This book is okay. It's not as good as Pride and Prejudice, and it contains lots of boring descriptions and trifling details. In addition, Lucy Steele's speeches are almost insufferable. However, I enjoy Austen's wit and her societal observations about people's pretenses. In short, rather than reading the novel, I recommend watching the 2008 BBC DVD movie adaption of this classic because it stays true to the book, and the changes that the directors made actually enhance the story.
