Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice Summary

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?

Absolutely Incredible5 star

Obviously this book is amazing, I feel like I’m super late to reading this since it came out 200 years ago, but there’s no doubt this book is so popular. I love the growth development each character experienced throughout the entire book. My favorite character was Mr. Bennet because he was so logical in all his decisions, my least favorite was probably Lydia and Wickham. Read the book to find out why! I definitely recommend it, and get a notepad or on your notes write down each word you don’t understand, to expand your vocabulary! <355

Great classic!3 star

It was a very tough read but I’m glad I got through it. The storyline was great but it definitely dragged in some parts.35
