Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Jane Austen’s beloved classic opens with this witty and very memorable line: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” With all the twists and turns of a soap opera, Pride and Prejudice chronicles the drama that ensues when the wealthy bachelor Mr. Darcy moves close to the Bennet family home in the English countryside. The news of his arrival sends the socially ambitious Mrs. Bennet-whose main concern is finding suitable matches for her five daughters-into overdrive.

The book’s main character, the high-spirited Elizabeth Bennet, is a strikingly modern heroine: a woman who refuses to lower her expectations or transform herself to suit society’s norms. Austen’s novel achieves a remarkable balance, serving up barbed criticism of the obsession with money, status, and matrimony even as it draws us into a swoon-worthy love story. At its heart, Pride and Prejudice is a romantic comedy, and a darned great one at that. It’s so much fun to turn the pages and wonder about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy: Will they or won’t they overcome their excessive pride and initial prejudices to make a happily-ever-after connection?

    We all hear it every day: racism. God created us as equals and we all have the same rights. God wants us to love each other, just as Jesus loves us. In the Bible, John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, so whoever believes in him will not die, but live forever in heaven.” God cares about us and loves every single one of us, despite all of our messes and sins. When Jesus died on the cross, he erased all our sins and made us pure. So try to be perfect. Treat everyone the same, wether black, white, yellow, or red, think of each other as equals. So try to make the world a better place, and show a little kindness each and every day. May God bless you and keep you safe in these difficult times.

    I’m always happy to read this charming book. It’s cleverly written dialogues & script keeps me coming back to it. The movies made of it hold nothing to the author’s skillful ability to describe characters’s thoughts & dialogue!

    This has instantly become my favorite book and I will recommend it to anyone. While some of the words were advanced, it was a great vocabulary lesson, as I learned many new words. Wonderful book, wonderful characters. Well done Jane Austen.

    I am retreading the Classics and this book is still as difficult to read as it was the last time. But...who can fault the Classics?
