Ever since I was a little girl, I have known the story of Pride and Prejudice. Like most hot-blooded women, however, the reason that I really got in to it was because of Colin Firth's portrayal of Mr Darcy on the BBC adaption. I am not even sorry about that because if you watch the adaption you will understand why that is - the coming out of the water in the wet shirt scene, of course! When I watched this adaption I simply had to read the book.
I have to say that the book really does not disappoint. It is not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea as it is of course a romantic period drama, after all, but it is definitely worth a read as it is one of the great classics and simply must be read! Overall, I give this book 4 stars as it is enjoyable but perhaps a tiny little bit on the stale side for me, which is more than likely simply the era that the book was written in which cannot be helped.
