Summary / Annotation
Pride and Prejudice submitted by adipirro on July 8, 2011, 7:18pm I've always loved the movie(s) so one day I decided to read the book. I can say that it definitely helps to watch the movie first because it helps you to better understand how the language is used. A highly recommended book!!
Romantic Satire submitted by ljq on July 10, 2011, 7:41pm It's wonderfully written and the satire of Mr. Collins is much appreciated.

Good submitted by sonjabc on June 18, 2015, 3:06pm I expected this book to be unreadable, and was pleasantly surprised! There was humor and a good plot. I would recommend also watching the movie; it can help with comprehension. Overall, I can see why this is a classic!

Love it! submitted by evie2017 on August 25, 2017, 7:01pm I'm usually not a fan of romance novels, but Jane Austin is a masterful author. Loved it!
Favorite book! submitted by irksit on July 8, 2018, 10:42pm This is my favorite book of all time. It’s the only book I’ve ever read more than once!
Five Stars - Great Fun!

I avoided this book for a while because it’s a romance, which I don’t typically like to read. But several people told me that they had the same initial reaction, had to read it, and wound up loving it. So I figured, why not give it a shot?
Now I have too have joined the masses. I loved this novel. It’s surprisingly funny and full of interesting and amusing characters (some of whom I’d be quite happy never to meet in real life). And while I found myself rolling my eyes a bit at the drama between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, it was still rather sweet and engaging.
Final Thoughts: Five stars. Incredibly fun and worth several re-reads.
It's good submitted by majean on July 21, 2018, 3:04pm I'm a rebel; P&P is not my favorite Jane Austen novel. In fact, it may be my least favorite, but it's still a great book.

This book kept me guessing. I found myself binge-reading it long after I was supposed to sleep.
At first, the language was a little confusing, but I got used to it (after re-reading several pages).
Jane Austen uses the very polite language of her time to criticize societal norms. It was really funny, reading about Elizabeth (main character) using very polite language while secretly rolling her eyes at her foolish mother and silly neighbors (and, at several points, Mr. Darcy). I now know this is called "satire", and Jane Austen's is some of the best
One of my favorites submitted by wellscai on August 12, 2018, 12:32pm Pride and Prejudice is one of those books I reread every few years. The characters are great, and Austen's writing is insightful and hilarious. Even 200 years later, you feel for Lizzie as she deals with her ridiculous relatives and tries to keep them from screwing things up with the dude she likes.
Rereading It Constantly submitted by granumm on August 15, 2018, 9:47am Timeless and enchanting, it's still one of my favorites.
Great read!!! submitted by amd12 on August 27, 2018, 11:51pm Classic novel. Love it.
Brilliant submitted by lstorc on August 31, 2018, 10:44pm Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's most revered story because of it intelligence and insight into humanity. It is still one of the best romantic comedy stories of all time!
Classic submitted by c_zhang on June 27, 2019, 10:56pm I love how the characters are written. The story and characters are engaging. This story isn't boring at all. It can be hard to read, but only due to the writing style.
Good book submitted by jasonc1177 on July 31, 2019, 7:57pm this book is great. Very interesting ~~
Classic Austen submitted by crp on August 10, 2019, 7:01am Please read the book before watching the movie adaptation. It’s a classic and I loved it the first time and the most recent time I read it.
Read it for the perceptive wit and superb character delineation submitted by sVfGI7Glt2pz7GZgVB90 on August 17, 2019, 11:21am Set in rural England in the early nineteenth century, Austen's dominant plot line has the second eldest daughter of the Bennett family, Elizabeth, in a turbulent relationship with the good-looking, rich, but dreadfully proud Mr. Darcy. Subsequent to a disastrous and rejected marriage proposal, both Elizabeth and Darcy eventually learn to overcome their respective pride and prejudice. A well-told love story.
