Product Description

Review

"thoroughly researched and full of little gems of knowledge"

(The Jane Austen Society newsletter)

"enjoyable and loyally enthusiastic tribute to Pride and Prejudice ... Fullerton casts an appraising eye over the more eccentric and dubious aspects of the novel's perpetuity  ... Fullerton's clear-sighted attention to the sheer enjoyment of reading Pride and Prejudice is a reminder of how consistently the novel's most minor details repay attention ... Thee book contains thoughtful plot and character summaries useful for orienting the school student and is full of trivia for Austen enthusiasts"
(Times Literary Supplement)

“everything you ever could want to know about Pride & Prejudice is found in a beautiful new, exquisitely illustrated new book.”

(This England)

'engaging and comprehensive study'

(Good Book Guide)

'astute and an eye-opener ... Fullerton is well qualified to guide us through the history of this sparkling book.'

(The Lady)

'This illustrated tome is a treasure trove of trivia, tracking the book from its conception through to its modern incarnations'

(Woman's Weekly)

Format: Hardcover
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.

Without knowing anything about the writer, you can instantly tell that her passion for Jane Austen is deep, long-standing and well-grounded.

This is a book for Janeites (if you like that term) or for lovers of Pride and Prejudice like me, who love to learn new things about the book and see it in different ways. You'll get that from Fullerton's work.

I was thoroughly absorbed in her chapters (almost character studies) of Darcy, Elizabeth and each of the minor characters, and picked up valuable information about Austen's writing style which I'd never even considered before. She was a trend-setter for her era. I enjoyed the brief history surrounding the publication and reception of P&P as well, and the quotes from famous people at the time, writing their initial thoughts of a book that no-one knew would gain so much in popularity over the next two centuries.

The discussion on the opening 13 words as well was wonderful and I may seek out the book she mentions.

I must admit, I skimmed sections in the chapters about international translations and some TV versions - they didn't interest me. Not because they weren't well-written, but they just didn't interest me personally. Neither did the chapter regarding all the merchandise relating to the book.

It all did made me think though, when reading about the 1995 `Colin Firth' adaptation - was I a Darcy-lover because of that TV programme, or because of a love of the book?

After much contemplation (well, a few moments reflection), I concluded that Colin Firth did spark the interest of my fifteen-year old self, but the book, once I'd first tried and fallen in love with it, is now the only book I re-read every year.

A very enjoyable, intelligent but not too academic read into the world of Elizabeth and Darcy.

Excellent book about Pride & Prejudice. Sums up why Elizabeth Bennet is the best heroine of all Jane Austen's main 6 books, and goes into detail on some of the P&P spin-offs, sequels etc., and tv/film adaptations

As most Austen fans will know, finding decent new literature on Jane Austen and/or her novels is hard to come by. This one however was very interesting by taking something that has been written about countless times and making it interesting again.
