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?

Great book mr.Darcy Jane just it pulls you in and it’s like your in their world.😃😃😃
I can see why people would love it and why others would hate it It’s definitely a historical fiction book and is rather mundane It does allow one to see the elegance and flourish of the time but can be slow and even uninteresting Obviously if you like fast paced, action packed books with a lot of romance, this might not be the best for you But if you just want to sit down with a good book and you have a lot of time on your hands or you want to see what it was like during older times then this is a perfect selection Overall I found it surprisingly enjoyable and much less potent of a read than most classics are but it does get redundant and tiring at times
Not really interesting
I loved this book and it was easy to understand. It was very well written and kept me interested until the end.
This book is of course, a classic. Wonderful as always to read.
The writing was cool. I think the one with the zombies was cooler but this is fine too.
A wonderful read!
I’m not averse to writing from this time period, but finishing this book felt like torture. Characters felt flat and lifeless. To me, this is just a “pretty” book, with an embellished writing style and interesting insights into the time period, but the plot and characters just lacked depth or meaning. Also, I can’t exactly place why, but I found Elizabeth to be such an annoying main character. I know a lot of people like this book, but it was just not for me.
For a book considered one of the classics, this is one of the ones that are easier and more entertaining to read.
Most romantic novel written
A time of a classic. I wonder the hype about the book. It was one of the best books I’ve read. Would recommend to. Any friend.
Very enjoyable read! I love a good romance that is void of many sexual overtones! I would read this one again
A classic page-turner that’s a joy to read. Highly recommend it.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged, that a single woman in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a husband
Austen never fails, never misses, love the read!
I’m not sure what words to use in describing the experience of reading this book other than lovely and exceedingly pleasant. Unlike other books, this one offers an infinite amount of learning, whether regarding to impressive vocabulary or history in general. I read this novel with a constant smile and intense focus; I could never put it down! This is a classic for good reason. Would beyond recommend to young adults especially.
I wanted to reread my favorite book and still hold up today.
I seem to read this novel every 5 years or so. It’s one of my favorite reads!
I’m just beginning to read the classics and this was a very interesting start. I loved how Austen had a perfect mix between plot and moral. The character development was great and the protagonists are some of the most interesting characters I have read about.
Perhaps my favorite Jane Austen novel. Her sly wit and true understanding of human nature are paramount. A beautiful story.
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.
It’s Jane Austen, whats not to like.
Loved the book
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
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.
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.
Favorite book, favorite movie! Great read! Great watch!
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
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.
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!!!
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.
I would have liked to see more vivid descriptions, if I had been Austen’s beta reader. But overall, a good read.
That’s all. It’s just so good. The wit, the applicability that has persevered to modern times, all of it! I loooove this book!
Amazing!! Mr. Darcy tho😳😳😳😳💦🥵😏😼
Jane Austen is an elite author. 🤍
i loved reading this
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!
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.
I am retreading the Classics and this book is still as difficult to read as it was the last time. But...who can fault the Classics?
One of my favorite stories. Love it.
bloody el', it's a great book! god bless you jane austen
this book slaps.
Love love love everything about this book!!!

I recommend reading it before watching the movie!
I’m surprised that a book written so long ago could bring out so much emotion in me over 200 years later. Excellent.
An important historical piece of fiction written by an author ahead of her time.
Read the book!!!
As I kept reading it, I was getting roped into this amazing story by Jane Austen. Amazing!
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.
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!
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!
What is a great book！
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!
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.
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.
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.
Finally read this book and I devoured it!
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!
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.
This was a most lovely book to read😃
This book was amazing, I loved the writing,
Funny and entertaining!
This is my fav romance of all time :) I could not stop reading and highly recommend it!
Has anyone ever noticed that Ms. Tutweiller, from Suite Life On Deck, read this? HAHA
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.
This is my favourite Jane Austen book!!!
It was a good book. A little hard to follow at times due to the old english way of speaking, but I really liked how I got to know parts that were dropped with the movie.
This is one of my favorite books. It is a timeless classic. Jane Austen was a wonderful author and her books are a delight to read
This is a sad excuse for a book, every one should be burned!
The best book I've read so far! The old English takes a little getting used to but this book is completely worth it! The plot and characters make you feel as if you're in the book!
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....
Pride and prejudice is jane austens most well read famous novel. This classic tale shows how two lovers overcame the differences and misgivings in their class and character to live in happiness.
If you can get into the olde style language, you will be rewarded with great characters and twist of plot.
Great page turner.
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.
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.
I love the strory it relates now a days happening in the sociaty
Great book! Recommend it!
Enjoyed this book once I got into the characters
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.
Such a drama and scary
Absolutely love this book and read it quite often.
The romanticism in Jane Austen's art of writing makes me believe that should the characters be dull, I would still madly love it for the way in which she writes so beautifully.
I read it every year at Xmas then watch the mini series. Never fails to make me happy and wish that I might be another Mr Collins.
I noticed this was trending and remembered it being mentioned in a book about a guy who was failing his English exam because he had to read this book. He never finished it though. Poor Mikey.
A timeless tale that is thoroughly engaging and enjoyable to read!
Read this 3 decades ago….and now again. very soon after watching “bride and Prejudice” on WIN TV..Really enjoyed the book.
a great lesson for us all.
By far the best of the classics I have ever read. I never tire of the characters and enjoy reading it time and again.
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.🎶💞
Enjoyed the book imemsly Also my husbands name is Mr Darcy So I get pleasure reading of him
Really enjoyed this book. Only problem I had was that some names weren't included, eg: a street name was left blank or a line was in its place. Other than that it was great.
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.
A period romance, delightfully told. Jane Austen had a real perception of character. This is a truely good read.
Funny, charming, witty....can't believe that I haven't read Jane Austen before. Am reading Sense and sensibility next - I am hooked.
My favourite story of all time, such brilliant characters and such an accurate reflection of human nature! A true classic!
Honestly, one of the best books ever written! There should have been a sequel. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Best of all her novels.
This has jumped to my favourite of favourites. It was just magical the way it all unfolded in the end. Thank YOU Jane Austen xx
Delightful classical reading! Love this book!!!
Pride and prejudice is my all time favorite classic followed closely by sense and sensibility and David Copperfield by Charles Dickens. Mr Darcy...
I loved reading this book :)
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)
Absolutely loved it. I want a Mr Darcy!!
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!
I thought I ought to read an acknowledged classic, but didn't expect to LOL in several places and be in tears in others. Not just a chicks book after all!
Lollipop is an imbecile
This is a boring book that doesn't have anything to do with the title the end of this comment
Great Book! Full of excitement!
It was the most amazing journey
Absolutely adore them, my Elizabeth & Mr darcy
Timeless, witty, charming and sublime.
I absolutely loved this book so much! A wonderful story of a headstrong female! Cre
Probably the best book ever .
A simple yet captivating tale portraying love, misunderstandings and arrogance. What more can a girl want...
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.
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.
A fantastic read. Recommended.
Tbh I don’t even like romance, but I really liked the way the characters transformed throughout the story and all the drama that happened. The movie is so good too, the cinematography of it is so nice! I recommend this book a lot, 1000/10 :D
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+.
Always the best of reads
This book is amazing. You have to read it.
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.
Couldn’t stop reading it as soon as I started. Really engaging work
The novel is best practiced in this piece of art.
It was a good book but a little slow
This novel is one of my favourites of all time. I’m a big fan of Jane Austen novels. The book is beautifully paced. The characters are compelling, the romance is moving and the angst and tension is perfectly executed. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel and I look forward to reading more of her works in the future. I’m sure many others will enjoy this book and other Austen work.
Really easy to read and funny too
Timeless, classic, my favourite
Jane Austen at her witty peak.
I could not let go of this book!
This literary classic continues to warm heart with its good humour and intriguing ideas. Well-structured and beautifully written this novel remains a favourite.
Elizabeth bennet needs to chill
My favourite book, ever. I just love the underlying humour and the strength of characters. Brilliant.
i got aids
Absolutely fascinating first chapter, captured me right into the depths of the book and am sure I will take a great amount of concentration into the rest of the book!
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.
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.
A beautiful, timeless, book.
Honestly, Austen's Pride & Prejudice is simply irreplaceable. The story, the characters, the feel of the book, it's just amazing. Must read!!!!
A very enjoyable work.
Wonderful. Never have I enjoyed conversation both friendly and the latter of two people, and eagerly anticipated it's return as with Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth.
It is of a book that deserves the most loved. I am so much in love with this book.
We have all seen TV and film adaptations of this wonderful story but Jane Austen's written words are pure joy.
Great book. Greatest English writer!
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.
I just loved every chapter of this novel. It was thrilling and emotional and romantic. Can't wait to read more of Jane Austen. 😊
Such a lovely story
In tears. I will never tire of reading this book. I cannot count the number of times this makes. I am happily off to now watch the BBC adaptation with Colin Firth to add to my extreme happiness at this moment. If you've never experienced the delights of Pride and Prejudice. Read it now! You won't regret it.
I couldn't put it down, I got lost in the world of Lizzy and enjoyed every moment. One if the best romance books I've come across.
I've read this book so many times and still savour ever word as if I'm reading it for the first time. Glorious!
I had to read this for school but got so incredibly board of it I've skipped it and I'm googling about it instead!! It's ridiculously boring !!
English traditional romance=perfect
Imagine Bridget Jones in the 18th c and here is the story that formed many of the subplots in Helen Fieldings masterpiece Fall in and out of love with the protagonist and rediscover the rise of the female voice
Jane Austen is the reason I love classics! Pride and prejudice is one of my all time favourite books. Perfectly romantic! I love this book and I'm only 12! If that doesnt prove to people how good this book is, nothing will!
If you love a perfect love story, you will love pride and prejudice. I love it and I'm only 15, pride and prejudice is much better than fifty shades of grey. I'd prefer to have a mr darcy than mr grey!!!!!

Its a nice book
This book is a classic that I will most likely read again with an amazing story.
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.
Lovely. Just lovely.
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.
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!
A wonderful journey of human behavior and timeless love. A must read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have an unholy obsession with this book...it is soooooooofoffofofofoofefokmkv amazing. If you’re reading this you better read this novel I swear.
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 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.
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.
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.
This was such a good book and I really enjoyed it.
I am ten and this book is good and confusing
This book is Definitely worth reading till the end
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.
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
this book was really bad, very boring, and has a disgusting amount of details.check out T.N.T by ac/dc
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
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!
I am twelve and this book is so riveting. Love it!
Thoroughly enjoyed this classic and can’t recommend it enough.
This was my first book I ever read by Austen and I LOVE IT.
Although it starts off slow, by the end the characters and story elements wind together into a beautiful tapestry.
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.
Such a page turning classic! Good quarantine read
I DONT understand the book I started to read like the first couple pages I don’t understand what’s going on at all can someone help me plzzzzz
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.
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,
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.
Great book. Highly recommend
A literary Classic!
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.
It’s a classic for a reason! Truly one of the best books I have ever read.
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.
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.
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.
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
I had to read this for my English class.To sum it up it was a waste of time. Nothing here that I learned made me want to time travel for my live regrets
Interesting book it mocks the idea of marriage for wealth 👰🏼🤵🏼=💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💵💴💶💷💰💰💰💰💸💵💳💰💵💶💶💴💵💳💴
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.
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.
And it’s FREE!
I cannot express how beautiful Jane Austen’s writing style and how deep her insights are. Read and learn my friends, read and learn.

She wrote two other novels—Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818—and began another, eventually titled Sanditon,....
