a better read in my opinion.

- 200 years later it’s still amazing.5 star

200 years since it was published and we are still reading it. The reason: It’s just good. I’ve read it four times and will probably read it again soon to fall in love again with Elizabeth, laugh at Mr Collins, and marvel at how emotionally stunted Mr Darcy is. Seriously. The whole book could be a leaflet if he was more emotionally intelligent. It’s a time capsule from a different world and even though I’m a guy who works with his hands (doubt I was ever her ideal demographic) Austen’s work holds a special place in my heart.

- To those saying it’s boring...5 star

Not trying to be rude, but... Just because your literary skills are poor, doesn’t mean a book is boring or bad, it just means that you need to work on expanding your vocabulary and you need to start reading more. You can’t say a book is bad just because you can’t read it. I’m my own personal opinion, Jane Austen’s writing is beautiful and worth reading. Thanks.

- Great Book5 star

Amazing Story.

- Love It!5 star

This has become my all-time favorite classic book ever since I’ve read it five years ago. I’ve read it and watched the movies multiple times. I can’t recommend it enough.

- It’s Okay (As a Teen)4 star

I’m pretty young, and not used to reading books like this. It was kind of hard to understand at first, but once I got the hang of it, it was a fun read!! Reading it seemed to drag on a little, but I tend to be impatient, so don’t take my word for it.

- Wow1 star

I was very surprised at how TERRIBLE this book was. Even Elmo was better. So I will say it once and once only. The amount of boringness in this book is ASTRONOMICAL

- ac/dc - T.N.T1 star

this book was really bad, very boring, and has a disgusting amount of details.check out T.N.T by ac/dc

- Not as exciting as I was expecting but it was written very well2 star

I had to read this for school and my teacher made it sound like this book was gonna be so interesting and drama-filled but most of the book was very predictable with no big plot twists. But some parts were good and I like the way it was written

- More words than story2 star

I really enjoyed the beginning, but then the book just took too long. Interesting story, I guess, but eventually there was more description than character development and action. If you’re looking for a book like this with more action, I would recommend Jane Eyre. No offense to anyone who likes this book!

Mom Incognito - Great book!5 star

I didn’t know what to expect when I started this book. I heard of this title a long time ago but thought it was about something different...boring actually.... but I was quite surprised after I started it that I couldn’t put it down. I loved the old language, sometimes having to re-read a paragraph to understand what I just read. I would definitely recommend it. It was a great read.

Acocotli - Pride & Prejudice5 star

Simply stands the test of time, and remains a glimpse into the manners of an age and an England before the inevitable degradation of industrialization. An annual read. Delightful!

Cakey347 - Tip for readers5 star

I love this story with all my heart, it really just satisfies my soul! •For everyone who doesn’t like it because you don’t understand Old English, just use a dictionary (or for apple, hold down on the word and press “look up”) it’s not that hard and it’s worth it to broaden your vocabulary and learn historical facts! Honestly it’s easy enough to follow, so don’t be afraid, it’s 100% worth it!

shiherwl - great5 star

What is a great book!

Mrs Aakash - Pride and prejudice5 star

An excellent experience to read this book! It is amazing how the characters unfold and the clarity with which their feelings are described are touching and so real. Relatable even in the 21st century!

Karl Odinson - Surely a classic5 star

Who am I to give such a book any less than 5 stars? If you can get through all the back and forth about this man and that manor etc, there are some gems to be found here. Sure, I was required to read it for my university class and I will never read it again. That being said I do not regret it. And I am glad I finally got through it so I can read a good science fiction or fantasy novel.

Gyroblack - Not my favorite3 star

I couldn't relate much with the characters and I didn't see much spark between the two leads... I was really into the novel however I wouldn't recommend it as the best of romance.

rassabee - Great book! Love it!4 star

It's a really good book to keep you busy for a couple of weeks. And since it's not written in modern english (and english is not even my first language), it was a little hard for me to understand some parts... But overall it's a great book.

JulieHince - Beautiful5 star

This is one of the most beautifully written love stories of British litterature. It is delicate, sensitive, fresh, and true. Funny, exhuberant, and unpredictable, I so very recommend it. If you have read it and enjoyed it as much as I, you might also love Sense and Sensibility (same author). Wuthering Heights as well as Jane Eyre, two of my favourite books, are also masterpieces and are written by the Brontë sisters. Enjoy!

Gérard G - Pride and Prejudice4 star

Very interesting classic of the English literature, especially to know more about customs and patterns of life in England before the era of TV, internet and so on...

I was told a long time a ago that this book is good but I resisted in reading probably to many people told me to read it, but now I truly was engrossed in it and enjoyed reading immensely.

I have been reading this book at least once a year for the last decade. I still get emotionally attached to the characters, and it brings a peacefulness while I read it. I recommend it for any historical romance enthusiasts.

seirona - Timeless Classic5 star

Reading this book for the millionth time (except on my iPhone this time) has made me appreciate it even more. A classic love story, I would rather read this book than any other love story that came out in the past 10 years. Jane Austen's writing might be hard to understand for some people but the story is so good that it can be easily overlooked. I highly recommend it! Whether you are young or old, read it and fall in love with a timeless classic.

It was really unexpected. I have never seen the movie and thought rather badly of this book (without any valable reasons I admit). But I absolutely loved it! It have it all, it is readable (for those of you out there who are nervous like I was), the characters have a profondness that is very suprising and the story itself is quite fantastic! It is a must read!

I love this book! The love that Mr.Darcy shows throughout and the spunk of Lizzy, makes it one of the best live stories of all time. Not to mention her ridiculous mother....

I don't think I have enjoyed any novel as much as this. Such a beautiful and intelligent plot. I found the old-English language made it a little difficult to read at first but it gets easier and is worth sticking it out. A must read.

FashyEagle - Great book5 star

This book is so worth the time it takes to read, if you're discouraged by the size of a book, think of it as reading two amazing books, because 2 books are necessary to compare to this. The Great Gatsby is the only other book I've enjoyed this much.

Sound of Kookaburras - More enjoyable every time I read it5 star

A little bit of history, a little bit of vocabulary, wonderful characters with so much realism. Knowing the endings simply makes the journey to get there more pleasurable. I recently watched the Keira Knightley film (awful) and again watched the Colin Firth tv series (so true to the book), so I thought it was time I read the book again. Whilst reading I found a treatise online regarding transport in Jane Austen’s time, which added to my enjoyment and knowledge. I understood what a phaeton was, and a chaise and a postillion.

IcePrincess123 - An excellent read!5 star

Jane Austen has a particular way with the olde English language. She writes in such a way that one has to focus while reading, however it is really worth the effort to get the most out of each scene. First impressions so easily made and so difficult to alter. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and plan on reading other works in her catalogue. Thank you Jane. Well done.🎶💞

hpham1 - Nothing happening3 star

Pride & prejudice is so hard to understand! I find myself reading a sentence 4 times just to figure out what it means. I'm halfway through the book, and Elizabeth still barely knows Darcy. There's a new character every five pages and way too many proposals.

Eva!!!!!!!!!! - Pride and Prejudice review3 star

Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" is a wonderful, thrilling, heartbreaking book from cover to cover. Although this book is difficult to understand, because even though it is in Old English, the story's plot is heartwarming, and interesting. The main reason I rated it 3/5 is because I couldn't make out the text inside the book. Overall I loved this book. Thanks Jane Austen!!! (I like Lizzy)

Dees1979 - Pride and prejudice5 star

Absolutely loved it. I want a Mr Darcy!!

maxandspot - Austen's Pride and Prejudice3 star

It strikes me that "teen gossip about boys' and the adolescent angst of working out 'who's who in the zoo' have not changed. Nor has the concept of choosing a societally acceptable partner. Papered over the gender-repressive institutions of the day, Pride and Prejudice almost begs to be read aloud like Shakespeare. Wonderfully theatrical characters. Enjoy!

We Love You Drizzy. - Pride and Prejudice5 star

The first half of the book, although I did enjoy, I found a little slow. The second half of the book makes it well worth the read. Elizabeth Bennet is a brilliant female character, her only fault and constant companion being prejudice, which influences how we view certain characters from the very beginning. Mr Darcy is much loved (by the end) because of his growth in character and surprising reveal of character. However his fault, pride, could now be credited to being antisocial and uncomfortable in social situations, thus because of his large wealth, it is assumed to be pride. There are subtle themes of sexism in the book, though that is to be expected in a book written in a time such as this, but odd considering the strong female characters and their treatment, for example; when Mr Darcy learns that Elizabeth is aware that he paid a large sum to Mr Wickham for Lydia’s marriage, he immediately assumes it was Mrs Gardiner who told her, and though it was, it could easily have been Mr Gardiner, as he is just as close with Elizabeth. This being so subtle, that it may suggest that Jane Austen (the author) may have been prejudiced herself. Overall, it was a great read, I recommend.

Adora mordi - Fantastic5 star

The joys this book brings is really superior. It doesn't only "happy occassions", but offers a deeper, more intense story in which you are left questioning the outcome. Honestly a great work of literature and would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a tale with a happy ending and endearing characters.

DiNoSaUrCaT - Just a really fun book in general5 star

This book is absolutely magnificent, from the first word all the way to the last it hooks you and keeps you thinking, all the time of Mr. Darcy and Miss. Bennet. Beutifully paced, amazing characters and just enoght tension to leave you wanting more. I reccomend this to 12+ and ALL people 12+.

The beginning was rather slow and tedious but as you prevail through the course of the book, the tension and longing to understand Miss Bennet and Mr Darcy’s feelings for one another becomes almost unbearable to the point in which it is always on your mind. It has truly revolutionised my ideas of romance.

brawgowfer - Chawton5 star

Providing a review of this most famous novel by Jane Austen would be audacious indeed, but let me state that my interest in Miss Austen's work was sparked by my recent visit to her house in Chawton. I enjoyed reading (perhaps re-reading) the novel so greatly, that I drew out the experience by rationing my sessions, absorbing and savouring the skills of this infinitely accomplished author. Thank you Miss Austen.

Listensaberdeen - Gloriously good read5 star

I return to this novel every few years and find more detail within than I can recall from previous visitations. Primarily it is the wonderful exchanges between the characters which I find so enjoyable and rich. The phrasing is extraordinary and so descriptively rich, beyond anything heard or written today, that it takes me a few chapters to adjust to the tone and detail in the narrative. It's wonderful and so enriching.

Chapters 7, 8, 9 are midding completely, the reading style doesn’t flow easy. When listening the book doesn’t keep playing like music does when the device goes to sleep but stops meaning you have to keep touching the screen and there isn’t easy to listen to when wanting to rest.

A real classic. It's an addictive read. Having re-read it again on my iPad I found richer understanding of it later in life and in such comfort of a 'thin' book! A gem for romantics and it teaches delayed gratification, a couple of centuries on.

Although it starts off slow, by the end the characters and story elements wind together into a beautiful tapestry.

NattttyNatNat - Amazing5 star

Decided to delete social media and spend the quarantine getting back into books. I picked this one and am so so glad I did. Such a page turner! I found myself so internally excited at certain points could not put it down. It was like stepping into a time machine! I also really enjoyed the convenience of Apple Books allowing you to so easily display word definitions with out truly interrupting the read.

From_the_Ashes - Ok so hear me out5 star

I know that this is a classic, so the rest of the teenagers out there are thinking ‘boring!’ But hear me out. This is pretty much our lives! Sure it’s a bit formal and chaste, but this is so classic that it became a stereotype that we used in elementary and middle schools (remember the ‘you hate her, and she hates you so you guys are totally made for each other’ thing) I mean you will never regret reading this book in the long run. Maybe you’ll regret reading it at a certain time, but you can’t hate it. Unless you’re too dumb to get the humor, then go ahead.

sanderwang525 - Great book!5 star

I stopped the reading once at my junior year. And I do wish I have read the book before I entered the university. It’s really good book about pride and prejudice.

I don’t read for pleasure but it was surprising how difficult I found myself to put down,

chepotle831 - Love story with complications4 star

I really loved the story even though I am not one to dive into romance books. This book offered some good love stories: one happy at the beginning, one with a rocky middle story and of course the one that was unexpected. I really liked this novel and it kind of inspired me to go looking for love.

A literary Classic!

Barrel racer 260 - Beautiful4 star

The English it’s written is has never been my strength in reading, but the more I read the easier it was to understand, and the outcome was a beautiful story of two very different people. Very happy I finally read the story I’ve heard so much about.

Unzenator - Masterpiece5 star

It’s a classic for a reason! Truly one of the best books I have ever read.

MustardQueen - Pride and Prejudice5 star

The romantic aspect of the book is what interested me at first, but the drama and the characters growing and learning is what sucked me into their world. The detail describing the place or the people and their emotions make you feel as if you are there with the characters. The relationship between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy is something you read about and don’t want to stop reading about. The passion and fire between the two is something I hope to have.

Cheshire.TV - LIFE CHANGING5 star

Not to be dramatic, but Pride and Prejudice is the greatest book of all time, and you have not truly lived until reading it. I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the words, which laid the foundation for my love of Jane Austen. It was too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew It had begun.

trust me i'm relevant - I wish I could wipe my own memory so I could read it for the first time again5 star

This is one of those books that makes you truly feel invested. One of those books that makes you look at the themes within it, in this case love, personal will, and duty, at work in your own life. READ IT.

Data science developer - PTSD from reading P&P - Male/16(at time of reading)1 star

Dear Mr Darcy, Thank you for your detailed account of your adventures in love. Where do I start? I mean it’s not a bad book, from a historical fiction setting perspective... but the love story and the girl chit-chats were a bit much for the 16 year old me. Would not recommend for males readers... Would recommend Pride and Prejudice:Zombies for male readers, adds a little bit of flavor to essentially the same story line! Sincerely, Mr Bingley

ibrakeforgoats - A classic example of love.5 star

This book reminded me so much in style and storyline of Little Women, which is one of my all-tome favorites. There is a type of relationship for everyone in this book, and I see my own self and relationship relating best to Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. It was a great read, and I loved being able to enjoy it on my phone or at home seamlessly.

bigred201323 - Love it5 star

For those who say it is utter garbage, are stupid and don’t understand it from Janes view. Utter garbage Is no where near what they say. I love this book and it’s 1 of the best out there. You don’t have to be sophisticated to understand it, but if you say it’s utter garbage after reading it... you are just 100% stupid. This is a classic book. Very well written and very well presented

Plot? Uninteresting. Characters? Flat. Moral? Beaten into the reader like a black man’s wife.

markie.annn - beyond incredible!!!5 star

My I start by saying only recently have i aquired a true taste for reading. Upon starting pride and prejudice i was nearly sure i’d bitten off more than I could chew… but the further i read, the less i hoped it to end. Absolutely beautifuly writen, and will leave you biting at your nails-just as mine have suffered. As it has aged there apears to be (at least in my opinion) a sarcastic tone in many a charecter loved, something i believe actually adds to the relatibility of such a strong work. Officially on my top 10 list. If you have trouble with the dialog i’d suggest to listen while you read, you can find free audio on youtube.

Nothing bad to say, I read this book at least once a year.

grubxjfv gyujbx - Concentration!5 star

It took a lot of concentration to read the old style writing, but it was worth it! It was exciting to be able to catch the subtle nuances.

Lesser Steve - Delightful5 star

The writing and characterization are delicious. I especially love the dry wit of Mr. Bennet and hilarious flattery and naked social parasitism of Mr. Collins. Bennet joking about how fond he is of Wickham: “He is as fine a fellow as I ever saw. He simpers and smirks and makes love to us all. I am prodigiously proud of him.” Delightful. I reread many passages several times just to savor such writing, as well as frank mockery of Mr. Collins, Lady Catherine and other worthies.

Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice Comments

About Jane Austen Wiki

Jane Austen (; 16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism, humour, and social commentary, have long earned her acclaim among critics, scholars, and popular audiences alike.With the publication of Sense and ...
