i agree with jas.
when i read it first years ago, it was just plain and boring.
rereading it , i found it with tons of puns and looked at it a different way.
It isn't just a romantic book, it teaches us how to look deeper into a person. first impressions are everything.
It def. is a mini soap. Some things were totally predictable.
I love the character Lizzy becuase she stands up for her rights as a woman and doesn't fall into the weak character women usually play in the times of kinds and queens.
It was def. worth the read

Pride And Prejudice : One of the best novels I have ever read in my life...

First and formost its the amazing charecterization by Jane austen... each charector well thought out and wonderfully sketched you just start to live in that age and believe that the charectors exist as you reda them...

And there is no part in the book that is wishy-washy or unimportant...e ach page gives an insight into each charector...

nd well ther is no charector you can pass off as not real... and the best part is that there is no mary-sue... u have a good and bad in everysingle person... even the mum who you generally grow to dislike!!!!!

And well the romance between Darcy and Elizabeth is very mature and yet really captivating... i mean it just goes to say that one of the most important things in love is respect... for thats how liz really falls for darcy doesnt she... she grows to respect him and then loves the mad she respects...

Well this romance is the first of its kind and many many many books to follow (mostly mills n boon) have written along similar lines as we have grown to love this type doe to PnP

<to b contd..>
