Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – Book Review

Title: Pride and Prejudice

Author: Jane Austen

Genre/Themes: Classic Literature, Romantic Comedy, Societal Manners and Expectations in Regency England, Decorum, Duty, Enemies to Lovers,

Blurb from Goodreads

Since its immediate success in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language.

Jane Austen called this brilliant work “her own darling child” and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, “as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print.”

The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilised sparring. And Jane Austen’s radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.

My Review

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”

  • Intelligently written.
  • Perfect prose.
  • Witty.
  • Incisive.
  • Glorious characters.
  • A timeless story.
  • And Mr Darcy.

It all adds up to perfection in book form.

The Austenite Prayer: Lord grant me the good sense of Elinor, the patience of Anne, and the wit of Elizabeth. But mostly, please grant me Mr. Darcy.
