Elizabeth Bennet, the second eldest of five daughters whom Mrs Bennett is anxious to dispose of in marriage, is the most intelligent and delightful of all Jane Austen's heroines.

Her vitality, vivacity and wit, her hasty dismissal of superior Mr. Darcy, 'the most disagreeable man in the world,' how he improves his manners and she changes her mind, are the central ingredients of Pride and Prejudice. It is Jane Austen's best-loved novel and through the depth and sparkle of its comedy we are encouraged to consider what balance of energy and order, playfulness and regulation constitutes real strength of character.

    " My absolute favorite and one that I connect with and wish men were still honorable and admired true personality and soul. Ah, this is romance! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Siska Melinda | 2/6/2014

    " It feels strange to give 5 stars to a book, but this is book is an exception. At first I Thought the story will be boring, but it's quite good, and I'm glad I read it. The narration is smart, although it's quite boring for me. The story is not very complicated either, but I love the way Jane chose the personality for each characters. I especially amused by the personalities of the main character (Elizabeth). She is a smart young woman, a character that's really hard to find in today's novel. Anyway, considering the era when this book was written, the story is wonderfully told, beautifully said, and strangely, amusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 1/22/2014

    " I am such a sucker for love in all of it's power. I am also very odd when it comes to "the classics" and what I am told I am supposed to adore. I find I am usually 50/50. Well chalk this gorgeous book up to the winning side. Adored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali Raymer | 1/6/2014

    " A great classic story that is one of my favorites. I would say this story would be for a very advance 6th grade class. It would take the students awhile to be able to finish the book due to them needing to break down the way the book is written so that they can understand it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angel Mae | 11/7/2013

    " Aside from Austen's blatant abuse of pronouns, which forced me to re-read several passages to discover which "she" or "he" was speaking, this is one of the most engaging romances ever written. With just enough scandal to keep you interested. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jing Ma | 11/3/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 7/11/2013

    " "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Montoya | 11/24/2012

    " I really enjoyed this novel & am looking forward to reading more Jane Austen. The language was so rich, so engaging...although hard to get into at first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 11/17/2012

    " it's a classic every one should read this ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edward Espinoza | 8/24/2012

    " I don't think Jane Austen writes anything but great stories. I would love to be able to jump right back into this one and particpate as a character. P.B.S has done a movie Pride & Prejudice and it also is fantastic, both book and movie are worth going out of ones way to see. Edward Espinoza "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caril | 8/12/2012

    " Definitely my all-time favorite book, I just finished re-reading it. It improves with each reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Higgins | 8/6/2012

    " Quite possibly the best, if not the original classic romance novel. If you haven't fallen in love with Mr. Darcy by the end, you should look into travelling to the Emerald City to ask the Wizard for a heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexi Popa | 6/5/2012

    " I liked the ending :) "

    " My favorite Jane Austen book is persuasion. But I like this one to. I think Jane Austen novels are a good overview of how to determine the nature of someone's character. This is especially important if you are looking to marry that someone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celeste | 5/22/2011

    " Didn't change my life, but it was one of those books you just have to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 5/22/2011

    " My all-time favorite book. Ever. I've probably read this at least 10 times. It's one of those books that, even though you've read it multiple times, you still wonder if Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy will get together in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 E_h | 5/21/2011

    " I challenge anyone to read this book and not enjoy it. :-) "

About the Author
Author Jane Austen

Jane Austen (1775–1817) is considered by many scholars to be the first great woman novelist. Born in Steventon, England, she later moved to Bath and began to write for her own and her family’s amusement. Her novels, set in her own English countryside, depict the daily lives of provincial middle-class families with wry observation, a delicate irony, and a good-humored wit.
