Prejudice is a novel of manners by Jane Austen, first published in 1813.
The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals
with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in
the society of the landed gentry of the British Regency. Elizabeth is
the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, Mr. Bennet living
in Longbourn. Page 2 of a letter from Jane Austen to her sister
Cassandra (11 June 1799) in which she first mentions Pride and
Prejudice, using its working title First Impressions. Set in England in
the early 19th century, Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Mr and
Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after the rich and eligible Mr
Bingley and his status-conscious friend, Mr Darcy, have moved into their
neighbourhood. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest
Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy has difficulty adapting to local society
and repeatedly clashes with the second-eldest Bennet daughter,
Elizabeth. Pride and Prejudice retains a fascination for modern readers,
continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books." It has become
one of the most popular novels in English literature, selling over 20
million copies, and receives considerable attention from literary
scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of
dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating
Austen's memorable characters or themes.
Mar 16, 20106.0 stars. Confession...this book gave me an earth-shattering Janeaustegasm and I am feeling a bit spent and vulnerable at the moment, so please bear with me. You see, I decided I wanted to get more literated by reading the "classicals" in between my steady flow of science fiction, mystery and horror. The question was where to begin.
Aug 12, 2007Where my massive crush on Jane Austen began: alone, on a hot day in Montana, cursing her name.
Mar 20, 2009I was forced to read this by my future wife.
May 07, 2012THIS BOOK IS MY JAM. JANE AUSTEN IS MY JAM. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT HER AND THIS BOOK. READ THIS BOOK. THAT IS ALL.
Nov 30, 2008NOTE: The review you are about to read was written in 2009. 2009! That's over 10 years ago! I was 17 and thought I was the smartest person ever! In all honesty, I barely remember this book. So, negative comments regarding my intelligence are no longer necessary. They will be ignored. As they have been for probably 7 years now. CARRY ON!
Mar 07, 2007"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen started off annoying me and ended up enchanting me. Up until about page one hundred I found this book vexing, frivolous and down right tedious. I now count myself as a convert to the Austen cult.
Mar 01, 2018To summarize: Mister. Darcy.
May 17, 2019i am currently being paid to reread this book. highly recommend that everyone works in publishing
Sep 18, 2018Austen was a brilliant writer.
Jun 24, 2010Well-loathed books I've re-read
Feb 25, 2008Critics who consider Austen's works trivial because of their rigid, upper-class setting, wealthy characters, domestic, mannered plots and happy endings are almost totally disconnected from reality, as far as I can tell. What can they possibly expect an upper-middle class English woman to write about in 1813 but what she knows or can imagine? Sci-fi? A history of the American Revolution? A real-life exposé of underage exploitation in the garment district of London? Come on.

A real-life exposé of underage exploitation in the garment district of London? Come on. What other setting can she be expected to tackle with authority? Austen's value lies in her portraiture: her characters are believably human in their concerns, vanities, failings and quirks. The plots serve largely to showcase their interaction and thus, her observations of human nature, which are pointed, accurate, and hysterical.
Nov 15, 2008Mr. Darcy...
Nov 02, 2016Society, with all its restrictive constructs, is one nasty piece of work.
May 27, 2009it is official: now everyone on the planet has read this book. i was the last holdout, and being the last person (excluding those who are just being born...... now) i am sorry i didn't like it more. i knew going into it that i was not a jane austen girl; i had read two others and thought them bloodless and mercantile. but everyone said to me, "well, you haven't read pride and prejudice is why you don't like her." which i thought might be valid. but it's not. because i still don't care. this is it is official: now everyone on the planet has read this book. i was the last holdout, and being the last person (excluding those who are just being born...... now) i am sorry i didn't like it more. i knew going into it that i was not a jane austen girl; i had read two others and thought them bloodless and mercantile. but everyone said to me, "well, you haven't read pride and prejudice is why you don't like her." which i thought might be valid. but it's not. because i still don't care. this is not the greatest love story of all time. it's more like the most amiable alliance of compatible feelings that ends up in a mutually agreeable union and merging of fortunes and temperaments. i mean, really. this book needs heathcliff to come barreling in on a stallion all wet from the moors to ravish all five of these daughters and show them what a real man is all about. now there's a love story...
Sep 17, 2017Well, I finally finished this classic novel, by Jane Austen, set in the 18th century, and I have to say it was worth all the time I took to read it. I absolutely loved the main characters, the humor, and most of all the romance. I watched the movie and loved it also, but the book is much more detailed and descriptive.

Oct 18, 2008Some years back in one of my APAs, someone castigated Jane Austen's books like this: "All those daft twits rabbiting on about clothes and boyfriends and manners."
Oct 24, 201118 chapters in... I want that to sink in for a moment... ok. 18 chapters in and NOTHING has happened. I am enjoying her writing style very much, but I also enjoy the back of an occasional cereal box so that may not mean much. We will see.

Jan 01, 2013Often imitated, never matched. Nobody can do it quite like Jane Austen.
Oct 10, 2006This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. So the other day Elizabeth and I are in the book store and she saw this book, and said she really wanted me to read it. In horror at the thought of reading what I thought was a 'chick book', i immediately countered that she would then have to read one of my favorites: Dune. She agreed!
May 08, 2010"I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that it had begun."
Mar 06, 2014I am so genuinely surprised at the positive experience I had reading this book! I had so much fun reading it and can now understand why people love it so much :3 Let's be real this deserves 5 stars <3
