I absolutely love this book. I can never contain my excitement over it. It is brilliant, romantic, poetic, it's just simply amazingly incredible. How anyone could not like, no- love, this book is beyond me. I am in love with Mr. Darcy. Tall, dark, and handsome, how could I not? He has faults, yes, but that just makes him that much more likable and believable. I love Elizabeth's wit and character, and seeing her change from hating Darcy, to loving him completely. And I want to hit Mr. Collins over the head for his stupidity and ignorance of women's feelings and thinking he knows their thoughts!

Elizabeth's and Mr. Darcy's love for each other is so romantic and beauitful. It is timeless, undergoing trials and contempt before it could blossom into something truly majestic and true. Their love for each other is sweet and shy, yet sincere and ardent. Several times during the book I had to laugh, or found myself smiling stupidly over the awkwardness their love goes through, when Elizabeth starts to harbor feelings of gratitude and respect for Mr. Darcy which slowly turn into true love, and then seeing Darcy's changed character and that he still loves Elizabeth, and more, since she vehemently rejected him.

Reading Pride and Prejudice just makes me giddy with delight. The romance makes me sigh in contented bliss, and root for Lizzy and Darcy. This is an absolute beloved classic, one that I will love and reread eagerly forever.

“An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen
“They were within twenty yards of each other, and so abrupt was his appearance, that it was impossible to avoid his sight. Their eyes instantly met, and the cheeks of each were overspread with the deepest blush. He absolutely started, and for a moment seemed immoveable from surprise; but shortly recovering himself, advanced towards the party, and spoke to Elizabeth, if not in terms of perfect composure, at least of perfect civility.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen
“Yes," replied Darcy, who could contain himself no longer, "but that was when I first knew her; for it is many months since I have considered her as one of the handsomest women of my acquaintance.”
