Review of "Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen"
Kites rise highest against the wind - not with it.. (Winston Churchill)
I started to read this book a little reluctantly at first. I had always considered Jane Austen to be reomantic trivia - a view encouraged by the films.I was pleasanlty surprised. Austen's writing style is cleverly composed. She intertwines dialogue with indirect speech and narrative in a manner that makes you feel a part of the action.
The storyline progresses well through the novel. The main theme made clear from the opening line - Marriage!!A number of sub plots revolve around the courtship of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy providing interest and intrique.
The characters are well developed with the central character of Elizabeth firmly securing empathy from the reader at an early stage.The novel delivers a lesson in morality - never judge a person by their appearance.
