5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for girls! 7 July 2014
By Joel
Format:Paperback
My all-time favourite book: It's movingly romantic and not just a quaint insight into the sophisticated lives of old-timey Blighty either - it's genuinely funny too! You may have heard people say that P&P is a funny book, well I can confirm: Austen truly was a wit ahead of her time! This isn't just a good BOOK - it's given us some great films and TV shows too (my favourite being the 2000s version starring Keira Knightley). I'd give P&P ten stars were it possible to do so, oh hell, I'll do it anyway... **********!!!

Joel.

1.0 out of 5 stars FRAUD! FRAUD! FRAUD! 19 May 2014
By Zachary Good - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
NOT by Penguin Classics! A CreateSpace Ripoff!

Despite the clever attempt to deceive the buyer, this is NOT the Penguin Classics edition of Pride and Prejudice, but a worthless production from CreateSpace.

Comically large (8.5"X11") with no spaces between paragraphs and miniscule fonts, this book is unreadable.

I'm so sick of these ripoffs. Notice that the cover is identical to the Penguin Classics edition, but without the Penguin logo. As this piece of trash is the #3 result for an Amazon search for "Pride and Prejudice", I'm guessing the thieves selling this book are doing fairly well for themselves. Do yourselves a favor and look down to the #8 result (or below) for a readable copy by a real publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is soooo funny! 16 Aug 2013
By Lfmiller - Published on Amazon.com

Ok. I'll admit I've read this book many times. If I'd read the Bible as many times, I'd be a theological genius or savant or something. I'll also admit I own the complete finished works of Jane Austen in hardback, though I seldom read her other works anymore. I've been out of grad school for 35 years, after all. Furthermore, I will admit I have 3 copies of P&P on my Kindle. One of those copies is AWFUL--riddled with editorial errors attributable to digital input glitches. The other is a bit better, but this version I had to get because it was free and it was illustrated. If you have a Kindle Fire and if you are fairly obsessed with color, as I am, you will enjoy this particular version. Here's why:

(1)It is written from a publication of the work close to the author's original spelling and phrasing--not true of today's more modern English versions of the work. Can't be having weird spellings and grammar quirks in high school and college English lit classes here. It confuses the students, who already wonder what's so great about this British old maid writer from a couple centuries back.
(2)It incorporates the illustrations from not one but two different printings of P&P--illustrations done after the author was deceased, mind you, but charming and roughly contemporaneous with her period, nonetheless.
(3) Because it has two different sets of illustrations, it is fascinating to see the different depictions of the characters. Interesting that the men seem to me to look similar in both sets of illustrations, and some of the minor female characters (who are not prominent in these illustrations) seem to look the same, but the principals are different. Lizzy is dark haired in one set and golden haired in the other. Jane is golden haired in both. I was startled by this at first, but soon I just found it more amusing than confusing. It doesn't take much to amuse me.

I got this free through one of the email services which offers free or low cost Kindle e-books. I'm keeping it and deleting the other two. It's cool, especially if you're an Austen fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this printed version! 26 Mar 2014
By Sidney Wolff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered three novels by Jane Austen for a class. It was my misfortune that all three were published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. All three are unacceptable. Pride and Prejudice and Emma have no page numbers, chapters start in the middle of the page, and the books are physically too large to hold comfortably. Sense and Sensibility is physically smaller, but the type is so small as to be unreadable, and pages from a completely unrelated book are in the middle. Look for copies of these novels from another publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pride and Prejudice (Top Five Classics Illustrated Edition) 19 Feb 2014
By Afternoon Attic Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This Top Five Classics Illustrated Edition is the best ebook version of Pride and Prejudice that I’ve found. It is organized for optimum maneuverability, boasts of adhering closely to the original 1813 text, is very readable, and includes 36 illustrations by the Brock brothers combining the illustrations from their 1898 and 1907 editions. For a standalone copy, this is it! Loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection 7 April 2014
By Kelly D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just reread this for my Jane Austen book club and I was nervous it wouldn't live up to its self-proclaimed title of "my favorite book," a title which I bestowed upon it after reading it about a decade ago. There was a lot of pressure on this book and it succeeded wildly; especially considering how well-known this story is in pop culture today. How many variations have we all seen? And we all know Darcy; even Colin Firth has played two different versions of him.

Austen creates a perfect story from beginning to end through a precise balance of drama, humor, love, and the two most ground-breaking hero and heroine of all time. Mr. Darcy always gets all the credit - I've even heard he is fiction's first bad boy - but this time around I couldn't help but notice how much I adore Elizabeth Bennet. Lizzy is the original inspiration for the Katniss's and the Tris's of today. She defies societal expectations by walking in the rain instead of taking a carriage, voicing her opinion out of turn, and refusing to marry for any other reason but love. The context of the book shows us how radical this truly is in English society at this time.

And the words! The language and the crafting of the sentences are so beautiful even if the story is not your thing. Definitely still my favorite book.
