Two best friends of mine have already read this book and for the longest time, I was out of the loop whenever Austen was the topic. I put off reading it for ages when finally, one of them bought their own copy and immediately lent it to me.

After reading the first chapter, I realized I had been missing out. I expected to read about social nuances and propriety but I didn't expect the situations or the characters to be so funny. I have not picked up a classic to be read for pure pleasure in a long time and this book shows just why I should do it more often-- there's a reason it's called a classic. I didn't want to put it down and wish there was more.
