Elizabeth Bennet, the second eldest of five daughters whom Mrs. Bennet is anxious to dispose of in marriage, is the most intelligent and delightful of all Jane Austen's heroines. Her vitality, vivacity and wit, her hasty dismissal of superior Mr. Darcy-- the most disagreeable man in the world'--how he improves his manners and she changes her mind, are the central ingredients of "Pride and Prejudice. It is Jane Austen's best-loved novel and through the depth and sparkle of its comedy we are encouraged to consider what balance of energy and order, playfulness and regulation constitutes real strength of character.

I am so disappointed as I only ordered this book for the amazing cover having already had a nice version of it but much preferring this cover. So I was very disappointed to receive such a different cover. Please change the picture. I'm sure it will make a nice gift anyway.

Well first of i was disappointed to find that the gorgeous cover which is displayed for the book at the top is not the cover at all. Since I got the book in a completely different cover which I have to be honest that I don't really fancy much. However the the inside font is beautiful and easy to read and as for the contents of the book, Jane Austen is amazing! Pride and Prejudice is a must read classic!
Back cover copy
One of the most universally loved and admired English novels, "Pride and Prejudice" was penned as a popular entertainment. But the consummate artistry of Jane Austen (1775-1817) transformed this effervescent tale of rural romance into a witty, shrewdly observed satire of English country life that is now regarded as one of the principal treasures of English language. In a remote Hertfordshire village, far off the good coach roads of George III's England, a country squire of no great means must marry off his five vivacious daughters. At the heart of this all-consuming enterprise are his headstrong second daughter Elizabeth Bennet and her aristocratic suitor Fitzwilliam Darcy--two lovers whose pride must be humbled and prejudices dissolved before the novel can come to its splendid conclusion.
