Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Pride and Prejudice is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.

Though the story is set at the turn of the 19th century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books" such as The Big Read. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes. To date, the book has sold some 20 million copies worldwide.
As Anna Quindlen wrote,
Pride and Prejudice is also about that thing that all great novels consider, the search for self. And it is the first great novel that teaches us this search is as surely undertaken in the drawing room making small talk as in the pursuit of a great white whale or the public punishment of adultery.

    Love will find a way. The novel is delightfully entertaining in telling the love story of Darcy and Elizabeth with all the twists and turns and the drama of the family Bennet.

    Loved the humor, use of language and character sketch of each. It has been nearly 50 years since I’ve read it and it is even more valued now.

    Loved this book, way better than I was expecting! The title makes it sound stuffy but it’s worth the read. Also expanded my vocabulary quite a bit with this novel.

    I’ve read this book three times over! What an astonishing author. It was especially good to see the movie and place the same characters while reading this book. Outstanding!

    Pride and Prejudice kept me intrigued from start to finish! I watched the 2005 movie, but nothing substitutes the book. I adored all of the characters, and will definitely read this book again.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. My teacher explained to us many times that this book is not a romance as we explored the deeper meaning of it. However, I focused on and most enjoyed the epic, prideful romances.

    Not exactly my type of book, but the storyline is well-written and there was enough humor to keep it moving. ;)
