"You must learn some of my philosophy. Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure."

OMG, I'm going to have a Pride and Prejudice hungover, I can feel it in my bones! But luckily I realized there's a shiteload of retellings out there and I need to get my filthy hands on them as soon as possible!

I loved this story, it dragged a bit in certain points, but it got me fangirling like an idiot and I rarely do that when reading romances. Jane Austen, you did it again!

Mr Bennet is my favourite literary dad of all time, so sassy and nonchalant, every line of his pure gold!

"If any young men come for Mary or Kitty, send them in, for I am quite at leisure."

Loved it, I cannot wait to get to all the other works by dear ol' Jane!

This book is set in the 18th century and it's a very funny story about the love story between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Although they at the beginning dislike each other over the course of the book they find themselves falling in love. It's a great book on prejudices that both social and income classes have against each other.

Although this is a must read for many I wouldn't recommend this for young readers as there is some very hard vocabulary. If you are however up for it then read it as it is really worth it.

I read this. Finally. Okay, here is my opinion.
The first half - really, looked like half - of the book I didn't like it much. Not for the story told - for the style. The way people talked seemed too exaggerated to me, but that bothered me less than the fact that for the first half of the book especially the author continuously tells us who is feeling what. To have to say something that has to be shown.. it was putting me off. It was putting me off a lot. But I managed to read it - it does give a sense of the time, so that, as well as the hope it will get better(oh, yeah, and the decision to finally read this book), kept me interested. Somewhere about the middle of the book the tendency to say who is feeling what has lowered, or, more to the point, the feelings were shown instead of spelled out, mostly. That made the book much more attractive, and the story picked up pace as well.
It is worthwhile to read, I think. It should make one consider the kind of parenting one gives, and the kind one is responsible to give. And it should make us think about behavior, and personal responsibility, and judging, and pride, and honesty. The language and style immerse us into the times, and are beautifully used. It should be read; as people tend to say - "It is a classic for a reason."

This book is one of my favourites. I really love the way Jane Austen has written it, it is well and truly one of her best works.Though it might be a bit hard to understand at first if you read through carefully you will get it.

I'm sure I would appreciate this book a lot more if I could fully understand the meaning of some things. It's still a pretty good book and has a lot of girlpower involved especially in Elizabeth's sharp comebacks. The story is mostly about, you guessed it, pride and prejudice-in relation to the relationship between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. You see, in the beginning Mr. Darcy doesn't like Elizabeth and vice versa but as they get to see a lot more of each other and as Elizabeth discovers the truth about Mr. Darcy she realizes that she likes him.
