Miss Austen was at the height of her wit when she penned this classic tale. The verbal exchanges between the characters keep you reading...what is not said between the characters keeps you coming back again and again.
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
Pride and Prejudice
