Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Jane Austen’s beloved classic opens with this witty and very memorable line: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” With all the twists and turns of a soap opera, Pride and Prejudice chronicles the drama that ensues when the wealthy bachelor Mr. Darcy moves close to the Bennet family home in the English countryside. The news of his arrival sends the socially ambitious Mrs. Bennet-whose main concern is finding suitable matches for her five daughters-into overdrive.

The book’s main character, the high-spirited Elizabeth Bennet, is a strikingly modern heroine: a woman who refuses to lower her expectations or transform herself to suit society’s norms. Austen’s novel achieves a remarkable balance, serving up barbed criticism of the obsession with money, status, and matrimony even as it draws us into a swoon-worthy love story. At its heart, Pride and Prejudice is a romantic comedy, and a darned great one at that. It’s so much fun to turn the pages and wonder about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy: Will they or won’t they overcome their excessive pride and initial prejudices to make a happily-ever-after connection?

    I was very surprised at how TERRIBLE this book was. Even Elmo was better. So I will say it once and once only. The amount of boringness in this book is ASTRONOMICAL

    I had to read this for school and my teacher made it sound like this book was gonna be so interesting and drama-filled but most of the book was very predictable with no big plot twists. But some parts were good and I like the way it was written
  • More words than story

    I really enjoyed the beginning, but then the book just took too long. Interesting story, I guess, but eventually there was more description than character development and action. If you’re looking for a book like this with more action, I would recommend Jane Eyre. No offense to anyone who likes this book!
  • Highly recommended

    Although it starts off slow, by the end the characters and story elements wind together into a beautiful tapestry.

    Decided to delete social media and spend the quarantine getting back into books. I picked this one and am so so glad I did. Such a page turner! I found myself so internally excited at certain points could not put it down. It was like stepping into a time machine! I also really enjoyed the convenience of Apple Books allowing you to so easily display word definitions with out truly interrupting the read.
  • Crazy good classic
