Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen read online review & book description:

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Jane Austen’s beloved classic opens with this witty and very memorable line: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” With all the twists and turns of a soap opera, Pride and Prejudice chronicles the drama that ensues when the wealthy bachelor Mr. Darcy moves close to the Bennet family home in the English countryside. The news of his arrival sends the socially ambitious Mrs. Bennet-whose main concern is finding suitable matches for her five daughters-into overdrive.

The book’s main character, the high-spirited Elizabeth Bennet, is a strikingly modern heroine: a woman who refuses to lower her expectations or transform herself to suit society’s norms. Austen’s novel achieves a remarkable balance, serving up barbed criticism of the obsession with money, status, and matrimony even as it draws us into a swoon-worthy love story. At its heart, Pride and Prejudice is a romantic comedy, and a darned great one at that. It’s so much fun to turn the pages and wonder about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy: Will they or won’t they overcome their excessive pride and initial prejudices to make a happily-ever-after connection?

    By reviews from an 18y/o🤪
    I’m not sure what words to use in describing the experience of reading this book other than lovely and exceedingly pleasant. Unlike other books, this one offers an infinite amount of learning, whether regarding to impressive vocabulary or history in general. I read this novel with a constant smile and intense focus; I could never put it down! This is a classic for good reason. Would beyond recommend to young adults especially.

    I’m just beginning to read the classics and this was a very interesting start. I loved how Austen had a perfect mix between plot and moral. The character development was great and the protagonists are some of the most interesting characters I have read about.

    By Monsieur Homme
    Perhaps my favorite Jane Austen novel. Her sly wit and true understanding of human nature are paramount. A beautiful story.
  • Wonderful love story

    By Old2Newbookie
    I thought the movie was great until I read the book. The insights into everybody’s motives and inner thoughts was enjoyable. Some of the dialect makes it a bit harder to read but the gist of the text is eventually understood.
