A Realistic Romance | Posted March 14, 2010
I love this book because it has realistic characters. Anyone knows at least one person who is like a character in the books-an annoying flirt, a seemingly rude and arrogant hottie, an embarrassing mom, an unfortunate friend, etc. Jane's sharp and biting wit makes the story an extra winner in my book, though some of the "flowery" language may scare off someone who doesn't regurarly read classics.

A good fireside book | Posted October 05, 2009
It's a good classic and a nice way to spend the afternoon but I'm not in love with this book. To me Jane Austen has so many other books that are ( cough better cough) very good as well. While I enjoyed reading it-I found that it was not a book that I would want to read again and again. But it is a good classic and I do recommend it for those that enjoy historical romances and such...

classics are classics for a reason | Posted September 29, 2009
This book is the ultimate romantic comedy classic from the classic histrionic mother to the clueless siblings and of course, the fiery heroine that labors under a misconception for most of the novel. And is separated emotionally from the hero. But through the course of these misadventures their true feelings are then realized when it dawns on them that even after all of this I still want to spend my life with this person. Elizabeth is my hero and Mr. Darcy is the man I want to marry. I love Jane Austen and I love this book. She was the genius pioneer of the modern romantic novel.

Fantastic Classic! | Posted July 08, 2009
This book is clearly a classic. The opening line is one that makes you smile and fills you with anticipation for what is to come. Elizabeth's life is filled with the humorous, serious, and sometimes downright dreadful dealings. I read this book years ago when I was a teenager and I remember sitting with my book and suddenly looking up and bursting out with laughter. Jane Austen does a wonderful job of portraying this romanic (dare I say comedy?) novel and I would recommend it to anyone.

An All Time Fav Classical!!! | Posted July 02, 2009
I cannot even begin to tell you how splendidly magnificent Jane Austen’s works are. They have a beautiful intensity that is kept in bounds by her witty observations of the world her characters spend their time in. There exists enough realism so that the reader can understand the character’s reactions, emotions and thoughts, while day-dream inspiring enough to make you lie awake at night and imagine yourself meeting your Mr. Darcy…

Pride and Prejudice is particularly brilliant, but it’s probably because I am well, being a slight bit prejudice  since it was my first work of Jane Austen’s. Another factor influencing my exceptional awe of this book is how universal it is. Not only does one hear references of the Bennet’s or the ever-handsome Darcy quite often, but many a girl can relate to what occurs in the story.

For all those that are only now discovering this gem of a book, the story journeys with the girls (or ladies, rather) of the Bennet family. More specifically it’s about Elizabeth Bennet (the eldest sister) and the stir of emotion within her when the dream-inspiring Mr. Darcy makes his appearance. This is a very short summary, but I’d rather say that the value of the book exists in the conversations and thoughts of the characters instead of the story itself.

Jane Austen had the ability to create a gentle satire within a passionate romance (maybe you don’t understand that I call this passionate, but I believe that emotions so overwhelming, but kept under control until the truth and reliability of the love can be determined, are so much more passionate than the infatuation, jittery-type passion so popular in books nowadays) while keeping the story-line interesting, yet simple.

This is one of the ground works that I have based so much of my personality and dreams on. Elizabeth is an innocent, sweet girl combined with a witty, contemplative woman. Mr. Darcy is difficult to understand, but he receives the ‘deep-charm’ award (from the committee of Teague). This just means that he is expressive, without saying anything; mature, without being old and handsome without having an ego. In other words, the perfect man (yes, he is shy and irritatingly stubborn and I’m sure he has a few other ‘quirks’, but this is as perfect as they come).

The remainder of the characters are treated with enough interest and care that the story remains varied, resulting in an even more splendid novel.

This is a must-read:
Classic literature has never been better!

Inspiring Book. | Posted June 12, 2009
This novel really is deep. There are so many things I took from this book. I actually studied this book in school and it was really amazing to see the depth of Austen's characters.

Pride and Prejudice | Posted April 09, 2008
Undoubtedly Jane Austen's best work, and defintiely her most famous. I personally love the book. And it's often been said, if a guy wants to learn the key to a girl's heart, read this book! I think the plot line is brilliant, and Elizabeth and Darcy are great characters. Jane Austen is so smart, and she knows what will get to a girl. And it's a romance novel without the cliches, which is hard to get. Some may find it really hard to read and pay attention to,and if so, well, just watch the movies.

i saw the movies. they were ok. the book was ok too, it is a pretty cool book if you really dig into the meanings and stuff. but its not really a book to read if you have no patience and really want some action.
