The indomitable Jane Austen. Not much else need be said. Of course, this is the classic Love story. The innocence of Miss Austen seeps through every character. If only we could go back to those more innocent times our selves. This is not the first time I have read this book, nor will it be the last. Pride & Prejudice is the kind of book that you wear out, over and over again, in your lifetime. This is my 5th copy. If you've never read this book, I would absolutely suggest it. There is no greater love than That of Mr Darcy and his Elizabeth.
Jane Austen's characters are just wonderful, I see them in people even today. Her humor is perfectly matched with the more serious parts of her novels.
