A diamond of the first water
on 30 December 2012
At the conclusion of her assessment of Pride & Prejudice, Susannah Fullerton likens the novel to the ultimate precious stone. Her book provides the ideal reading companion for JA's most famous creation. From the Austen novice to the dedicated Janeite, there is something here to resonate with all. Far from losing sight of the unique sparkling tone of her subject, the author demonstrates perfect pitch in her discussion of the famous opening sentence, full range of characters, film and theatre versions and the industry that has grown from them. And there is much more besides, showing the author's deep knowledge of and affection for P&P. Here is a celebration that deserves complete appreciation.
