Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In a remote Hertfordshire village, far off the good coach roads of George III's England, Mr. and Mrs. Bennet -- a country squire of no great means and his scatterbrained wife -- must marry off their five vivacious daughters. At the heart of this all-consuming enterprise are the headstrong second daughter Elizabeth and her aristocratic suitor Fitzwilliam Darcy, two lovers in whom pride and prejudice must be overcome before love can bring the novel to its magnificent conclusion.

From Library Journal

Austen is the hot property of the entertainment world with new feature film versions of Persuasion and Sense and Sensibility on the silver screen and Pride and Prejudice hitting the TV airwaves on PBS. Such high visibility will inevitably draw renewed interest in the original source materials. These new Modern Library editions offer quality hardcovers at affordable prices.

Very nice copy for a used book.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen has got to have one of the best male characters of all time, Mr. Darcy.

My 13 year old daughter and I just finished reading this book and LOVED it! As we read the book, we kept noticing that many of the characters remind us of people we know! It was funny, and really says a lot for Jane Austen's insight on human nature. Her characters are very realistic in my opinion.
We learned from the book that in Jane Austen's time in England, it was very important to say and do the right things and to be excruciatingly polite. P&P can be tedious to read until you get used to the way they talk, but once you do it really makes it even more amusing to read.
I tried to read P&P once before a few years ago, but I only got about a third of the way through the book. I just couldn't understand it well enough. I would recommend to anyone who was put off by the book to give it another chance. See one of the excellent videos first if you don't understand it, and then come back and literally FEAST on the book, which is so much better! I know that reading it has expanded my ability to appreciate good literature, and I know I will read all of Jane Austen's novels now.

Format: Paperback
When I started this book, I must say, it was with dragging feet. It was assigned to me for school and I was prepared for a sappy romance story, probably with big words, like most classics. The first half seemed to be living up to my expectations, minus the big words. In fact, it was so simply written that I began to wonder why it was called a classic at all. I know I may be speaking blasphemy according to some people, but all I could think in the beginning was that this was some twaddle about a bunch of giggly girls from the Victorian era! Then the middle came. At just about the exact middle of the book, things got interesting. Tension was rising; emotions were running like a river through rapids, and I was hooked. I suddenly found myself reading more chapters than I was assigned to that week, and of all the books I had to read in a week, that was the first one I picked up. I can't tell you any more specifically what grabbed me for fear of giving too much away, but I will tell you this: it may take awhile to get there, but it's well worth the wait. Once I had finished it I had to go back and read all my favorite parts! Now I, who sneered at Austen at the first, am planning on reading "Sense and Sensibility" over the summer. Austen, you have me converted!

Format: Paperback
Jane Austen has long been one of my favorite authors and "Pride and Prejudice" is by far my favorite among her books. This is a classic and timeless tale of romance and the often-ridiculous social mores that too often control people's lives. The love affairs between Jane and Mr. Bingley and Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have entranced readers through the decades. I gave a 4 rating (instead of a 5) only because in today's fast-paced society, used to the instant gratification of TV and videos, Jane Austen's elaborate and descriptive writing style might be difficult for some people to stick with. For those of us who love the grandeur of the English language, that will never be a problem.

Format: Paperback
What a wonderful book! This book was even better the 2nd time and now that I have brushed up on my P&P, I will hopefully be reading Mr. Darcy's Obsession next month. I love the book, "pride and prejudice" it's a wonderful story about a family in the 1700's and the classes of society. Reminds us how different things were. Has a Dramatic story with a beautiful classic love story intertwined. If I was to chose a modern day version of this book it would be Bridget Jones Diary, because she is in love with the man who is not who he seems to be, despises another man who she sees so wrong. Ends up falling in love with the man she thought of as a horrible man. What a great read. I also love my new book light! Target 9.99 was the best investment ever. I was surprised I was able to finish this book while we had company here, but with a few sleepless nights I breezed right through this book. I give this book 5 stars

This is a classic and a must for any serious reader. It embodies the flavor, style, historical setting that appeals to anyone, but especially to Anglophiles.

The book had all the words in it, some might have been missing, but if they were, I didn't notice. Perfect for drooling on. Ni-i-ice.
