4.0 out of 5 stars Good 21 Dec. 2013

The book is wonderful and very engaging, however it was missing a lot of words which was annoying. I would recommend a better version where the text hasn`t been cut, and to someone reading it just for the storyline and pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book 7 Sept. 2014
By Aletheuon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
'Pride and Prejudice' was published in 1813 and describes how its heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, copes with life among the landed gentry in the early nineteenth century. It is a delicate, wise and sometimes richly humorous novel about how to cope with polite society and its rules. Elizabeth is one of five sisters, the daughters of a moderately well-off country gentleman; his estate is entailed to the nearest male relative and the girls will have a very modest inheritance, so it is imperative that they marry well. To find a suitable husband, they must be accomplished, beautiful and well-mannered and the book deals with issues of manners, upbringing and educations, as well as morality.
This is such a well-known story and has been made into films and television series so many times that you'd think that reading it would be a yawn. On the contrary, it is subtle and charming and wise and thoroughly enjoyable, in my opinion Jane Austen's greatest novel. How much I'd have missed if I had simply watched this on tv! One really understands why Elizabeth and Jane's embarrassing relatives - their parents and siblings, were such a drawback to making a good marriage, as well as why their father's conduct was a reprehensible as their foolish mother's. What I loved was the realism - the explicit way in which women recognised that their only route to a secure and comfortable life was to marry the right man, and that actually falling in love was an optional extra. Elizabeth's plain friend, Charlotte, trades herself off to a foolish man whom she does not love in order to have a home and family and her painful predicament is completely understandable. Elizabeth is determined not to marry without love. Will she succeed? She learns many lessons in her journey to happiness, as does Darcy, and this is what gives the plot its movement forward. A lovely book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Austen's apology for Sense and Sensibilty 23 Mar. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Upon reading this, I always saw it as Austen's apology for the murder of Marianne Dashwood's character at the end of Sense and Sensibility. Elizabeth is an extremely likeable character, a perfect mix of propriety and bluntness, making her both admirable and a fun protagonist. It also holds up very well to the test of time as although perhaps old fashioned in its obsession with marriage, it conveys the importance of women's choices and the importance of being true to yourself, and if you are, that good things will come. The more twee parts of it- the obsession with honouring your family, the letter writing, all serve as endearing and remind you of the time it's set in, which I enjoyed. I also l liked that her sister's incorrigiblity as she reamined bad - it's nice to not have a completely happy ending.

For this reason, and the excellent and honest writing, the scathing wit and comedy, and two characters whose attraction you can feel, I give Pride and Prejudice 5 stars, and I'm sad to finish it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully funny and touching 22 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Pride and Prejudice" last fell under my gaze at the age of sixteen when I read the first two pages and, with an adolescent huff, discarded it as "boring". It never crossed my path since until, due to my beloved Kindle, the free download of "Pride and Prejudice" became more appealing, perhaps due to my irrational feeling that all books become infinitely more enjoyable when read on the Kindle.

Admittedly, I did not fall in love with the story of Elizabeth and Mr Darcy immediately. Despite considering myself quite a literary person, the language was more meandering than I had expected (and vastly different to the last book I read prior to this, Jane Eyre) and the protracted musings on social expectations were initially slightly difficult to follow.

Soon however, I became immersed in the conflict (and then the slowly encompassing love) between Elizabeth and Darcy - two people more alike than not. Austen's humour (far more subtle than if the book were to be written now) is infectious and she writes with sarcastic yet intelligent wit on the expectations of society upon women, marriage and love (and also how the latter is not necessarily present in the former)

The love between the two main protagonists is not how I had previously imagined that it would be. My expectations were of the stereotypical, staid romantic drama; flouncy and overwrought. Instead, I found two characters who are not perfect but who suit each other immensely if only they would realise it. The slow metaphorical dance that they engage in, circling each other (initially with insults and then with quiet admiration) is a joy to read and far beyond what I thought that it would be.
