Pride and Prejudice

This classic novel, set in 17th Century England, tells the story of the five Bennet sisters and their mother’s quest to marry them “well”.  Austen wittily points out in her famous opening line: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife”.  This novel dances with topics such as social class, false judgements, and second chances.  Austen paints detailed pictures in her readers’ minds with her vivid descriptions.  Her parade of characters is woven together with beautiful intricacies. Austen will have you begging for a happy ending long before she delivers one. 

If you’ve started reading it before and gotten bogged down with the details, try it again – it’s worth it.  Before you know it you’ll be swooning over Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, firing back clever responses like Lizzy Bennet, and telling your friends that the BBC adaptation is the best one.

PS. Don’t even mention Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to me.  I hate the whole idea of it.
