Jane’s Austen’s delightfully scathing satire on class, pride, and proper behavior is as beloved today as it was when first published in 1813. The long road that the quick-witted, sharp-tongued Elizabeth Bennet and the haughty Darcy travel from mutual disdain to unfulfilled longing and finally to love and marriage is beset with obstacles in the form of Elizabeth’s insufferable mother, irrepressible younger sister, and Darcy’s own secret pain.

In Pride and Prejudice, Austen has captured not only the frivolous sensibilities of early-nineteenth-century provincial England, but also the hearts and minds of anyone who has loved outside of social expectations and aspired to a happiness beyond mere propriety.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition™ includes a glossary and reader’s notes to help the modern reader content with Austen's language and characterization.

Review of 'Pride and Prejudice' on 'GoodReads'

5 stars

Intriguing

The first few chapters weren't captivating. Personally, it has to do with the flow or arrangement of the story. One chapter, we re talking about the present-past, in the next chapter, it's a very lengthy, multiple chapters, past-past before it caught up to present-past.

There were also a very confusing switching between first-person, third-person limited, and third-person god. The sub-sections barely worked because of it.

However, I'm giving 4 out of 5 because of the story itself. The plot. The repercussions considered of what happened which is not tackled in any other similar story in this genre, or rarely touched. It is refreshing and it stays within the realms of possibility and reality as much as possible.
