I've read Pride and Prejudice so many times but every time I do I always find stuff I miss. Elizabeth Bennet's and Mr. Darcy's love story is better then Romeo and Juliet.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. However little known the feeling or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighborhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.”

Enter the world of the Miss Bennets, the amiable Mr. Bingley, the loved by most, Mr. Wickham, The silly headed clergyman, Mr. Collins; and the proud Mr. Darcy. This world is full of women in dresses, and men in top hats, pride and prejudice, broken hearts and wit, scandal and romance, money and love. Dive into the world where you may not want to trust your first impressions; as the saying goes, it’s more than meets the eye.

I have the pleasure of teaching a class on Jane Austen next month, and I am so thrilled! This has been one of my long-time
favorites: it's witty, clever, and so ahead of it's time. The characters in Pride and Prejudice are strong and delightful; they are fully developed and round, so much so that Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy are commonly known in the world of literature. Jane Austen is a brilliant writer, and her satire sharp and humorous. This is a book you will read over and over again, it is so delicious.

As a Jane Austen fan I am never disappointed with 'Pride and Prejudice'. Because this novel has been recreated on film, new readers may be surprised at how much is altered or left out of the film versions for Hollywood theatrical purposes. Nobly, Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' continues to stand on its own with excellent time period dialogue, human drama, and picturesque description.

Pride & Prejudice is a love story, but not the story I was expecting. Elizabeth is a strong female character who is sure of herself and able to speak her mind without shyness - that is where her most genuine beauty lies. I want to be like Elizabeth. Darcy is a man who works very hard to overcome himself to present himself to her as a worthy partner. That is love.

Pride & Prejudice is surprisingly readable, modern, practical, and insightful. It isn't fussy, the language isn't difficult, and it isn't hard to follow. Read it today if you haven't read it before. I know I'll be reading it again and again.
