This is the original romantic comedy, brimful of wit and wisdom. When the haughty and aristocratic Darcy refuses to dance with Elizabeth Bennett, she instantly dislikes him, despite his reputation as a wealthy and eligible bachelor. Are her first impressions correct, or is there more to Darcy than meets the eye? Sharply observed and sparkingly funny, this is one of the most delightful love stories ever written.

This book was hard to read because of the ancient language used by Jane Austen. Having said that, once the plot moves forward with the witty central character, Elizabeth, and her refreshing outlook, it becomes easier to follow the language. What I liked about this was that it may be old, but this book could easily be set in the modern world. It shows us the problems faced by a middle class family with several daughters, and a selfish, selfish mother who would rather have her daughters marry into a rich family, than marry for love. Overall, this book had me gripped. Especially with characters like the egoistic but charming Mr. Darcy and quirky Charlotte. It's very dramatic. The emotions were very easily brought up through the language. Brilliantly written... it is a classic.
