Book Review: Pride and Prejudice



Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

I made it one of my literary goals for this year to reread this novel, which I think I last read as an undergrad.

(I also vowed to reread all eleven novels of the fantasy Wheel of Time series. I'm on book four. Oops.)

I can recite, almost word for word, the BBC version of this lovely, classic novel (the one with Colin Firth, not that other one), so I was eager to reread it, to see what was left out, and what was quoted exactly. It's still a wonderful story, with wonderful characters, that makes me smile at the end, sad to come to the last page (or the last scene, when watching).

I'm glad I reread this with a better background and understanding of the story - I certainly didn't appreciate it in college the way I do now! Elizabeth and Darcy are such classic characters, and so familiar to me, that they really are friends now, rather than people in a novel...

I am the author. Thank you for reviewing my book.

You don't know how long I've been waiting to post that.
