4.0 [REVIEW] Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

3.0 Miłość, miłość, miłość... i może jeszcze troszkę nienawiści.
O "Dumie i uprzedzeniu" dużo nie napiszę z prostego powodu: książka mi nie przypasowała. Nie jest to związane z tym, że nie lubię klasyki, bowiem już kilkakrotnie czytałam coś do niej zaliczanego, co było wspaniałe. "Duma i uprzedzenie" była taką gonitwą za chłopakiem bądź jego brakiem.
