Read 2 times. Last read May 12, 2011 to May 19, 2011.

There's a reason this book is a classic and has been retold countless times and every time I re-read it I find new reasons why it is so beloved. The humour still causes a smile and you just can't help but get sucked back in no matter how many times you've read it.

I've read the story too many times to count, but I still find little lines and comments that seem new to me when I read it. Is Elizabeth the most likeable heroine in literature? No. Is Mr Darcy the perfect man? Probably not but the point is that when you put them together, magic happens and two people, who should not be a fit for each other, somehow are perfect together and sometimes you want to slap Darcy or strangle Elizabeth but that's part of the charm and if you haven't read it, please do! It is charming, it is witty and it is a book that just makes you smile at the end of it.
