    I’m not going to lie, I saw the movie before I read the book. I know that this is a major don’t, but I can’t do anything about it now. Anyways, I though both were fantastic. The best part about seeing the movie before reading the book was that I wasn’t let down by it, I liked it even more. Usually movies leave plenty of details out, which Pride and Prejudice didn’t escape from, and you’re let down due to reading the book first.

Usually movies leave plenty of details out, which Pride and Prejudice didn’t escape from, and you’re let down due to reading the book first. In my case, I found the book fascinating because I got to know more about the characters and the plot itself. This book contained so many themes! I couldn’t help but pick one out of every chapter, every plotline, and every character. Some big ones I noticed were class distinctions and economic status and turmoil, war, changing of the seasons, family and the importance of inheritance, love and betrayal, and most obviously, pride and prejudice. The best part about all these themes is that they were nonstop. They literally kept popping up in every instance. Jane Austin is quite the lady. I really like how she made notice of the difference between men and women, yet showed how they’re exactly the same. Women search for men for support, men search for women for status. It’s really an interesting way to look at it. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to read it. However, I don’t believe that many guys would enjoy it. It’s a bit of a click flick, well… chick book? Anyways, the only part that was a tad bit confusing was all the relations. The text itself wasn’t hard to follow, but keeping up with all the characters, their backgrounds, their relationships and their family ties that they had going on was somewhat confusing. I had to keep reminding myself of what had happened at the beginning of the book. Nonetheless, Pride and Prejudice was one of my favorites.

    The Complete Illustrated Novels of Jane Austen (Volume 1) includes the books; Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Persuasion. I have always been curious about the works of Jane Austen and have been recommended her by numerous people. I began this book with very high expectations as I know that they are all classics and are loved by many. Pride and Prejudice: I had a hard time making a positive connection with the characters in this story. I found myself more annoyed by many of them especially The Complete Illustrated Novels of Jane Austen (Volume 1) includes the books; Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Persuasion. I have always been curious about the works of Jane Austen and have been recommended her by numerous people. I began this book with very high expectations as I know that they are all classics and are loved by many. Pride and Prejudice: I had a hard time making a positive connection with the characters in this story. I found myself more annoyed by many of them especially Miss Bingley. There were times I was confused as to who was speaking and thought that the conversations dwindled on and on. Most of the plot moved along so slowly that I had a hard time keeping any interest in it. This was especially true during the dialogues between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. I had to force myself to continue reading, in hopes that it would get more interesting. It wasn’t until nearly half way through the story that I began to connect with Elizabeth. Although Mr. Darcy did somewhat redeem himself in the end, I didn’t find him to be as amazing as he is portrayed to be in popular culture, which was a let down. I had hoped that he would be the type of character that I would remember and fall for, so to speak. All in all I was very disappointed in Pride and Prejudice. Mansfield Park: After reading the Pride and Prejudice I now have an understanding of Jane Austen’s writing style. Unlike Pride and Prejudice I have not heard very much about Mansfield Park, so I did not know what to expect. However after not being thrilled by the first book, I must admit my hopes weren’t very high for this one either. I found the plot for Mansfield Park to move along and get to its point faster than I expected. Early on in this story I found that there was very little character development in terms of the personalities of the main characters. I found myself wishing for more of this and more physical descriptions of the characters. Although I found the main character Fanny to be quite dull, she was the underdog and I was rooting for her happiness. Throughout the story I couldn’t help but wonder if being raised at Mansfield, hindered Fanny’s development rather than helped it. Had she stayed with her family she might not have been the timid anxious young woman she was. I found that the story of Mansfield Park kept my interest more than that of Pride and Prejudice, however I didn’t have an overly strong connection with any of the characters. Persuasion: Persuasion is the third and final story in this book and is another that I knew little about prior to reading it. After somewhat enjoying Mansfield Park I had some hopes of enjoying Persuasion as well. However I found the plot to be somewhat bland. It wasn’t until the final chapters of this story that I began to make somewhat of a connection with Anne. Again, like in the previous two books I found that the character development lacked. It wasn’t until near the end that I felt as if I was starting to get to know the main character (Anne). I didn’t find the characters in this story to be nearly as annoying as those of the previous two books, which was a positive change. I found this book to be the quickest read out of the three and possibly the one that kept my interest the most. It took me quite a while longer to complete this book, than I had hoped. After reading Pride and Prejudice I couldn’t seem to force myself to read the other two stories straight through, so I read other books in between. I had hoped that I would enjoy these classics more, but was very disappointed. Perhaps my expectations were far too high and I just didn’t connect with the style of writing. Needless to say I won’t be rushing out to read any more of Jane Austen’s novels.

    Pride and Prejudice - This will always be my favourite book. Persuasion - I enjoyed this and I wanted to really love it, but there were some characters and actions that I found lacking. I will say though, that I really connected with Anne and wanted her to be happy. Mansfield Park - I've seen less than positive views on this book, but I actually really enjoyed most of it. The ending was disappointing and felt very rushed, especially when so much happened near the end!! Even though I found Edmund s Pride and Prejudice - This will always be my favourite book.

All in all, these three are probably my favourite Austen novels out of the ones I've read.

    Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen is my abselotely favourite book. The first impression that i got from the book was that its the most revoulutonary and feministic book. The fact that a women like Elizabeth could turn down a man like Mr. Darcy at that time is amazing, and shows how strong Elizabeth are. I love it because Elizabeth has such a strong, inspiring personality. She is smart and knows what she wants. And is like the main role in most of Jane Austens books. Which is why i also adore Ja Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen is my abselotely favourite book. The first impression that i got from the book was that its the most revoulutonary and feministic book.

    First off, let me start by saying this book was a hundred times better than 1984, in my opinion. It had a much more interesting plot line, and I didn't find it painful to pick up and actually read by my own volition. The olden days kind of language was new, and sometimes complicated and somewhat confusing, but after the first few chapters I just kind of got used to it, and it became a lot easier and smoother to understand (without having to stop and backtrack every paragraph or so). As for the First off, let me start by saying this book was a hundred times better than 1984, in my opinion. It had a much more interesting plot line, and I didn't find it painful to pick up and actually read by my own volition. The olden days kind of language was new, and sometimes complicated and somewhat confusing, but after the first few chapters I just kind of got used to it, and it became a lot easier and smoother to understand (without having to stop and backtrack every paragraph or so). As for theme, and why this book is considered an "AP book", we could start by simply evaluating the title of the novel. Pride and prejudice are both quite substantial themes on the parts of Elizabeth and Darcy. Mr.Darcy in the beginning is critical (or 'prejudice') of Elizabeth's social standing, and is held back to some extent by pride in his own wealth and standing. Elizabeth is also prejudice to an extent of judging Mr.Darcy unfairly in the beginning of the book based on his cold, almost snooty attitude toward her, which is the result of him pushing her away due to her social standing. Another theme, probably the most apparent of them all in this particular book, is love. The driving base and plot line of this entire story is the romance between Elizabeth Bennet, a girl of relatively low social standing in a class based society, and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the wealthy and highly regarded master of Pemberley. At first, the love of Elizabeth and Mr.Darcy is slow and cautious in the beginning, almost as if they were trying to convince themselves not to fall for one another, due to certain circumstances. As in all great love stories, however, love conquers in the end, and Elizabeth and Mr.Darcy overcome their struggles and obstacles to be together. A very good book, in my opinion, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has not yet read. :)

None of the dramatisations had whetted my appetite; I found them slow-paced and tedious. The book turned out to be engrossing. There’s no denying that it’s slow-paced: so slow that very little actually happens, but it still manages to be entertaining. The whole book is a social commentary, although dealing with a very narrow stratum of English society. There are no pickpockets, moneylenders or starving orphans. Even the poorest in the cast of characters have servants. Mr Bennet is a ‘gentleman’ i.e. he has inherited enough property to allow him to live on the income it generates. His problem is that he has only inherited a life interest and on his death the estate must pass to a male relative. He has five daughters, but no son. A distant male relative will inherit and the daughters’ only hope of a secure future is to make a ‘suitable’ marriage. The slow pace allows the characters to be fully, and brilliantly, developed. Mr Bennet is very endearing and Mr Collins hilariously appalling. What came as a surprise was the humour, although that didn’t conceal the biting mockery of a social system that condemned young women to a life that consisted of nothing but embroidery, art, music – and the pursuit of a husband. I now understand the longevity. I bough the Kindle version as part of Jane Austen Collection: Her Complete Works for only 77p. The only formatting issue is the occasional disappearance of the space between words, which is easily ignored.

    I really savoured this piece of a novel. Austen’s keen annotation of 19th century English society—checked with almost pure officious and ostentatious civility—and its foundation tempered with her wit and satirical tastes is just too good for me. So seldom was I in a torrent of emotions—at times frivolous, at times vehement—as this. Her fashion in relating Mr. Darcy’s self-struggles with his feelings towards Elizabeth and her reluctance as to acknowledge it was such as to elevate my fancy.

Her fashion in relating Mr. Darcy’s self-struggles with his feelings towards Elizabeth and her reluctance as to acknowledge it was such as to elevate my fancy. Pride And Prejudice is akin to a fenced garden, filled with delicate roses, but with a closer scrutinizing, comes into view menial shrubs and rotten floras. It recounts the story of the Bennet family, with Mrs. Bennet’s chase of accomplishments for all her five daughters, set in a backdrop of the landed gentry. It is followed through Elizabeth’s, second to the siblings, lively, opinionated point of view. I would further venture to allude that Pride And Prejudice candidly refers to Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, respectively. The former’s forbearance, as it appeared to Lizzy, is all that is marked with pride and self-conceit, which may well be credited to the latter’s prejudices and misapprehensions. Moreover, the amorous and romantic theme of Pride And Prejudice may not be as violent as that of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights or as tragic as Shakespeare’s Romeo And Juliet but is of the same, if not superior, remarkable quality.

    Pride and Prejudice has always been one of my favorite books. I first got a hold of it in the fourth grade. Back then I didn't understand it. The language was hard to grasp, the characters were one dimensional, and I didn't quite understand what the deal was with Mr. Darcy. The only thing that I could hold onto was Elizabeth Bennet. There was a girl that I could admire, a character who seemed very real to me. She was spunky, and full of a fire that admired. I wanted to be Lizzy.

The book took me forever to finish, and when I was done I didn't care if I ever read another word from it again. I put it down, and that really should have been that. Sometimes characters stay with us though. Certain characters are impossible to forget, and they live on in our lives, popping up when we least expect it and teaching us things. That was what Elizabeth Bennet did for me. I never quite forgot her. I re read the book again in high school, and I read again once a year. It lives on my shelf, and in my life, because I understand it and relate to it ways that never quite go away. I know now what it is truly about.

    Pride and Prejudice is a book that is full of gender and social stratification. It is a book that once you pick it up, you do not want to put it down. There is never a dull moment when it comes to matters of the heart. This book is full of romance, comedy, and drama. It is also a guide at learning how to be argumentative in the most civil way. There are many different characters in this book but the main two, Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy, will grab your attention early on.

    I'm one of those perennial fans of Jane Austen. Read most of the novels -- P&P many times -- and watched a good portion of the TV series and/or movies. My favs being the PBS series with Colin Firth, Emma with Gwenyth Paltrow, and Clueless with Alicia Silverstone. In other words, I just never get tired of Austen's style. BTW, just saw "Jane Austen's Book Club" -- it doesn't rank as anything special, but it's a good chikflik. I'm one of those perennial fans of Jane Austen.

    Mansfield Park:This was actually the first Jane Austen book I had ever read and felt disappointed by the end. I was fine that the heroin, Fanny Price, didn't have a strong personality throughout the book. I mainly disliked the build up of all the characters only to have it end abruptly. It was like I was being told a story only to have the story teller get bored at the end and close the book while summing up the end in a tired way.

    This is probably my favorite book ever. I reread it all the time in my free time. I love Austen's characters, especially Lizzy Bennet ans her fresh sense of humor. The relationship dynamic in this book is between Lizzy and Mr. Darcy and all I'm going to say is 'Best dynamic ever'. You'll have to read it if you love quirky characters, slight revered storyline, mixed with several relationship angles. This is probably my favorite book ever.

    I read this novel for a writing class. Although I usually prefer modern literature and often bestsellers, reading a classic like this makes one realize what literature is all about. Even today and with a totally different social structure, this novel continues to capture the interest of any reader.

    I read this after falling in love with a BBC adaptation that aired last year. I have never been a fan of English Romantic literature, and was surprised by how much I adored this book. Jane Austen weaves such a vivid tapestry of time and place, that I was able to lose myself completely in her story. And, oh, that Mr. Darcy!

I have not only read the book multiple times, I have listened to it on audio and love watching the movie. Excellent read! My favorite book of all times. Mr. Darcy and Ms. Bennett... Just wow!!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I find it very lovely. I got intrigued with Mr.Darcy and Lady Catherine and her fond relation of Mr. Collins. I have actually watched a movie that was derived from this book, its Bride and Prejudice. I found out, that it was the same thing, the names were changed, and some scenes rearranged, but still both charming and lovely. Splendid indeed. :)

    When we studied Jane Austen at school, I'm ashamed to say I found her books boring. Astonishing really, because Pride & prejudice is a book I come back to again and again now I'm older, and never get tired of the TV & radio adaptations. Thank god I matured enough to enjoy Austen's brilliant and witty observations. The interactions between characters are soooo good!

    Took in the story for the fourth time. Although this time around, it was via an audiobook and was narrated by Rosamund Pike and it was even more brilliant :). Jane Austen would always be a classic. And every read brings something new you might have missed at one time or the other in the previous readings.

    I own an earlier binding of this collection. What do I have to say about Austen? She's just fabulous. The pinnacle is Pride and Prejudice and (sigh) Mr. Darcy.

    When I read Little Women I thought I might die of boredom, and feared the same from this book, but I ended up really liking it. It's actually interesting and moves fairly quickly. It's got relateable characters and a relateable story line. It's a good read that won't send you snoozing.

    The fine art of female maneuvering, with kindness, wit, charm and grace. Austen's language can be like the things you smell under the obvious in a chocolate cake--butter, almond extract, salt--the inclusions which provide complexity and enjoyment beyond the shout of chocolate and the sugar rush.

    Nobody does scathing social commentary like Ms. Austen! I can't even say how many times I have reread Pride and Prejudice. It's an old friend. Someone recently said they thought it was a romance- yes, but SO MUCH MORE! Nobody does scathing social commentary like Ms. Austen! I can't even say how many times I have reread Pride and Prejudice.
