When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships,gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

But sometimes, he wills it to a distant relative, so when he dies, you’re out on your ass. And then, and THEN, that distant, meddlesome priest of a relative tries to seduce one of your sisters. Unsure why anyone would want my sisters. All they want is to hit it with the officers – what war are they even fighting in the countryside? Though my older sister–Jane–is nice. How could she not be? Jane is such a good name. I would like anybody named Jane. From Twitterature: The World's Greatest Books in Twenty Tweets or Less

Have Jane Austen's works become an antidote to a harshness in the world? Are they a key to disarming totalitarian societies? To making the world decide to be ha...

This was my second book by Jane Austen, the first being Sense and Sensibility. When I read Sense and Sensibility, I found that I liked it but wasn’t blown away by it. And given the fact that I now remember absolutely nothing about it, it didn’t leave much of an impression on me. Going into Pride and...

4.0 Review of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

There is literally no plot outside of who is going to marry and fall in love with whom, but the story was a fascinating look into upper...

4.0 [REVIEW] Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I finally finished this book! YAY! My goodness, it took me forever to do so. It's as romantic as I had expected but also very difficult to keep track of all the Miss Bennetts.
