Review

This edition of the book is great as the author's original spelling has been left unchanged, and it's not full of appendixes and notes. 5 Star Amazon Reviewer This edition has good quality paper, is well laid out, nice clear print (not too small), and is very well bound 5 Star Amazon Reviewer I really like the style of this book. The hardback, has a nice texture, and reminds me of one of those books that were around in the 'Pride and Prejudice' time period (old-fashioned, vintage).. i like that :) I was very pleased with the useful notes and chronology information etc within this version, has helped me a lot in understanding, further, this story etc. Was a very good purchase for a very good price. 5 Star Amazon Reviewer --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

Jane Austen's classic novel is expertly narrated by Josephine Bailey, whose eloquent presentation captures all the exquisite restraint and elegance of Austen's prose. Undaunted by a large cast that is almost constantly engaged in dialogue, Bailey has impeccable timing as she brings beloved scenes to life. Her insightful narration conveys all the depth and detail of Austen's believable characters, including pert, sometimes saucy Elizabeth; amiable Jane; the initially stiff Mr. Darcy; and the amicable Mr. Bingley. Less central characters (vulgar Mrs. Bennet, ungovernable Lydia, moralizing Mary) are equally well done. The spirited exchange between Elizabeth and Lady Catherine de Bourgh as dramatized by Bailey is beyond compare. This fine production makes a persuasive case that Austen is best enjoyed unabridged.

A classic piece. Timely. Able to be read every year, it is so well written. One novel I have in my library that I go back to read on some cold winter days, when I am feeling like a "pick me up" is in order. Jane Austen novels are sure to throw you into life in the late 1700's. Definitely a classic read.

I had tried to read this numerous times as a kid, teen, early twenties, and the language always got to me. This si the first time I've made it all the way through, and it is a fascinating insight into some of the conventions of the Regency era. I've read various fanfiction in various fandoms set in the Regency era, so this was a bit of a "where a lot of that came from" revelation.

Not as good as I thought it would be. Almost put it down when she becomes a wimp and doesn't say what she is really thinking, Then I remembered the times and thought maybe she can't because that is not proper. I could never have lived in that time I'm far too outspoken!

As usual, Austen's heroine is insufferable. A great read if you love self-involved female protagonists coupled with predictable love stories and cliche endings.

Spoiler alert: I just summed up every Austen novel.

This book has a beautiful cover. As well as a ribbon on the inside to mark your page. I have already started reading it, I love the index at the back which gives a thorough explanation to some of the phrases and words that I don't quiet understand. Also gave a lovely description of jane austins life.

I first wanted to read this book because I watched the mini-series and missed on of the episodes. I had to find out what happened. Since buying the book I have read it over 15 times over the course of about 10 or more years. Every time I read it there is some detail I didn't notice before and it made me appreciate the mini-series even more. However, it made me think the more recent movie was totally inadequate and a joke.

If you like the romance of older times and gentlemen and ladies, it's a good book for you!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." - Thus begins Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners. If you notice, the very first sentence itself is a masterpiece of tongue-in-cheek social commentary, and instantly paints a picture of the socio-cultural situation of the era.

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!

Stands up. Simple and direct, great characterization, complex characters. I read it like the psychological insight covered the money plot that is in so many novels where the characters are not as well done.
