Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
reviewed by Anne
I've been a bookworm for as long as I can remember and Pride and Prejudice, written by Jane Austen, is one of my favorite books.
Austen primarily follows the love story of the lively Elizabeth Bennet and the cold-mannered, arrogant Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy.
This novel will appeal to both casual and serious readers, for the characters are varied and real, the dialogue is engaging and sprinkled with comical moments, and the story is intertwined with a message of the follies of pride and (surprise!) prejudice. It is important to note, however, that the novel is likely intended for more advanced readers. All in all, Pride and Prejudice is a witty, pleasant novel that has remained a beloved classic for a reason. Read it!
