I finally read this classic after all these years and all the versions of the book I have seen in mini series and movies. It was amazing to finally see the differences in this classic. I have read so many books in 2010 but this will stand out as I'm so glad I finally read it. I hope this year to take more time read the "classic" novels I missed reading while younger or maybe in school.

No novel in English has given more pleasure than Pride and Prejudice. Because it is one of the great works in our literature, critics in every generation reexamine and reinterpret it. But the rest of us simply fall in love with it—and with its wonderfully charming and intelligent heroine, Elizabeth Bennet.
We are captivated not only by the novels romantic suspense but also by the fascinations of the world we visit in its pages. The life of the English country gentry at the turn of the nineteenth century is made as real to us as our own, not only by Jane Austens wit and feeling but by her subtle observation of the way people behave in society and how we are true or treacherous to each other and ourselves.
