Synopsis:Pride and Prejudice is essentially a love story complete with misunderstandings written in elegant and antiquated prose by Jane Austen. An ironic look at society’s attitude towards matrimony. A mother’s desperation to get her daughters married to ‘eligible bachelors’.Once Netherfield Park is let, the life of Elizabeth Bennet, the protagonist an her family changes forever.
My Review:Austen’s creations of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy formed one of the most iconic couples of all time.In case you find the Georgian/old-fashioned style of writing tedious you might have trouble liking this book but otherwise there is nothing to dislike about this all-time favorite.
If you have lost your joy de vivre it’s very likely that you will find it somewhere in the middle of this book.
P.S The 1995 BBC adaptation of the movie is a MUST-WATCH as well! Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle do total justice to the characters of Darcy and Elizabeth.
