Pride and Prejudice

When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she keep him arrogant and conceited; he is ndifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

Stil that you now th one made the list- check out this video to see the rest!

* cue the long, sustained high-pitched squealing* This was ruly as glorious as I remember.

* cue high-society ladies fainting*.

Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy moved into town and immediately Mrs. Bennett set her dasterdly plans in motion ( on behalf of her mortified children).

Elizabeth is not lookin to roll over to whatever man is thrust her way.

To her cousin 's ever-living-disappointment, Elizabeth has all the spunk and backbone of a truly glorious woman:

ruly a great read, no matter the century.Plus Jane Austen is totally my soul sister.

" Pride and Prejudice " by Jane Austen started off annoying me and ended up enchanting me.

Up until about page one hundred I found the book vexing, frivolous and down right tedious.

So I admit to not starting this book with the highest of hopes.

Austen 's dialogue is delightful through out but dialogue alone ( no matter how delicious) does not a great novel make.A hundred pages or so in though I started to see what a shrewd eye for character this Austen woman had.

As they have been for probably 7 years now.

his essa is quite possibly the most insipid novel I have ever read in my life.

A story really probably could have been old in about 8 pages, but Austen makes us slog through 345 pages of mind-numbing balls and dinner-parties.

Anothe answe was where to begin.After sherlocking through my Easton Press collection, I tarted by pulling out my Dickens and reading A Tale of Two Cities which I hought was jaw-dropping AMAZO and left me feeling warm, satisfied and content.

I was instantly intrigue by the characters and Elizabeth Bennet, the main rotagonist, immediately became one of my all time favourit characters.

I eeded to believe that and now I eel better.

That one has made it onto my list of All Time Favorite novels and is ruly one of the classics that lives up to its billing.
