I have been reading regency/historical romance for about a year. I thought it would be interesting to read a romance novel that was actually written at that time. I also wanted to try my mind at a classic.

I admit it took me twice as long to read this as a contemporary romance. The phrasing and dialogue is so different you have to read each word. But I was pleasantly surpised by how much I enjoyed the story and the characters. I found myself laughing and really seeing these people as I read it.

The main reason I read romance novels is because I love the tension between the characters as they begin their relationship. There is great tension between Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy.

After reading this book I will be trying some more Jane Austen and possible some other authors of the same time period.

Elizabeth Bennet is young, vivacious, strong-willed, and unmarried. Mr.Darcy is rich, handsome, unbearably arrogant, and...also unmarried. The two are reluctantly attracted to one another. Yet they fight against the love they feel with fierce pride and willful prejudice.

A witty comedy by Jane Austen which details ahd twists and turns of the romantic courtships in the 1700's. Said to be one of the best love stories of all time, it details the courtship between the suave Mr.Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. It is very funny and a really charming love story that I reccomend greatly. Although it was written awhile ago, the love elements in it are seen in today's society also. The new movie Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightley was based on this book.
