It amazes me how so many things can change as generations of the human race re-populate the earth, yet, sadly, many things also stay the same. Titled quite appropriately, Pride and Prejudice tackles two major issues that generation after generation have struggled with. Though the times have changed and the issues are different we still struggle with Pride and Prejudice.
Jane Austen masterfully creates a cast of wonderful characters that have remained popular for centuries. Elizabeth Bennett, Charles Bingley, Jane Bennett and Mr. Darcy are entertaining, clever and wonderfully developed characters. They are easy to fall in love with as you get wrapped up within their story. The writing holds true to Austen’s wit and humor while creating a tale that keeps you hooked until the end. The time period is captured beautifully as Austen writes about an era where social class standings make or break in love and marriage. It’s a classic that shouldn’t be missed and demands attention. The newly designed cover brilliantly displays the enchanting story within.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is one of the best-loved novels of all time--and today, it's more popular than ever. When the wealthy and very eligible bachelor Charles Bingley purchases an estate in the Bennets' small town, he and the beautiful Jane immediately fall in love. But Bingley's arrogant friend Darcy just as quickly alienates Lizzy when she overhears him speaking dismissively of her. These first impressions have lasting repercussions for Jane, Elizabeth, and their whole family. Rich in wit and wisdom, humor and humanity, Pride and Prejudice takes a probing, entertaining look at the nature of love, money, and power in Georgian England.
