Pride and Prejudice is a masterpiece of wit and perception, ridiculing the superficial manners of Jane Austen’s time. But it is more than just social satire. Notice, in particular, how the author’s close attention to detail makes the events and characters so true to life. Above all, enjoy the story—its sheer narrative force and humor—and enter a world of snobbery, romance, and uncertainty in which people behave casually, indifferently, or even cruelly—in short, just like people behave everywhere in the world today.

    " In my opinion, this book was one among the many pieces that 'turned' literature around. This piece, as I observed, is the basis of some of the great stories I have read. Two star-crossed lovers played by fate,blinded by hate and misgivings only to fall in love at the end. I sincerely recommend this book to all. "

    " Great. Austine never fails me. Currently she is the most favorite author in Britain. Pride and prejudice is also masterpiece. I can't stop flipping the pages while I find how Elizabeth discovers Mr.Darcy. Guessing what's trend of Austines's era is also exciting. Tottaly I enjoyed this novel. I still have a few to-read Austine's novel. Very excited. "

    " This book is so witty and funny and sweet. A really entertaining read with well drawn memorable characters. "

    " es muy bueno, me encanto la trama todo o que viene. Es uno de mis favoritos "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 2/10/2014

    " Have read multiple times throughout my life. A story that never gets old. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 2/9/2014

    " Very playful in characterization and gave the lead Lizzie a lot of wit and independence of thought. The long winded, well versed arguments and come backs are funny and well written, making you wish that in real life you could put together such a tirade when ever it was needed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 2/9/2014

    " Oh Mr. Darcy, I do love this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 2/9/2014

    " Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book by far! There's so many different personalities and you feel as if you truly know the characters. Elizabeth Bennett is my favorite charcter, naturally. She's an intelligent, down to earth woman who enjoys reading. Her family is a bit chaotic and act foolish at times but every character grows on you and is essential for making the book excellent. Mr. Darcy's demeanor in the beginning makes for an intersting twist when you see how different he becomes in the end. A good man through and through but love brings out a particular charm in him. There is much drama to be had to make this a page turner but done in a very realistic way. You will find deceit, lies, romance, and a compelling urge to smack a few people into their senses through the pages. It's an amazing book, a must read for all! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bryn | 2/8/2014

    " I just don't understand the appeal of this book. I read it because I had so many people recommend it and was sorely disappointed. It's just plain boring. I had to force my way through it. I don't see it as a great romance because the characters aren't developed enough to even form an opinion on them. Skip this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 2/6/2014

    " Favorite book of all time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mamta | 1/29/2014

    " Jane Austen - Articulate and descriptive as always! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jing | 1/25/2014

    " This is my favorite English novels. There are places where I enjoy even now, after having read it for so many times! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alejandra | 1/17/2014

    " Mr. Darcy will eventually marry me. Someday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 1/17/2014

    " I Thought the book was pretty good, but not GREAT. For one, the settings of England in the 18th and 19th centuries are not settings that i am very fond. Other than that, I really liked all the different relationships and the need to get married. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharpcast | 1/16/2014

    " This is another fine masterpiece by Austen. This is supposed to be more of a biographical work as the character of Darcy is based on Austen's own experience with a failed romance. Austen, incidentally, remained unmarried in real life, though she often write about love, marriage, and romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/15/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richa | 5/7/2013

    " A classic love story on the lines of 'opposites attract'. A theme that never goes out of fashion. Opposites do attract, always did. The excitement that it leads to, is just the bonus! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danette | 5/6/2013

    " I can read and watch this a million times and not get tired of it. So many wrong impressions can make judgements embarrassing! Great lesson. "

    " I just re-read this one because I want to now read the PD James sequel, "Death at Pemberley." It was fun to read a book I haven't read since I was 20. The characters have not lost their charm. Jane Austen = genius. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 12/27/2011

    " Austen is very deceptivly cynical. I love the when the heroine falls in love with the hero after seeing his estate. Austen has been miscast as the source for so many romantic comedy when I have never read anyone who is more cynical about money and marriage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 9/30/2011

    " I read this book at the age of 14,the funny fact is life for a female in our society is nearly as dull and repetitive as in the plot of the novel.I sympathized with the girls....now it is a good memory. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 5/24/2011

    " This is my favorite Jane Autin book. I have read it many times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/23/2011

    " 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

  • 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

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.
