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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Sometimes that can and have made me very critical of takes on this novel. While I admit I am disappointed that there are not more designs which include Elizabeth and Darcy or other of the characters, I think the designs are quite lovely and will be lots of fun to color. Some of my favorite excerpts are included, including “It is universally acknowledged...” so the story is fun to read as I color. Just coloring my first choice of designs in the book made me reach for my Kindle to read the story in full once again.
The cover is in black print on white (with elements you can color) with gold foil highlights on the front. Both covers fold out and there are some elements on the flaps that can be colored but the inside of the covers are really just pretty patterns with nothing to color except background.
As I noted, there are lovely designs of gloves, flowers, and whatnot. The book is a little light on characters. The designs are intricate and detailed in spots but should not pose any particular issues in coloring apart from the fact the book is printed on both sides of the page.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing my coloring medium of the paper.
78 Storybook designs pages (including three pages of the language of flowers – lovely little addition to the book.)
Designs are printed on both sides of the page
Paper is heavyweight, white, slightly smooth, and non-perforated.
Sewn Binding which makes it easy to remove several pages at a time by snipping a few threads. This method makes sure you don't lose portions of the design if you want to remove pages.
Designs merge into the binding area.
Some designs spread across two pages with essential elements merging into the binding area.
My copy of the book lined up very well on the two page designs.
I could get the book to lay fairly flat by breaking (or creasing) the spine.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through slightly on this paper.
Water based markers (except for brush end Tombows) left the slightest indistinct shadow on the back of the page. Tombow did not leave a shadow.
Gel pens and India ink pens did not bleed through this paper.
Colored pencils did well with this paper. I was able to color with light or heavy pigment, layer and blend using both my various wax and oil based pencils. I use a pencil style stick blender for my tests. Hard lead pencils did well and did not dent/score through to the back of the page.
I have SUCH a girl crush on Elinor Dashwood. Good, kind, practical Elinor - empathetic, compassionate to a fault, and as capable of deep feeling as her demonstrative mother and sister Marianne. She was the ideal prism through which to experience this story of the love and devotion between sisters, through romantic trials and disappointments. I loved this book to pieces.
I never thought a novel by Jane Austen could leave me in so much suspense, put me through so much agony for the fate of its characters, and make me laugh out loud so often. I didn't know Austen could be so sharp, witty and sarcastic.
Her novel contains very little of what we would think of as action. Plot details are revealed through conversations between different characters. Oh, those conversations! Austen's insight into human nature and foibles was absolutely first rate. Her novel left me wondering what effusive Mrs. Jenningses, selfish Mr. Willoughbys and sly Lucy Steeles she must have known in real life.
I never could get through an Austen novel before trying this audiobook. The formal language in which she wrote left me befuddled, sure I was missing the meanings beneath the surface of her words. Juliet Stevenson's incredible narration freed me from that difficulty. Her performance was fresh, nuanced and lively, teasing out all the irony, humor and pathos of the words.
I finished the book with a little sigh of happiness for Elinor and Marianne and regret to have to leave their world so soon. I cannot wait to listen to more Jane Austen.
Pride and Prejudice was one of those books that I brought with me on a flight just because it was a book I didn't seem to get tired of. The writing style is classic Jane Austen-- with an exceptionally opinionated and witty heroine and a dark misunderstood hero who each has their fair share of prejudices and pride to overcome in their complicated relationship. In fact, the premise is so popular that it's been remade, rewritten, and parodied countless times throughout the years. I give full credit to its popularity due to Austen's exceptional writing ability and her talented skill in developing her characters.
This book needs no further accolades from me as I'm pretty sure everyone and their mother has probably already given it a go. It is no fluke that this is Austen's most popular work (Okay, it is, in fact, her most popular work) and Elizabeth is the most popular Austen heroine of all time. Girls of all ages and even some guys would probably enjoy this particular timeless story and its progressive heroine.
