Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen
1813

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." Thus memorably begins Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, one of the world's most popular novels. Clever and precocious, Austen began Pride and Prejudice when she was only twenty-one years old. From the initial friction between the opinionated Elizabeth Bennet and the arrogant, wealthy Mr. Darcy, this witty comedy of manners dips and turns through its interlocking plots to reach an immensely satisfying conclusion.
Filled with highly entertaining dialogue, Pride and Prejudice is, in the words of Eudora Welty, as "irresistible and as nearly flawless a any fiction could be."

-Hayz's Review-
This is truly a classic. If you know the story but haven't read the book then that is sad. This book is a hard read since it was written in the 1800s. It took me almost 3 months to read, granted I had other things to read, but still. This book has so much more in it then the movies put in it!
