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.

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.

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.

This is a small (physically small) book. It is an Illustrated Classics Edition perfect for a middle schooler. It is an adapted version of the original book (only 236 pages)and has illustrations.

Absolutely wonderful. One of the most beautiful stories I have read yet. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean romance full of humor and sadness. This is one that's hard to put down, A 10 star book for sure.

This is a wonderful book! When I first heard about it I was sceptical, but by the second chapter, I was hooked. The many twists in this book will make you rethink your own pride and predjudice as well as your assumptions about people.

If you have never read Austen, here is one title that will get you hooked. Unparalelled characvter development. The writing enables the reader to quickly be entranced by the characters and their story.

Awesome book.. typical Austen, not necessarily "adventure" laden, but it follows her signature style and is a great book.

This is the Jane Austen classic. I don't know why it's listing the author as Pamela Norris, as she is only the editor.

I loved this book! You get so into it, you want to laugh at times, cry at times, and yell at the character's judgement sometimes. All in all, it is a classic for a reason...

This is my favorite Jane Austen book. I couldn't help but fall in love with Mr. Darcy, and I found Elizabeth to be a much likeable female character than those in some of Austen's other books (I found Emma Woodhouse, for example, to be incredibly irritating).

This book is the children's version of the story. I don't know what reading level it is, probably 6th grade.

My first Austen read and I wasn't dissapointed! I do agree that you have to slow down when reading older literature but it's worth it! This is a love that develops over time and it's not your boring everyday tale. The characters are well developed and interesting. I love the fact that Lizzy isn't a swooning female, but is full of wit. Five stars for sure!

I thought I would read this book since it is a classic and has many good reviews but I simply could not get into it for the life of me. It was hard to follow with nothing except dialogue. I can't give an honest review since I didn't finish the book, but it definitely didn't keep me interested!

Classic, must read! Best Jane Austen book!
mimibottoms avatar reviewed Pride and Prejudice on + 58 more book reviews
Pride and Prejudice is a heartwarming classic about human folly and the roll it plays. Elizabeth Bennett is a wonderfully complex character whose equal has not been created. And Mr. Darcy is an irresistible man who you despise for several chapters and then slowly learn what he is really about. There are so many twists and turns of the plot that sometimes your mind spins with the possiblities. If you've seen a movie version, none of them really captures the book (the only close one is the 6-part miniseries by BBC / A&E). You must read it to get the full sense of the beauty, strife, and emotion that Jane Austen created.

What's not to love about this book? If you can have the patience to get through some of the slower parts and can focus on the brilliant interactions between the characters, then you will be incredibly satisfied at the end of this beautiful novel. Highly recommended!

I loved the book Pride and Prejudice. Like any good book, I was thinking about the characters even when I wasn't reading about them. The relationship between Jane and Elizabeth Bennett is one any pair of sisters would envy. Not surprisingly, I prefer the book to the movie. The book is much more detailed than the condensed version of the movie. I plan to read each of Jane Austen's novels. She is brilliant.

This is the classic English novel of romance. I enjoyed Jane Austen's intelligent writing and ability to vividly portray her characters. "And while she entertains us, Jane Austen teaches us the wisdom of balance, the folly of 'pride' and 'prejudice.'

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.

The thing I remember most about this book is that Tom Hanks' character tried to plow through it in "You've Got Mail".

This is a loving Victorian novel. I enjoyed the adventures and courtships of the girls. Although their mother (Miss Bennet) and Lady Catherine made me roll my eyes and appreciate the 21st century several times.
