About the book

image4.3/5.0

Elizabeth Bennett is young, clever, and attractive, but she and her four sisters are in dire need of financial security in the shape of husbands. The arrival of the pleasant nice Mr. Bingley and the obscenely arrogant Mr. Darcy in the neighborhood turns all of their lives upside down in this witty drama of friendship, rivalry, enmity, and love.  Jane Austen is arguably the finest female novelist who ever lived and Pride and Prejudice is arguably the finest, and is certainly the most popular, of her novels. An undoubted classic of world literature, its profound Christian morality is all too often missed or wilfully overlooked by today's (post)modern critics. Yet Austen saw the follies and foibles of human nature, and the frictions and fidelities of family life, with an incisive eye that penetrates to the very heart of the human condition. This edition of Austen's masterpiece includes an introduction by Professor Christopher Blum and several insightful critical essays by leading Austen scholars.

I liked the characters and witty dialogue, but I found the book to be too slow-paced and I couldn’t keep my interest. I guess it wasn’t for me!

Jeg elsker Jame Austen og hendes samfundsrealistiske fortællinger om kærlighed og ikke lade sig kue af samfundets normer

One Jane Austen’s best works. Skip the 2005 film- it doesn’t do justice to the book.
