Spoiler alert: I just summed up every Austen novel.
If you like the romance of older times and gentlemen and ladies, it's a good book for you!
You would think that it is representative of what is to follow; and to an extent, I would agree, but not really. It is just a very tiny glimpse of the mastery that Austen has over her craft. I could rave endlessly about the excellent plotting, or characterization, or even about how Austen's wit and the wisdom reflects in the narrative. But I realize that anything that has to be said about this book, has already been said, in much fancier language than I can ever hope to express.
Nonetheless, I am not going to let that stop me from gushing over it, because this has been more than just a book for me - it has been an experience - a very special one.
It is special for many reasons - for one, the language is delightful beyond comparison. I used to be intimidated by old texts as they are often dry and difficult to read, but I truly loved the way some words are used in this book, and wished language would still be dealt with in the same manner. But I also wonder - is it really the language of the era, or a superior skill of presentation that Austen possessed?
And secondly, I am amazed at how relatable and relevant this book is (even after 200 years of it being written!). The characters are interesting, the family dynamic is amusing, and kind of all over the place (but that is really how it is with all of us) - there's love, loyalty, concern, annoyance, and exasperation even!Read more ›

Pride & Prejudice is a witty and romantic book. A great read on a rainy day!Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
The illustrations are not very good, apart from that, perfect.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
Difficult read. Austen's focus was and is on female emotions.
A victim of her time, of course, but then so are most modern readers.
I love the fact that I can get access to a classic in a form which is readable to me. There's little else to say.Published 3 months ago by Cathy
