Offers for Pride & Prejudice (Dover Thrift Editions) - Jane Austen

Community Quote

Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" is perhaps the best show of the old cliche, "You can't judge a book by its cover." The first things that the reader will notice upon picking up this novel would make him/her throw it aside and never look at it again. Any edition of it will unmistakably ... Read review

Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austen

Elizabeth Bennet is the perfect Austen heroine: intelligent, generous, sensible, ... more

incapable of jealousy or any other major sin. That
makes her sound like an insufferable  goody-goody,
but the truth is she's a completely hip character
who ,if provoked, is not above  skewering her
antagonist with a piece of her exceptionally
sharp, yet always polite,  18th-century wit. The
real point of the book though, the critical
question which will keep you  fixated throughout,
is: will Elizabeth and Mr Darcy hook up? Read this
genuine all-time  classic and discover the answer
while enjoying a story that has charmed generation
after  generation.

AdvantagesEducational and enjoyable

DisadvantagesSomewhat long and sometimes slow moving

"...versus marriage for wealth; of pride and of prejudice. The novel is admittedly a love story, primarily. If it is seen as nothing but a love story in some cheesy Mills and Boon style, the entire purpose of the novel would be overlooked. Underlying the love story, is a comic criticism of society and its norms, and this is the true theme of the novel. There is simultaneously a serious undertone, as the question of what is moral and righteous in a ..." Read review

One of the great classics

Advantagesclearly written, wonderful characters

Disadvantagesa little unbelievable

"Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice was my introduction to the so called Classics. Having studied a few Dickens at school, I wasn't really that impressed, but a chance purchase of this book changed my mind. A classic romantic novel, Mr Darcy meets Elizabeth Bennett and begins to fall in love. However, she dislikes him, allowing herself to be influenced by how others think of him, and by some out right falsehoods from a friend. When she rejects his marriage ..." Read review

Pride & Prejudice - A must have for me!

AdvantagesTouching and orginal story

DisadvantagesThe cover seems irrelevant

"...a happy ending! With Mr Darcy's pride and Elizabeth's prejudice the chance of the two coming together feels so improbable. Despite this, the reader will definitely keep their fingers crossed for the whole book as they see both pairs of lovers encounter each other so frequently, just hoping for their love to flourish enough for marriage. ..."
