Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Jane Austen’s beloved classic opens with this witty and very memorable line: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” With all the twists and turns of a soap opera, Pride and Prejudice chronicles the drama that ensues when the wealthy bachelor Mr. Darcy moves close to the Bennet family home in the English countryside. The news of his arrival sends the socially ambitious Mrs. Bennet-whose main concern is finding suitable matches for her five daughters-into overdrive.

The book’s main character, the high-spirited Elizabeth Bennet, is a strikingly modern heroine: a woman who refuses to lower her expectations or transform herself to suit society’s norms. Austen’s novel achieves a remarkable balance, serving up barbed criticism of the obsession with money, status, and matrimony even as it draws us into a swoon-worthy love story. At its heart, Pride and Prejudice is a romantic comedy, and a darned great one at that. It’s so much fun to turn the pages and wonder about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy: Will they or won’t they overcome their excessive pride and initial prejudices to make a happily-ever-after connection?

Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen) Book Reviews

Great book!I stopped the reading once at my junior year. And I do wish I have read the book before I entered the university. It’s really good book about pride and prejudice..Score: 5/5

Love one anotherWe all hear it every day: racism. God created us as equals and we all have the same rights. God wants us to love each other, just as Jesus loves us. In the Bible, John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, so whoever believes in him will not die, but live forever in heaven.” God cares about us and loves every single one of us, despite all of our messes and sins. When Jesus died on the cross, he erased all our sins and made us pure. So try to be perfect. Treat everyone the same, wether black, white, yellow, or red, think of each other as equals. So try to make the world a better place, and show a little kindness each and every day. May God bless you and keep you safe in these difficult times..Score: 4/5

AmazingDecided to delete social media and spend the quarantine getting back into books. I picked this one and am so so glad I did. Such a page turner! I found myself so internally excited at certain points could not put it down. It was like stepping into a time machine! I also really enjoyed the convenience of Apple Books allowing you to so easily display word definitions with out truly interrupting the read..Score: 5/5

200 years later it’s still amazing.200 years since it was published and we are still reading it. The reason: It’s just good. I’ve read it four times and will probably read it again soon to fall in love again with Elizabeth, laugh at Mr Collins, and marvel at how emotionally stunted Mr Darcy is. Seriously. The whole book could be a leaflet if he was more emotionally intelligent. It’s a time capsule from a different world and even though I’m a guy who works with his hands (doubt I was ever her ideal demographic) Austen’s work holds a special place in my heart..Score: 5/5

Love It!This has become my all-time favorite classic book ever since I’ve read it five years ago. I’ve read it and watched the movies multiple times. I can’t recommend it enough..Score: 5/5

Simply deliciousA wonderful journey of human behavior and timeless love. A must read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Score: 5/5

LOVED ITThis is by far the most beautiful book I’ve ever read. Totally fell in love with every detail, the lively Lizzy Bennet and socially awkward Mr Darcy. I don’t think I’ll ever find a book as wonderful and heartwarming as pride and prejudice..Score: 5/5

READ THISI have an unholy obsession with this book...it is soooooooofoffofofofoofefokmkv amazing. If you’re reading this you better read this novel I swear..Score: 5/5

Ok so hear me outI know that this is a classic, so the rest of the teenagers out there are thinking ‘boring!’ But hear me out. This is pretty much our lives! Sure it’s a bit formal and chaste, but this is so classic that it became a stereotype that we used in elementary and middle schools (remember the ‘you hate her, and she hates you so you guys are totally made for each other’ thing) I mean you will never regret reading this book in the long run. Maybe you’ll regret reading it at a certain time, but you can’t hate it. Unless you’re too dumb to get the humor, then go ahead..Score: 5/5

AwesomeI am ten and this book is good and confusing.Score: 5/5

Love story with complicationsI really loved the story even though I am not one to dive into romance books. This book offered some good love stories: one happy at the beginning, one with a rocky middle story and of course the one that was unexpected. I really liked this novel and it kind of inspired me to go looking for love..Score: 4/5

To those saying it’s boring...Not trying to be rude, but... Just because your literary skills are poor, doesn’t mean a book is boring or bad, it just means that you need to work on expanding your vocabulary and you need to start reading more. You can’t say a book is bad just because you can’t read it. I’m my own personal opinion, Jane Austen’s writing is beautiful and worth reading. Thanks..Score: 5/5

A must readThis book was the most captivating book I have read in a while. I wanted to read it because it’s a classic, and I have never seen the movie so I didn’t know what it was about. So glad I read this before watching the movie. This kept me anxious to read every day! What an incredibly well written book..Score: 5/5

More words than storyI really enjoyed the beginning, but then the book just took too long. Interesting story, I guess, but eventually there was more description than character development and action. If you’re looking for a book like this with more action, I would recommend Jane Eyre. No offense to anyone who likes this book!.Score: 2/5

Wow, where do I even begin?This book really is incredible, by far my favorite. Although at times I find the old language a bit hard to understand, (supplemented with the movies, it's easier to pick up on sarcasm) I adore this book.
