Synopsis (From Goodreads)
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”
So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners–one of the most popular novels of all time–that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues.
Honestly what could I say about this book that hasn’t already been said? Nothing, because it is a classic, a beautiful classic that has been read and loved for many years.
This was my third reading of Jane Austen beloved novel of a cat and mouse romance, Pride and Prejudice. It is basically as the title exclaims, full of pride and prejudices that pretty much creates a series of misunderstood reactions, and decisions that have lasting repercussions!
I really took the re-read slowly, and just enjoyed every minute of it, instead of the quick devours my previous readings were. It was the greatest decision ever. The slow progress gave me a chance to pick up on nuances I hadn’t realized before, and though I knew how the story ended, it still felt like a brand new book.
Next time you pick up Pride and Prejudices, take your time and really get into those nooks and crannies in the dialogue…you won’t regret it!
