prideTitle: Pride and Prejudice

. . . . .

Author:

Jane Austen

. . . . .

What the book is about:

When Elizabeth Bennet meets Mr. Darcy she is repelled by his overbearing pride, and prejudice towards her family. But the Bennet girls are in need of financial security in the shape of husbands, so when Darcy’s friend, the affable Mr. Bingley, forms an attachment to Jane, Darcy becomes increasingly hard to avoid. Polite society will be turned upside down in this witty drama of friendship, rivalry, and love—Jane Austen’s classic romance novel.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

Mr. Darcy.

(If I need to say more after that, I’d say the language is beautiful, the characters are deep and relatable, and the story will make you sigh with all the contentment in the world. And we need young women to continue to read and share classics. Amen.)

. . . . .

    This is my absolute favorite book of all time! And it says a lot about girls and views on relationships as well as first impressions!

    AHHhhh, now I want to go read it again, and watch the movies!

    I’m trying to catch up after the weekend wedding of our son to the sweetest girl in the world. 😉 I had to comment on this one because, well, my daughter and I watched the movie so many times together (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read the book) and now her girls, 4 and 2, are avid fans. Yes, I know. It’s hilarious to hear Nora say, “Nona, do you hab Pribe and Prebejice?” They sit primly and properly on the sofa and turn the pages of a book, just so, emulating the Bennett sisters. I will catch it on video one day…

    Loving your list. My goal is to catch up on the book club since I can now breathe. 😉

    Just as loved as Anne of Green Gables! I want a Gilbert Blythe/Darcy in my life!
