Ken Everett The amazing thing about "Pride and Prejudice" is that it isn't just a love story. But it is literally about being proud and prejudiced. Elizabeth's character is proud, she misjudges Mr. Darcy, the first time she meets him, due to a poor first impression. On the other hand Mr. Darcy misjudges Elizabeth and becomes prejudiced against her poor standing in the social economic class. It is frustrating and throughout reading the book you just really want to yell at both characters, because it is clear that they both adore and love each other, but they allow outside influences to misjudge everything they know about each other. Hmmm, now doesn't that sound a little familiar to what many of us deal with today?

Alexis I loved the book because it had so much content that the adaptations seemed to lack for me. I loved book!Darcy and book!Elizabeth because I could see myself in them more clearly and they inspired me. I loved them because they were so human, because they made mistakes and hurt people and couldn't fix everything the way they wanted to. In spite of that they found someone who loved them, as completely human as they were.

So yes! If you found this thread and were debating on reading, PLEASE. Do yourself a favor :)
