Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin is the timeless story of Elizabeth Bennett, her family, and the formidable Mr. Darcy. It’s a love story. It’s multiple love stories, actually. And it’s about family, duty, honor…and lots and lots of pride.
A reason why this story endures through today is that the characters, their strengths and their many, many flaws, read just as relatable to today’s readers as they did one hundred years ago.
The language of the book itself can be a barrier for some people. The speech pattern and word choice are not always natural to the 21st-century reader, and so do take a bit more time, attention and focus.
That said, Austin is brilliant, and her mastery with language will make you laugh, cry, and will captivate you throughout the story. She is merciless to with her characters and as unforgiving to their flaws as the rest of us.
Don’t be intimidated by the language or the thought of this book. Once you’re in it, you’ll see that there was no reason to be in the first place.
