Pride and Prejudice
The only thing I had a bit of a problem with is the language, and that's probably mostly true for most people. Sometimes it's hard to understand what the characters are talking about since it's 1800's England. However, if you just keep reading it gets easier, and you can figure out what is going on fairly easily.
I adore Mr. Darcy. He is my all time favorite male lead. He may be stubborn and come across as a jerk at first, but oh my goodness, what a romantic, passionate man! Elizabeth is so lucky. I love their story line. The ups, downs, the romance, the glances, everything. I just cannot get enough of this story. Even though the story revolves around Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, there are plenty of sub plots happening as well. And the book does a great job of helping us learn about England and it's social status back in the day. Something that we don't really have today (not in the same way anyway).
If you have not read this book, get it. You have to try it out, you need to read it!
You can tell that so many other books have taken from Pride and Prejudice. I guess in that way, it will forever live on. Much like Romeo and Juliet.
Was my favorite part the romance? No.
I wouldn't call it romance, more along the lines of pining over someone until they give in. Although, towards the end, Mr. Darcy is quite adorable with his letters and trekking across cities just to see her.
My favorite part was the family Elizabeth was always trying to get away from. And I cant blame her.
Her mom was crazy. Her sisters were love sickened puppets. Her cousin wanted to marry her for goodness sake!
But her father was my favorite. Mr. Bennett told it like it was and I give props to the man!
It took me awhile to get through this one because the language was so tedious. Old English dialect is not something I'm accustomed to. But in the end, it was worth it and I can say that I loved it very much.
